What people say about us


"Thank you all so much for helping to make our dreams come true. We appreciate how lucky we are to have our beautiful healthy baby, after our first IVF cycle. Our experience with you was so positive and stress free. We are loving being Mammy and Daddy!"


"Just a short note to thank you all so immensely for everything you've done for us throughout our cycle so far. Without the unbelievably helpful, positive and light-hearted attitudes of you all, it would have been a fairly different experience. Your reassurance and kindness goes to show you are made for this profession. Thank you for everything."


"Thank-you so much for helping me come into the world. My mummy and daddy are so grateful!!! We couldn't have done it without you. We are forever in your debt."


"I wanted to thank you all along with my wife from the bottom of our hearts in the unbelievable life changing work you do. It would be hard to imagine life without our two children and I know it would not have been possible without your teams intervention in both. So again your work will forever be appreciated and thank you again for all your help in recent years."


"A heartfelt thank you to you and the team for helping to make our dream of being parents a reality. We are loving seeing our baby grow and develop. The work you all do there is wonderful and everyone we encountered was professional, helpful and caring. Wishing you many more years of helping people realise this most precious of dreams."


"We would like to Thank You most sincerely for making it possible for us to have a family. We started our journey with Waterstone Clinic Clinic in 2007. We have experienced every emotion in those 8 years from great sadness & heartache to experiencing the greatest joys of all.

It has culminated with the arrival of a beautiful baby girl, her two older brothers, also conceived through ICSI are besotted with their little sister and are very willing to help out. We feel so blessed & grateful to Dr. Waterstone & his team for helping to create our gorgeous family. The fertility journey is not an easy one; but anything is possible if you really believe and have faith.

Thank you again Dr. Waterstone for your commitment to leading the change in reproductive medicine as it allows those of us unable to conceive naturally pursue our dreams in creating a family."


"We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Dr Waterstone and his team at Waterstone Clinic for their professionalism in implementing the PGD programme which has resulted in the birth of our healthy baby daughter.

Our story began three years ago when our first child was born with a rare terminal genetic condition, Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome. Our little girl lived for 2 weeks but once diagnosed she was taken off life support and only lasted a few precious minutes with us. Our agony at the loss of our daughter was further compounded when we learned that the chances of this happening to any future children we may have was 25%. We could not risk putting ourselves through this heartache again or subjecting another child to the pain of surviving a limited time with this syndrome.

We then learned of the PGD programme run at the Waterstone Clinic where pre-implantation testing is completed to ensure embryos are healthy and free from genetic conditions. After initial consultations we were approved for PGD and commenced the process in July 2014. Although there is no guarantee of success and many hurdles to clear, we always felt we were in good hands and the team at CFC gave us plenty of updates and support along the way. The result has been the birth of our healthy baby girl in Sept 2015 and this would not have been achieved without Dr Waterstone and his team.

Again heartfelt thanks to all at CFC and continued success with the PGD programme.


Once again we are truly grateful for all your help and support. We were overjoyed to welcome our new edition in June. Our baby boy arrived safely into the world and like the rest of us, he is truly adored by his big sister.

From our very first appointment in 2009 we always felt at ease in the knowledge that someone was only ever at the end of the phone should we have any questions and concerns.

We are forever grateful for our beautiful children and feel extremley lucky and blessed that everything was a success."


You made such a difficult process easy for us and it was a pleasure dealing with you. Honestly I don't think we would have continued without your positivity and encouragement. We are so so so grateful to have had the pleasure of dealing with you. You are amazing and fantastic representives of Limerick Fertility. "


"It is almost six months since the twins entered the world. I will be eternally grateful to you - not just for the amazing work done by CFC - but also for your care during my pregnancy. The babies are brilliant and have given us and our families immeasurable joy already and I cannot say enough good things about the care I recieved. "

"We cannot thank you all enough for all your support and assistance and for providing us with the most amazing gift we could ever dream of. There are no words to describe how happy and grateful we are. See you soon to hopefully expand our family."


"Dr Waterstone, Just a note to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the care and support over the last few months. Without you and all your fabulous team in the clinic we would not have our beautiful baby boy. Keep doing what your doing!"


 "Thank you to all of you, from the girls at front desk, to the amazing doctors and nurses and the clever lab staff. Your level of care, attentiveness, professionalism was amazing, we don't have words to thank you enough. You have made our lives complete, we are forever grateful."


"Thank you so much for everything...it doesn't seem enough to say just that after all you did for us....from answering our questions, for all your advice,  rescheduling our appointments, the hugs, everything...which led to the arrivial of the most beautiful little girl into the world. You are an amazing group of people."


"Thank you so much for making our dreams come true. We were just delighted to welcome our baby boy into the world. We are so grateful to you for your expert care and the thoughtful and considerate manner in which we were looked after."

"Thank you for making our dream come true after such a long struggle. We had a positive experience from our first appointment and throughout the whole process. Your office staff, nurses and medical staff were extremely knowledgeable and professional.

We felt they went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and answer our many questions. Thank you once again."


"Dr. Waterstone and team, the twins turn 8 this month!!! They are strong, clever, creative boys and as always we are so thankful to you all."


"Thank you all for your dedication, time and professionalism, you were all so wonderful. Our baby daughter arrived safe and well and brings joy and pleasure to our day."


"A huge thank you to you all for your care and kindness throughout our IUI process. You have all played a huge part in making all of our dreams come true. We are eternally grateful."

 "To everyone we met on our journey at CFC, thank you all so very much for your kind words, professionalism, support and encouragement. We are delighted to have met you all and to have had you as part of our journey. Warmest regards and very best wishes to you all."



"To the amazing Doctors & Nurses of the Waterstone Clinic – There are no words to express my thanks to you all. Our lives have changed forever because of you. Your amazing love and support was what got us through a very successful IVF. I don’t think any of you have any idea how wonderful you are! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much!"



"I would like to thank all the staff from the girls at reception, to the nurses and doctors. My experience at the Clinic was always positive even through the hard days!! Both the professional and personal touch was always present. But most of all, I would like to thank you for the pure miracle of our beautiful son! He is the light of our lives and without your help he may never have arrived! Thank you all so much."



"We wanted to (finally) take the time to thank you for the excellent care you gave us throughout all stages of our time under your consultancy. From the daunting days of fertility treatment right through to the amazing birth of our baby girl, you and your team at Fernhurst Clinic have been fabulous in every way.

Thank you so much, and please keep doing what you are doing – our lives have been changed remarkably thanks to you all."



"Well our journey has finally come to an end. We didn’t get the happy ending we were longing and hoping for but (and it’s a very big BUT), we did get to try very hard and really feel we gave it our all.

There are far too many names to mention but we would like everyone to know how much easier they made our journey and how grateful we are. We always felt very cared for and supported. You have a fabulous clinic and it really is the people in it that make it that way.

Wishing you and all your staff lots of success in the future."



"We had been trying for a number of years to have a baby and had been through a number of IVF cycles at our local clinic. We were devastated when the fertility consultant told us to give up. I work in the health sector and it was thanks to a conversation with one of my colleagues that I heard about the progressive work and the success rates achieved by Dr. Waterstone.

We decided to give it one last try and this really was our last hope of having our own baby.We were impressed from the start by the professionalism of the staff, they are all friendly and considerate and they definitely put you at your ease. The difference in the care and treatment programme was immediately evident. Dr. Waterstone's investigations were so thorough and our treatment programme was conducted to a completely different level of care.

We know that the whole fertility treatment experience is a roller coaster ride but you receive great support from the entire team from the receptionists to the nurses, to the embryologists. Thanks to Dr. Waterstone, we now have our longed for baby and are expecting our second IVF baby later this year".



"Waterstone Clinic delivers fertility treatments with an exceptional level of expertise. The staff are thoughtful and considerate and we really feel we received the best level of care. They understand the demands on people's lives and are efficient and punctual which is so important when you are trying to juggle work commitments and appointments.

Our care team were professional and empathetic but realistic in outlining our treatment options. When we needed support we were always able to speak to someone who knew our story and our circumstances. Their advice was always sound and they were always appropriately supportive.

Despite all the ups and downs and mixed emotions, attending the Centre was never a bad experience and our perseverance paid off as we now have a healthy baby and I am expecting our second IVF baby".

"Great work you guys do! Great staff - sensitive and reassuring through a difficult time. Amazing work!"



"We wish to express our gratitude to you for your excellent quality service and professionalism which you showed throughout all our contact with your clinic. All of your staff - including reception, medical, nursing and lab staff - have at all times dealt with us in an empathetic and discrete manner most apt for the type of service you deliver".



"After 18 months of trying to conceive, we were referred to Waterstone Clinic by our GP. It was an anxious time but right away from our very first consultation we were put at ease. The recommended tests were explained clearly and the investigations were thorough. So when the results showed no obvious problems for either of us, it was difficult to comprehend. Unexplained infertility is such a strange diagnosis, we didn't know whether to be happy or sad. Dr Peter was very clear in explaining our options and got us on track for our first round of treatment.

For us success didn't come first time round but we can testify to the care and support of the team particularly the nurses who have shared the ups and the downs with us. They are sensitive, supportive and practical in their approach always guiding and minding you along the way. They keep you grounded, they don't give you false hope but neither do they let you lose hope. They are true professionals.

We are now happily expecting twins and we cannot thank the consultants and staff enough for getting us this far along the road to realising our dream".



"Thank you all so much for our wonderful little family! Words cannot express our gratitude for all that you have done for us".



"We appreciate so much all that you have done for us, more often than not, you have gone above and beyond the call of duty for us - it may have been a friendly voice, a concerned look, good humour, a persuasive phone call, dodgy embryo sketches or a host of other kind gestures"



"Thank you for all your help and support in getting us to this stage. There are quite simply no words to fully express my gratitude and appreciation. Quite apart from the practicalities of success of the treatment, the emotional support, so willingly offered, at what was a very difficult time, is what remains in my head and my heart"



"The Waterstone Clinic is a place I will never forget and always be grateful. Keep up the great, gifted work".



"It so difficult to find the words to even come close to describing how grateful we are to each and every one of you. We have always been treated with the utmost respect, dignity and professionalism, and above all, a genuine kindness and concern for our situation".



"To the amazing doctors and nurses of Waterstone Clinic, there are no words to express my thanks to you all. Our lives have changed forever because of you. "



"To Dr. Waterstone and all the staff - the baby has colic and I havent slept in three months!.......Thank you very much for bringing this wonderful chaos into our lives!"



"I would like to thank all the staff from the girls at reception, to the nurses and doctors. My experience at the clinic was always positive, even through the hard days. Both the professional and personal touch was always present. But most of all I would like to thank you all for the pure miracle of my beautiful son. He is the light of our lives and without your help he may never have arrived".



"We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to you for the miracle that is our precious daughter. It was a long and difficult path but we certainly would not have arrived at the prize were it not for the dedication, support and skill of the very many people we encountered in the clinic. We are delighted to share a photo of the little lady as she learns to explore the world - from the ground up! We hope you enjoy the pretty face and we also hope that a glimpse of the image might give courage to those other men and women who pass through your corridors. From the front of house greetings to the friendly faces upstairs who worked with us during each nervous visit, to those we met whilst they skilfully used their hands in the lab, during egg collection and embryo transfer, we thank you most sincerely. Your work has brought us much happiness after all the heartache. May you continue your work safe in the knowledge that it has greatly enriched our lives".
