Bringing hope for childless couples, Fakih IVF successfully performed Micro-TESE in Dubai. The relatively new technique helps to find sperm in men who were told they could never become fathers.
Dr. Michael Fakih, founder of Fakih IVF, explains that some men are diagnosed with Azoospermia and can never get their wives pregnant naturally because they have no sperm at all,” adding “they may have gone through different methods which did not produce sperm for in-vitro fertilization (IVF).

A newborn baby is a wonderful blessing which friends and family look forward to welcome. Gone were the days where baby showers were given to the family’s first child and only women were invited. Today, many fathers-to be-are excited to be included as well.

Body water and electrolyte balance are essential to optimal physiological function and health and this can be particularly apparent during labour when a significant level of dehydration can develop rapidly as women in labour are often hot, stressed and do not have the time (or room!) to eat and drink fluids as required. Dehydration can lead to lack of mental focus and increased fatigue particularly so in prolonged labours and it is essential to maintain hydration in the early stages of labour as this will really help in the final stages.
Elete electrolytes contain 4 key electrolytes (Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium + Chloride) + 60 Trace elements in the perfect balance for your body. The electrolytes are ionic so they are bio-available for instant absorption and cellular hydration, hopefully making your labour as smooth as possible.

“The woman about to become a mother, or with her newborn infant upon her bosom, should be the object of trembling care and sympathy wherever she bears her tender burden or stretches her aching limbs… God forbid that any member of the profession to which she trusts her life, doubly precious at that eventful period, should hazard it negligently, unadvised or selfishly.”
Being pregnant and away from our own families must present an awful lot of challenges due to the absence of immediate support system from mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins… Continue reading
It was often said that a pregnant woman should eat for two. This is entirely untrue! What is true is that during pregnancy a woman’s body should intake the healthiest nutrients and vitamins and stay balanced, in order to have an enjoyable labor, birth and postpartum phase.
