“I consider that accompanying patients on such an important journey in their lives as the search for pregnancy, and helping them to achieve it, is one of the most complete and rewarding processes in our speciality.”

Graduate in Medicine from the University of Extremadura. Specialised in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Hospital de la Santa Creu y Sant Pau in Barcelona. Clinical associate professor at the UAB from 2018 to 2022. Since the beginning of my residency, my passion for assisted reproduction has always been clear to me. For this reason, I undertook a more focused training in this field, with multiple courses and an external rotation in an assisted reproduction centre with great international impact. For all these reasons, since I finished my specialisation in gynaecology and obstetrics, I have focused my professional career on assisted reproduction, working in major international centres of reference and continuously training with great professionals.

Interview
Why did you become a fertility expert?

When you start your residency (MIR in Spanish), everything seems interesting right from the outset. You are open to the many and varied opportunities offered by this speciality, until I did my training rotation in reproductive medicine; then it became clear to me that this was the field in which I wanted to specialise in and where I was going to feel more comfortable. Helping couples to make their dream come true gives me great satisfaction and makes me feel very useful.

Why are you proud to work at Fertty?

When Juanjo and Miguel Ángel asked me to join them, the truth is that I didn’t think twice. In fact, I had already visualised that situation, it was like a “déjà vu”. The possibility of working in a field you really enjoy and also doing so with a group of friends who are great professionals … you can’t ask for more!

What is your attitude in patient management?

I like to share the therapeutic plan with the couple, involving them in the decision-making process. This is how I believe an atmosphere of trust is generated. Empathy, sincerity, information and support are the keys to success.

Have there been patients who inspire you?

Yes, in personalised medicine all couples are a source of inspiration, some for their complexity from a medical standpoint, and others for their perseverance and resilience in the face of adversity. Life lessons that you take home with you.

How do you spend your free time?

Whenever possible, outdoors and sharing it with my family and friends. Hiking, the mountains in general, give me a lot of energy to face the new challenges that the day-to-day brings. I also relax a lot by cooking, putting a lot of love into the culinary dishes and of course sharing them with good friends.

How would you describe your personality?

I consider myself sociable, approachable, transparent, and loyal to my friends. However, I must confess that in certain situations I am a bit rigid, I like things in a certain way. I’m aware that flexibility is a great virtue, and the truth is that I try to improve this aspect.
