Patients Beyond Borders



Chapel Hill, NC (Vocus) April 15, 2010

Patients Beyond Borders, the best-selling consumer reference guide for medical tourism, announces the release of FOCUS ON: Barbados Fertility Center. This 32-page, full-color, interactive digital publication and eBook is being released to coincide with National Infertility Awareness Week, April 21–May 1.

Barbados Fertility Center (BFC), located in Christ Church, Barbados, is an internationally renowned, JCI-accredited center of excellence, specializing in all aspects of infertility management. Its unique approach offers couples a stress-reduced, holiday-style experience with state-of-the-art IVF and related procedures that have resulted in high success rates for couples unable to conceive a child for a year or more.

Since opening its doors in 2002, the center has helped thousands of couples to realize their dreams of successfully conceiving a child, using the latest in assisted reproductive technologies. BFC’s international team of specialists has also developed a Healthy Mind and Body Program, which incorporates reflexology, acupuncture, massage therapy, and counseling into their successful and affordable treatment plans. This holistic approach, coupled with the island’s tranquil beaches and the center’s cutting-edge technologies, plays a big role in BFC’s enviable success rates.

Dr. Juliet Skinner, BFC’s medical director, who graduated from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, and went on to specialize in obstetrics and gynecology, opened the clinic in her native Barbados in 2002. Realizing there were few options in the Caribbean region for couples experiencing infertility issues, she set out to develop a world-class IVF center specializing in state-of-the-art reproduction management in relaxed clinical and environmental surroundings.

“We provide the latest and best in assisted reproductive technologies, with an emphasis on physical, mental, and emotional balance,” says Skinner. “In addition to traditional services, we offer a number of procedures that many couples do not have access to in their home countries, such as vitrification (fast freezing of embryos and eggs) and preimplantation genetic screening (PGS).”

According to Resolve, the nonprofit National Infertility Association dedicated to promoting reproductive health and awareness of reproductive disorders, infertility affects as many as 7.3 million people in the U.S. alone. It is estimated that as many as 1 in 8 couples in America will suffer infertility issues, many of whom will seek medical assistance in the form of drug therapy or medical procedures such as IVF.

BFC is the only fully American-accredited fertility clinic in the Caribbean, and one of the few such clinics in the world. Its high standards of excellence, coupled with cost savings of 30–60% on comparable treatments in North America and Europe, have created a compelling option for thousands of couples.

“We were pleased to feature Barbados Fertility Center in our international edition of Patients Beyond Borders and are thrilled to see their story now addressed in the greater detail provided by our new FOCUS ON: series,” says Josef Woodman, CEO of Healthy Travel Media. “We hope to bring greater awareness of this truly remarkable facility to those seeking affordable, high-quality infertility treatments, coupled with a personal touch.”

Deep Church: A Third Way Beyond Emerging and Traditional

Feel caught between the traditional church and the emerging church? Discover a third way: deep church.

C. S. Lewis used the phrase “deep church” to describe the body of believers committed to mere Christianity. Unfortunately church in our postmodern era has been marked by a certain shallowness. Emerging authors, fed up with contemporary pragmatism, have offered alternative visions for twenty-first-century Christianity. Traditionalist churches have reacted negatively, at times defensively.

Jim Belcher knows what it’s like to be part of both of these worlds. In the 1990s he was among the pioneers of what was then called Gen X ministry, hanging out with creative innovators like Rob Bell, Mark Oestreicher and Mark Driscoll. But he also has maintained ties to traditionalist circles, planting a church in the Presbyterian Church of America.

In Deep Church, Belcher brings the best insights of all sides to forge a third way between emerging and traditional. In a fair and evenhanded way, Belcher explores the proposals of such emerging church leaders as Tony Jones, Brian McLaren and Doug Pagitt. He offers measured appreciation and affirmation as well as balanced critique. Moving beyond reaction, Belcher provides constructive models from his own church planting experience and paints a picture of what this alternate, deep church looks like–a missional church committed to both tradition and culture, valuing innovation in worship, arts and community but also creeds and confessions.

If you’ve felt stuck between two extremes, you can find a home here. Plumb the depths of Christianity in a way that neither rejects our postmodern context nor capitulates to it. Instead of veering to the left or the right, go between the extremes–and go deep.
