Nino Topuria is a psychologist at Beta Plus Fertility Clinic, where she provides individualized support to patients, surrogates, and egg donors to help them make informed decisions and seamlessly navigate the surrogacy process.
Highly qualified and impressively credentialed, Nino is accredited by both the European Gestalt Therapy Association and the Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy Association. She is also the host of the television program Meet the Psychologist. Nino earned her master’s degree in social psychology with honors from Tbilisi State University. Her teachers and mentors have included internationally renowned psychologists from the Netherlands, Italy, Ukraine, Georgia, Spain, and England. Currently, Nino is doing advanced Post Graduate training course in Gestalt Psychotherapy. Prior to joining the Beta Plus team, Nino Topuria worked as a psychologist at the Davitiani Psychotherapeutic Centre, helping clients with stress management and self-analysis, and as school psychologist at Georgian-American School in Tbilisi.
Nino's philosophy is that emotional support and sensitivity are intrinsic to high-quality medical care, particularly in the field of IVF and surrogacy.
“Success in this area depends on preparing the mind and creating an atmosphere where expectations are clearly communicated among all participants,” Nino says.
To that end, every surrogate at Beta Plus Fertility Clinic must be evaluated and approved by Nino prior to participation. This is to ensure that they are psychologically prepared and fully aware of what to expect during the process. “But that initial evaluation is just the beginning,” she says.
In a world where circumstances change every day, Nino sees Surrogates monthly to provide the support they need throughout the pregnancy. Donors and surrogates are also reassured that Nino is available to them any time, day or night, should they need her. That continuous care policy has paid off: since Nino joined Beta Plus in September 2019, the miscarriage rate fell by 5% and the IVF success rate increased by 4.3%. “Learning and Advancing is a never-ending process,” she explains.
