What Makes Us Your Best Choice

We get to know you and your individual case, so you get the best chance of success. Patients often come to us after failed IVF attempts at other clinics with no prior diagnosis or understanding of what might be causing their infertility or problems conceiving.

By starting at a diagnosis and getting you an answer as to why you might be having trouble, we’re able to tailor your treatment to precisely address your individual scenario to give you better results throughout your treatment.

Often times after a proper investigation and diagnosis, patients who have failed previously are able to achieve a successful result with us. We offer a range of treatments that can address your individual case, which can even mean a successful pregnancy without IVF!

Our Points of Difference

We do not treat patients with a ‘one size fits all’ plan.

Patients cycles are safely managed by a private clinician and care is customized depending on the patient’s need for fertility treatment.
That means you aren’t forced in to IVF if you don’t need it, and we’ll only provide the treatment you need for a successful outcome.

We guarantee patients will not have IVF if they do not require it.

That saves you time, and money!

You won’t find this elsewhere.

Our confidence in our team & success rates are so great, we now offer a guarantee to IVF patients that ensures you have no out of pocket costs on a second cycle!

Our new Embryoscope with time-lapse recording allows us to continually monitor embryos while they grow in an undisturbed environment before selecting the best embryo for transfer.
We are the only clinic north of Brisbane to have this state-of-the-art equipment and only the 11th in Australia.

In the field of IVF, the Embryoscope is considered to be one of the major significant advances for decades.

Donor Oocyte and Donor Sperm Program. We now partner with CentraLIVF to provide oocytes and sperm to patients.

We are one of the largest donor sperm programs in the state

We now offer interest free payment plans through ZipMoney.
