New to WA 

Moving to a new place can be a challenge – finding a new home, navigating a new area, making new friends, finding a new hairdresser, barber, GP or beautician.  So, how do you decide on a new fertility clinic? 

Your New Fertility Clinic 

Finding a new fertility clinic is just one of the hurdles you face when you move to a new area.  You can ask your GP, friends or family for recommendations, or even refer to online TTC forums.   

Ultimately, the choice is a very personal one, and not all clinics will suit all people.  Because of the physical, emotional and financial demands of fertility treatment, it is important to find the clinic and specialist that is right for you. 

What to look for in a Fertility Clinic 

Not all fertility clinics are created equal, so it’s important to know what to look for when choosing your clinic. 

Patient Centred Care 

Every patient’s circumstances are different, so your treatment plan should be tailored specifically to your individual needs. Your clinician should be able to explain in detail what is wrong, why they are recommending certain treatment, the pros and cons of different treatment options and the costs. 

Diagnosis Directed Treatment  

Accurate diagnosis and treatment of underlying problems in some situations may restore fertility without the need of assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilisation. Be cautious of clinics that recommend a one-size-fits-all approach towards treating infertility or who recommend complex and expensive treatment options before exploring other possibilities. 

Laboratory Standards 

While all fertility clinics are licensed and accredited there are questions that can be asked. Are electronic witnessing systems in place to minimise laboratory errors? Are the most advanced incubators and laboratory equipment being used? Are you given flexibility with your treatment options or are you repeating the same processes in vain? 

Does the clinic go above and beyond?  

For example:

  • Do they provide convenient parking? Are Telehealth consultations offered to spare you unnecessary travel?
  • Are there opportunities to provide feedback?
  • Do they encourage you to feel actively involved in making decisions regarding your own treatment?
  • Is there a willingness to accommodate feedback, good and bad, and utilise it to improve the treatment experience for all patients?
  • Offer complimentary treatment options, while maintaining a core of evidenced based medicine? 

Resources to help you choose a clinic
