We invite you into our family, so

COVID-19 Response

We understand that our patients may be experiencing growing anxiety. We look to our professional bodies for up to date information on the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Fertility Society of Australia recommends that:

“For individuals attempting to conceive or preserve their fertility. At this point, there is no evidence to recommend contraception or cessation of attempts to conceive, either unassisted or assisted.

Risk mitigation measures (good hygiene, social isolation or distancing) according to the plan set in place by national and state, territorial or provincial agencies should be strictly adhered to.”

We hope these resources will support you to make informed decisions as we work together.
