Specialists in fertility

When you see a fertility specialist, you want to know that you are getting the best possible advice. 

  • Our doctors specialise in fertility, and many have gone on to gain a CREI (Certificate in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility). This is only available for doctors who are fellows of the Royal Australian and New Zealand of Obstetrics and Gynaecologists (FRANZCOG). More on CREI.
  • Fertility Associates have been accredited by FRANZCOG to train new fertility specialists towards a CREI accreditation.
  • We’re the only New Zealand clinic to graduate specialists in the CREI programme in the last ten years, and we have CREI doctors in every Fertility Associates clinic.

Excellent success rates

Fertility Associates has excellent success rates - that are well above the American average, embryo for embryo.  

We compare our pregnancy rates with clinics in the USA, as they have some of the highest pregnancy rates internationally and clinic results are published with enough detail to allow accurate comparison.

For example, at Fertility Associates a woman aged 35 years has a 40% chance of having a child per embryo, compared to an average of 33% for women in the same age group from the USA.

We used to compare our success rates with clinics in Australia, however this information is no longer available.
