Clinic Contact Details

Fertility Associates - Christchurch's leading fertility clinic.


We used to compare our success rates with clinics in Australia, however this information is no longer available. We now compare ourselves to the USA – the country with the highest pregnancy rates, where clinic pregnancy rates are published in detail.   

Our chance of a baby per egg collection cycle is as good as in the USA.  However, unlike most clinic in the USA, we put embryos back one at a time to maximise safety for mother and child.

Unlike other clinics, we don't borrow our success from overseas. Our Success is measured on pregnancies within New Zealand - from the very Doctors you will see, using the same technology that you will experience at our brand new Christchurch Clinic.

We provide both publicly funded and private treatment - and are the only clinic where you can access both options.

We are the only Provider of Publicly Funded Treatment in the South Island. Which means you have all the options available to you - to help you make the best decision.

Fertility Cover

Many clinics make promises, but we put ourselves on the line with our Fertility Cover programme.

We are in the only clinic in Australia and New Zealand that does this.

Just like nature, fertility treatment may take some time to achieve success. The chance of having a child after 1, 2, 3 or more cycles is called a cumulative pregnancy rate.

Our Fertility Cover programme gives you 3 chances to have a baby, with a 70% refund if you are unsuccessful. The programme has been going for 5 years, with 85% of people starting Fertility Cover having a baby.

About 85% of patients aged 39 or younger are eligible for our Fertility Cover programme.  

The best thing you can do is talk to us

Being informed about your own fertility is the best thing you can do towards becoming pregnant.

We have some useful information to help you understand your fertility and if you are worried about your chance of having a baby, talking to one of doctors is the best place to start. You don’t need a referral from another doctor or your GP to see one of our fertility specialists but if you prefer your GP can refer you.

Book an appointment directly.
