IVF Australia Blog - Fertile Minds

We would like to share our knowledge to educate and support those looking to grow their families. Our Virtus Health fertility network consists of IVFAustraliaMelbourne IVFQueensland FertilityGroupTasIVF and Virtus Fertility Centre.

One in six couples experience trouble conceiving, and we are working towards a future where everyone in the community has the opportunity to create a family. Patient care, scientific and clinical leadership and a passion for making a difference to people’s lives is always at the forefront of our minds.

We bring together leading doctors, scientists, researchers, nurses and operational staff to provide the highest quality of care across the full range of reproductive and fertility issues. Our Fertile Minds blog provides fertility related information authored by our leading minds from across the group. Here you can find the latest research, studies and fertility related information to help you understand fertility - from planning right through to treatment and technologies.
