Religious & Cultural Specialists
Respecting your beliefs
At IVFAustralia, we understand that you may have specific concerns about fertility treatment, based on your religious beliefs or cultural background. So, we have specialists available to ensure we can provide you with a treatment plan that is acceptable to your faith or situation, ensuring assisted conception is accessible to all.
If you require supervised IVF that adheres to Halacha, IVFAustralia has fertility specialists experienced in treating patients of the Jewish faith.
Throughout this process, a Rabbi and qualified female supervisors witness every step of the IVF process, including laboratory and day surgery procedures. Your treatment is also co-ordinated to ensure that no laboratory or treatment processes take place on a Saturday.
IVFAustralia has fostered a strong collaborative relationship with Rabbi Ulman, one of Sydney's most respected Jewish authorities on halachically acceptable fertility treatment.
The AJFN is a beacon of hope, offering financial and emotional support to Australian Jewish couples experiencing infertility, and encourages open and honest conversations about infertility within the community. The AJFN believes that no couple should ever feel alone on their fertility journey. They deserve to have the support they need to help build the next generation.
We will ensure that a female chaperone is always present when a female patient undergoes a clinical procedure with a male fertility specialist. We also have several fertility specialists from Islamic backgrounds who are familiar with the process around this request.
We appreciate the value of creating life, and some Catholic patients may choose to only create one embryo at a time, and we can make the appropriate arrangements for this. Our fertility specialists want to give you the best chance of success while respecting your faith, and so will discuss your options during your consultation.
Several of our IVFAustralia doctors speak Mandarin. If you and your family would be more comfortable with a Mandarin speaking fertility specialist, please let us know.
For patients where English is not their first language, we are able to facilitate the services of an interpreter to translate important medical, counselling and administrative appointment consultations.
