Choosing a Best-In-Class Provider
For over 50 years, Monash IVF has led the way in reproductive care. We’ve helped bring more than 50,000 babies into the world and are dedicated to supporting our patients on their path to parenthood.
We understand that choosing a fertility clinic is a big decision. Often the costs associated with fertility treatment can feel overwhelming and choosing between a lower cost fertility centre and a best in class, full-service clinic like Monash IVF can be a challenge.
It’s understandable that lower pricing may appear attractive initially. However, there are many attributes to consider about the type of provider that may be able to deliver the best care and outcomes. Sometimes, reflexive decisions based solely on low pricing can end up costing more in the long run.
To empower you with as much information as possible, here’s a summary of the key differences and what additional benefits you will receive as a Monash IVF patient.
Success rates to be proud of.
After 50 years of continuous scientific improvements, we are extremely proud of our success rates. We are passionate about providing best-practice, evidence-based care that gives you the best chance of taking a baby home.

We leave no stone unturned.
We don’t believe in ‘one size fits all’ fertility treatments. Instead, we pride ourselves on leaving no stone unturned when it comes to finding out the root cause of your fertility challenges and designing treatment plans specifically tailored to you. Everyone is different, and we take the time to understand what is best for you and your unique clinical circumstances.
Specialists in complex cases.
We don’t shy away from a challenge – we embrace it! We do what it takes to help you achieve your goal. Other clinics may turn away complex cases in fear of skewing their success rates - but our focus is always on you. If we can help you, we will.
World renowned fertility experts.
Our team of fertility specialists are world leaders in their field. They are all highly credentialed, with many clinicians actively involved in research and education of the next generation of doctors. Our scientists and fertility specialists have helped pioneer numerous world firsts.
Your choice of clinic locations.
With the largest network of full-service clinics and consulting locations across Australia, you can rest assured that there is a Monash IVF location near you. Being a national organisation, we can provide you with flexibility. You can choose where you have treatment and can transfer to another Monash IVF location if you move states.
Holistic and comprehensive care across the whole journey.
We’re full-service, which means that our partnership with you doesn’t begin and end with fertility treatment. Instead, we operate across the continuum of care from pre-conception health assessments, genetic pre-carrier screening, all sorts of fertility approaches (not just IVF), genetics to assist with IVF, diagnostics during pregnancy and ultrasound care. This means we can provide continuous support to our patients throughout their entire journey.
Dedicated donor and surrogacy team.
We are experts in donor and surrogacy - Monash IVF achieved the world’s first birth from donated eggs in 1984 and Australia’s first IVF surrogate birth.

The donor and surrogacy team are always available to support donors, donor recipients, surrogates and intended parents throughout their journey.
