While the assisted reproductive field has moved forward at lightning speed, and we’re proud to have stayed at the forefront, our reputation has been built on the personal support we bring to every case.
We recognize that by the time you reach our doors, you’re most likely tired, confused and scared to hope for success. Struggling with fertility affects every area of life – interpersonal, professional, financial, physical and social.
This journey can be for some one of life’s most stressful challenges, and we get that. This is why our approach at Embryon is reputed to be so empathetic and individualized.

While we are certainly very proud of our success record, even more so of the ongoing relationships we have nurtured with the patients who have trusted us with their life’s most important masterpiece.
While being heard and understood is so crucial for any fertility journey, the ultimate question every patient asks is “but will it work for me and what are my chances of success”?
Embryon has an established history of superior live birth rates recorded per transfer. We take great pride in the number of women we have helped achieve pregnancy, whether of an advanced age, through IVF, as surrogates, or through sperm and egg donation.
When it comes to building your family, we know that reaching our set goal can make the difference of a lifetime and we’re proud of our results.
Here at Embryon we have one job — to help you, your partner or your surrogate get pregnant. Every fertility blueprint deserves to be evaluated holistically so we determine the best answer for you; this could be different to how we might direct a patient with similar backgrounds or challenges.
Once we have determined which fertility treatment will be your best fit, we fully devote ourselves to ensuring it’s as successful as possible. A first attempt positive pregnancy test is what we strive for. But if that doesn’t happen, we continue to try. We don’t quit until you are fully satisfied and head home a success story.
The location of our clinic was selected thoughtfully, our main concern being the protection and care of embryos, ensuring the best environment for their development. We are located uphill and outside of the city center. Embryos are fed with fresh air, away from gas and exhaust fumes; mirroring the natural environment of the uterus and encouraging better growth.
