Central IVF was founded a number of years ago by a Melbourne Fertility specialist, Dr Shlomi Barak. He saw time and time again that when it came to egg donation, Australia seemed to lag behind. Women who required the treatment were routinely referred to what we now refer to as the "Wild West". They were given little information about the process they were about to embark on, even less data about the foreign clinic and the doctors that would be treating them, and, often, minimal information about their donor.
Dr Barak realised that there must be a solution to this problem, which would provide patients with continuity of care, transparency throughout the treatment process, and, most importantly, ensure they would be informed and receive premium, fairly priced donor egg treatment. Dr Barak's vision became a reality 2 years ago when Central IVF was founded.
About Central IVF
Central IVF is a worldwide network of collaborating fertility clinics offering premium, fairly-priced and immediate donor egg treatment. It specializes in provision of donor oocytes, shipping worldwide to several locations including Tel-Aviv (Israel), London and Belfast (UK), Bologna (Italy) and now Canberra and Sydney (Australia).
Central IVF offers treatment standards that you have come to know and expect. We pride ourselves on our dedication to not only our patients (recipients) but to our donors as well. We provide extensive screening of donors. Our multidisciplinary team includes a physician, a psychologist, a counsellor and a genetic counsellor. Central IVF's rigorous screening process includes a full review of medical history, physical examination, psychological screening and testing for infectious diseases, as well as genetic testing. Dr Barak is personally responsible for the preparation of our donors for oocyte collection; he is assisted by Western-trained laboratory staff.
Central IVF is the first clinic in Europe to offer mandatory counselling to donors. More than 90% of our donors are proven fertile (had given birth to a child/children before donating), giving you an increased chance of pregnancy. Additionally, in order to give you peace of mind, all our programs come with embryo creation guarantees.
Egg Donation Australia Programme
Thanks to Dr Barak's experience, Central IVF has been built in-line with Australian standards. It has been externally audited and found to be in full compliance with the updated April 2017 National Health and Medical Research Council guidelines. Central IVF is proud to be able to provide its Australian recipients access to egg donation in Australia with little wait, removing the need to travel abroad. We are proud to be partnering with the clinics listed below in making egg donation treatment finally easily accessible in Australia.
