Melbourne IVF has a long-standing relationship with The Royal Women’s Hospital in Parkville, providing fertility treatment services through the Reproductive Services Unit.
Some of the Melbourne IVF founding members, the late Ian Johnston and current Melbourne IVF Director, A/Prof John McBain, AO were part of the original team at the Women’s Hospital involved in the conception and birth of Candice Reed, Australia’s first IVF baby in 1980.
When undergoing IVF treatment at Reproductive Services, your treatment will be performed and managed by the Melbourne IVF fertility specialist or registrar rostered for that day.
