A Reputation You Can Trust

The Rotunda Hospital is the world’s oldest maternity hospital and, as co-located with  Rotunda IVF, has cared for generations of families since 1745. Rotunda IVF, which was founded in 1989, has provided many thousands of couples with babies and we will continue to do so for generations to come. Our long-standing legacy has attracted the best doctors, nurses, embryologists, and counsellors to work with Rotunda IVF. We are part of Virtus Health, one of the world’s largest fertility treatment groups.

There have been some big moments since we started, here are some of our achievements.

  • Excellent Pregnancy Rates
  • First baby born from a vitrified embryo
  • First baby born after the use of antagonist (short) protocol
  • We are the National Gamete Centre specialising in fertility preservation for oncology patients

Relationships You Can Rely On

From the moment you arrive at the clinic, everyone in Rotunda IVF takes on the goal of helping you to feel confident and comfortable in our care so that you can conceive a baby. Doctors, Patient Support, Nurses and Administration – all work as a close-knit team – for your benefit.

Our dedicated Patient Support team helps patients to deal with their practical and emotional worries – such as how to communicate with each other under pressure; how to manage work demands during treatment, or how to manage time and financial resources.

Our Patient Support team can help you to overcome concerns and focus on your main goal – creating a new life. Every member of our team follows your progress right through your testing and treatment. We are there to answer questions and give you insights, whenever you need us. Your goal becomes our goal. Find out more about our patient support >
