Today's results demonstrate that leading fertility clinics continue to offer real hope to the 1 in 6 Australian couples who need fertility assistance. Australia continues to lead the way – having the lowest regional rate of multiple birth deliveries in the world following IVF treatment because we continue to routinely only transfer a single embryo transfer.
On Sunday November 6th, Hunter IVF hosted its ninth annual Family Day at its New Lambton Heights clinic.
