The Fertility Home

Your IVF Journey at TFH

Creating New Beginnings Together

In the journey of IVF, when egg meets sperm, they unite to form an embryo. 

We carefully nurture this new beginning in our lab, allowing it to grow and reach just the right stage of development, typically within five days. At this point, we also have the unique opportunity to conduct advanced genetic testing to ensure the embryo’s health prior to implantation

Then, with everything just right, we can either gently reintroduce the embryo to continue its journey towards birth or preserve it for a future moment.
