Brisbane locals now have easy access to City Fertility’s newly opened all-inclusive and state-of-the-art IVF clinic and procedure centre at Newstead in inner-city Brisbane.
The purpose-built multimillion-dollar clinic has been created to meet a growing demand for our fertility services in Brisbane and to provide a new modern option for fertility and IVF with the highest quality personalised patient care.
When I tell people what I do for a living, one of the most common responses is something along the lines of: ‘wow, business must be booming with women leaving it so late these days.’
Trying to start a family in a woman’s late 30’s or early 40’s is hardly a new phenomenon. In fact, 20 years ago the American Society for Reproductive Medicine ran a controversial education campaign with billboards and magazine ads.
Contrary to what we would expect, some women with the most severe endometriosis have been found to conceive naturally and have a good pregnancy, while some with milder cases of the condition struggle to conceive. So while there is often a link established between endometriosis and fertility, it is not always the case.

The start of the Chinese New Year is nearly upon us and begins on 12 February 2021. Babies born during this year will be born in the Year of the Ox.
In Chinese culture, the ox is a highly valued animal and babies born in the sign of the Ox are thought to be calm, fair-minded, dependable, honest and strong. These are all traits that are important to guide us through life.
If you are keen to try and have a baby in the Year of the Ox then here are a few fertility tips to help you on your way.
We have all got our fingers (and toes) crossed that this year will return to some semblance of normal!
If you, like many others have made one of your 2021 resolutions: to start or expand your family, then the City Fertility team are here to help you towards your goal.
Sometimes setting goals though, is much easier than achieving goals, particularly when it comes to getting pregnant – there is no secret it can be a struggle for some.
In these circumstances, sometimes setting smaller goals, like eating well and exercising regularly can be more achievable to start with, than to focus solely on being pregnant straight away. Small goals can often add up very quickly to give your fertility a big boost.
As 2020 draws to a close, in Australia we are all breathing a sigh of relief! It has been a challenging year for all, and for our patients going through fertility treatment, there have been many more curveballs to navigate!
We are so proud of the focus and determination the country has shown to get COVID-19 under control and be the envy of the world, but also for the wonderful attitudes and the resolve of our patients to stay on track in working towards achieving their fertility dreams.
Despite having to change the way many things were done this year, City Fertility has continued to forge ahead.
As City Fertility Sydney CBD celebrates its first birthday milestone, we are also delighted to be celebrating the best of birthday presents – the arrival of the clinic’s first babies!
Baby Sebastian was our first IVF baby born, followed closely by baby Maria and many more babies after that.
Adorable little sisters Skye (3.5 years) and Erin (8 months) are just two of the babies that have helped City Fertility Brisbane reach their 2,000 baby milestone this month. But interestingly, these babies prove again that nobody is immune to fertility issues, with their mother Alison Skuja (40) being a qualified midwife and for the past seven years a fertility nurse at City Fertility Brisbane.
Alison has delivered countless babies for others and assisted many infertile couples, but still struggled herself. She knows an exceptional amount about conception, pregnancy and birth but successfully conceiving can be elusive for even the most experienced.
