No. 1 Fertility is in the business of making little “miracles” every day
Driven by a love of family and a commitment to help others achieve their dream of pregnancy, the Melbourne-based boutique fertility clinic has stepped away from the traditional “clinical” surrounds towards a plush, comforting retreat akin to a day spa.
Surrounded by state-of-the-art technology and science, and led by Dr Lynn Burmeister, who has worked in obstetrics and fertility for more than 20 years, No. 1 Fertility provides a holistic service and strives to give the best patient care and fertility treatment at an affordable price.
The clinic offers low-cost egg freezing, IVF services including a donor and surrogacy program, and in-house ancillary services such as acupuncture.
Dr Burmeister, who has treated tens of thousands of women, said pre-conception health was paramount to the best chances of success, so No. 1 Fertility put a strong emphasis on the combination of wellness, science and a holistic approach to help patients achieve a healthy pregnancy.
“If you’re trying to fall pregnant, or you’re having difficulty conceiving, there are a number of things both men and women can do to improve your chances of success,” Dr Burmeister said.
I look at the whole person and the whole picture. I take a detailed history of their diet and exercise routines and make sure these aren’t reasons as to why they are not conceiving.
“I’m a firm believer that if we work on overall health first – and we have a healthy egg and healthy sperm – we are going to have the best chance of a successful pregnancy.”
Dr Burmeister said the maternal age had changed during the past 40 years with more women becoming mothers later in life.
“Women are born with a finite number of eggs, usually between one and two million. By puberty, they have around 400,000 eggs and by 30, there’s 100,000 to 150,000 eggs in reserve. By 35, that number is around 80,000.
“At the age of 40 there is only a four per cent chance of conceiving naturally.
“We understand this and the pressures on women with the ‘so-called’ ticking of their biological clocks so offer affordable egg freezing options to empower them to make decisions about their fertility.”
No.1 Fertility has clinics in East Melbourne and Melbourne’s CBD. •
