Welcome to Fertility PLUS
Fertility PLUS provides a comprehensive range of fertility investigations and treatment. We were New Zealand’s first established IVF clinic and have been at the forefront of fertility treatment for more than 25 years. Fertility PLUS has helped thousands of couples fulfil their hopes of starting a family.
Our services are integrated with the general gynaecology, maternity and medical services at National Women’s Health, ensuring that we can support all aspects of your fertility treatment and ongoing care. We are proud of our IVF success rate, which has consistently put us in the top quartile for clinics in Australia and New Zealand. Our academic record includes numerous publications and research projects assessing and developing new treatments.
Fertility PLUS provides both publicly funded and private fertility treatment. If you are not eligible for funded treatment, you can access private fertility treatment with us. See eligibility criteria for publicly funded treatment.
Our experienced team of doctors, nurses, scientists and counsellors will assist you in every way possible to ensure you have a positive experience under our care.

Fertility Fitness advice:
There is growing evidence of the impact of lifestyle factors on both female and male fertility.
For men and women:
- Avoid smoking
- Avoid alcohol- consume only 1-2 units per week and none during fertility treatment cycles
- Avoid excess caffeine- more than one strong coffee per day is probably too much
- Attain a healthy weight- BMI 19 to 25 ideally, but certainly below 32
- Undertake sensible levels of exercise
- Avoid recreational drugs
- Eat a healthly balanced diet
- Find a way of best managing any stresses in your life
- If possible do not “delay” trying to achieve a pregnancy- the age of the woman is particularly important .
For women hoping to become pregnant, it is advisable to take folic acid and iodine supplements for 3 months before a pregnancy.
