Fertility and Reproductive Health

Recent studies reveal that as many as 15% of couples in the U.S. are considered infertile — that is, they are unable to conceive a child after one year of unprotected intercourse.

While infertility may have complicated, sometimes multiple physical causes, it can also exact an emotional toll. Couples having difficulty conceiving a child can now look to us for one of the nation's most comprehensive and progressive treatment programs.

For three decades, Stanford Medicine’s Fertility and Reproductive Health team has provided comprehensive, caring services to patients who want to expand their families. Now, this team offers a close new tie to Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, the hospital that delivers many of their patients’ babies following successful fertility treatment.

As one of the specialty services provided by the Johnson Center for Pregnancy and Newborn Services at Packard Children’s, Fertility and Reproductive Health is instrumental in giving mom and baby the strongest possible start. Packard Children’s is the home of world-class prenatal, obstetric, labor and delivery, and newborn care. With fertility services as part of that continuum of care, patients and families benefit from a smooth transition from fertility care to obstetrics, neonatal and pediatric care.

The Stanford Medicine Fertility and Reproductive Health team offers expert evaluation and leading-edge treatment options with a personal and caring touch. Our staff includes some of the country’s leading embryologists, reproductive endocrinologists, clinical nurses and technicians who will work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your emotional and lifestyle needs. Our physicians work with you to individualize the predicted chances of IVF success based on your unique situation.
