About Barbados Fertility Centre

The Barbados Fertility Centre embraces diversity and inclusivity, extending its services to women up to 49, single women, and same-sex couples seeking to conceive or expand their families. With a track record of assisting numerous individuals and couples in realizing their dreams of parenthood, the clinic offers a comprehensive array of fertility treatments, including:

  • UI/AID
  • Egg donation
  • Embryo donation
  • Donor sperm
  • PGT-A
  • Assisted Hatching
  • Egg and sperm freezing
  • Embryo freezing
  • Ovulation Induction (OI)
  • Immunology Program

To ensure thorough pre-cycle evaluations, the clinic provides tests for both women and men. For women, diagnostic procedures such as HyCoSy (Hysterosalpingo Contrast Sonography) assess the condition of the fallopian tubes with enhanced detail, offering valuable insights not easily obtained through standard imaging methods.

The Barbados Fertility Centre stands as a beacon of progressiveness and innovation, dedicated to offering all patients, regardless of marital status or sexual orientation, the best chance of achieving parenthood. With a longstanding commitment to single women pursuing family-building through IUI or IVF with donor sperm, the clinic warmly welcomes same-sex couples. These couples can explore options such as artificial insemination with donor sperm or ROPA (Reciprocal IVF), where one partner’s eggs are used to create embryos implanted into the other partner’s womb, establishing a unique parental dynamic. Additionally, the clinic offers a surrogacy program tailored to the reproductive needs of gay or single men.

Understanding the unique challenges and considerations faced by same-sex couples, the Barbados Fertility Centre recognizes the need for specialized support beyond medical treatment. Financial, legal, and emotional aspects are addressed with specific attention and expertise to guide couples through their fertility journey with care and understanding.
