Midsumma Carnival

Happy Midsumma Festival! Welcome to Monash IVF’s virtual stall.

At Monash IVF, we have helped thousands of sexuality and gender diverse people to begin or grow their family. As part of our ongoing commitment to creating culturally safe and affirming environments for sexuality, sex and gender diverse people, we have developed a LGBTIQA+ Diversity and Inclusion strategy and LGBTIQA+ Advisory Committee in collaboration with key LGBTIQA+ community leaders and partner organisations. This strategy involves the development of capacity building programs for our patients and our people, including LGBTIQA+ cultural sensitivity training for all staff across our organisation.

Free fertility nurse chat

If you’d like more information about your fertility or treatment options, Monash IVF offers free phone chats with experienced fertility nurses. You can book a free nurse chat here.

Our fertility nurses are empathetic and knowledgeable. They can answer your questions and provide you with personalised guidance and advice.

Questions you may ask during a nurse chat include:

  • I’m thinking of medically affirming my gender and want to undergo egg/sperm freezing beforehand. Could you explain the process of fertility preservation?
  • My partner and I have a friend who is happy to be our sperm/egg donor. What do we need to do to start this process?
  • My partner and I are ready to start our family but will need a donor/surrogate. How can you help us with this?
  • What is involved in the IVF process?
  • What tests should I get done to assess my fertility?
