Midland Fertility has confirmed the highest success rates in its 27 year history, for the first month after the clinic’s relocation to Tamworth in September this year.

During October 2014, the clinical pregnancy rate at Midland Fertility for IVF for women under 35 years was 63.6% per cycle started, compared to the national average of 33.7%* per cycle started.  The rate for women aged 35 to 37 years was 66.7% per cycle started, compared to the national average of 31.4%* per cycle started.

“We are absolutely delighted with the results from the first full month of treatments delivered in October at our brand new state-of-the-art clinical suite and laboratories at Midland Fertility’s new location in Tamworth,” said Dr Gillian Lockwood, medical director.

“The significant increase in pregnancy rates means that many patients and health care commissioners are already benefiting from our relocation and are enjoying glad tidings of longed-for pregnancies just before Christmas.

“November’s success rates are also looking very good, which is all part of Midland Fertility’s mission of ‘building futures, transforming lives’.”

Midland Fertility is the West Midlands’ longest established fertility clinic and at the end of this significant year in its history, can also confirm that 240 babies were born in the 12 month period of November 2013 to October 2014, following treatment at the unit. This includes the latest milestone birth, ‘Baby 6,000’ who was born in August 2014.
