Fertility and Reproductive Health

Stanford Medicine - Fertility and Reproductive Health Logo

You may think that infertility is extremely rare but in fact, 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. For individuals or couples like you/yours, Stanford Medicine’s Fertility and Reproductive Health Services is proud to offer one of the most comprehensive and progressive treatment programs in the country. By integrating innovative technology into treatment options and offering a wide array of on-site services, including reproductive surgery, we are able to provide you with leading-edge care that can transform your family.

The Stanford Medicine Fertility and Reproductive Health Services team 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 team of physicians includes American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology certified specialists, research leaders in the field, and faculty members at Stanford School of Medicine with extensive clinical experience treating infertility.

As one of the specialty services provided by the Johnson Center for Pregnancy and Newborn Services at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, 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 (before birth), obstetric, labor and delivery, and newborn care. With fertility services as part of this range of services, you can benefit from a smooth transition from fertility care to obstetrics, newborn, and pediatric care. We also provide mental health services, including individual, couple, and group counseling from a mental health clinician to help you cope with the challenges that infertility and family-building can bring.
