IVF and ICSI without surprises

With a budget-friendly approach that sets us apart, we are proud to offer you world-class expertise and the best value in our field that brings your dream of parenthood within financial reach.

The majority of our services are bulk-billed, offering you significant savings because the entire cost of those services is bulk-billed to Medicare. We also keep out-of-pocket expenses to a minimum, bringing your dream of having a baby closer to reality.

At First Step Fertility, we don’t charge a Registration Fee for standard IVF services.  If your IVF cycle results in a number of excess embryos, we also offer complimentary storage fees for the first 6 months at no cost.

The NSW Government has introduced a Pre-IVF Testing Rebate for residents to cover the costs of fertility testing. Those eligible can apply for a one time rebate for out-of-pocket costs.

Note: For applications made after 1 January 2023, the rebate amount is $250, regardless of when you undertook the tests.

To check if you are eligible and begin your application, you can find more information on the Service NSW website.

Information for VIC patients: Pre-IVF Mandatory counselling

If you’re based in Victoria, patients receiving treatment will also need to attend a mandatory counselling session appointment prior to commencing treatment.  Both patient and partner will need to attend the counselling session.  Please contact the counsellors directly to arrange an appointment:

Please note that a fee will be payable to the counsellor on the day of your appointment.  Please ask the counsellor for an estimate of their fees.
