Concept Fertility - The Most Precious Gift of All
We are committed to the pursuit of excellence in all our services
To our valued clients
It is with regret, that due to the COVID-19, we have today been advised that we need to cancel all Inter uterine Inseminations (including artificial donor insemination) effective immediately. This order has come through from the Reproductive Technology Accreditation Committee (RTAC) just now. Whilst we have tried to continue with these services unfortunately we are required to act on this direction.
We empathise with how difficult this news will be for some of our clients so we would like to ensure you know we are still here to help whether it be a phone call with our nurses, patient coordinator or our counselling team. We are open our normal Public Holiday/Weekend hours over this Easter Break if you have any questions or concerns.
Our counselling team, Iolanda Rodino and Antonia Clissa, are available for online appointments to assist in these difficult times. Please contact Concept reception 9382 2388 and one of our friendly team will be happy to arrange this for you.
Take Care, keep safe

COVID-19 ENTRY SCREENING
EFFECTIVE TUESDAY 24TH MARCH 2020
To our valued patients and support personnel,
Here at Concept Fertility Centre, our number one priority is the health, safety and well-being of our patients, visitors and staff. As a privately owned healthcare facility offering healthcare services to the community, we are facing many challenges with regard to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Concept Fertility has had to further assess its practices and entry restrictions to ensure we can better protect our patients and the larger community during this difficult time.
Entry Restrictions for Concept Fertility Centre
Patients will be unable to access Concept Fertility in the following circumstances:
1) If you have traveled from overseas into Australia in the last 14 days effective Tuesday 24th March 2020
2) If you have had contact with any person (relative, friend, colleague) who has recently arrived into WESTERN AUSTRALIA from overseas or interstate
3) They have been in close contact with a proven case of COVID-19
4) They have been in close contact with a person awaiting results from a test for COVID-19
5) Present to Concept with signs of a fever ( 37.5 degrees), cough or cold.
Upon entering Concept you will be greeted by a Triage Nurse who will ask all persons to complete a screening questionnaire. Your temperature will be taken if you meet the entry requirements. If you answer YES to any of the questions, it is with regret, we will not be able to allow you entry into Concept.
We understand the impact, both physically and emotionally, these restrictions may have on our patients, however, we all have a social responsibility to assist in slowing the spread of the COVID-19.
Please understand your health and safety, as a patient undergoing treatment at Concept, will not be compromised.
The Concept team is happy to answer questions you may have so please contact us, 9383 2388.
This website and our Facebook page will be updated if changes occur.
I sincerely thank you for your understanding and assistance during such challenging times.

Coronavirus Infection – COVID-19 and Pregnancy
You will be aware of the current outbreak of Coronavirus. Most people infected will have mild disease including women of reproductive age but infections can be severe and even deadly. At this time we have an extremely limited understanding of this infection in pregnancy.
Current information is based on experience from past coronavirus illnesses (SARS in 2002 and MERS in 2012) and data from pregnant women who have had an infection with COVID-19.
- Pregnant women do not appear to be more susceptible to infection with COVID-19.
- It must be stressed that it is unknown if pregnancy can increase the severity of COVID-19 infection.
- No evidence of transmission from mother to baby during pregnancy was seen with SARS or MERS infections. This appears to be the same for COVID-19.
- It is unknown whether COVID-19 can be transmitted through breast milk.
During pregnancy close attention to measures to reduce the risk of acquiring this infection must be followed.
Pregnant women will be strongly advised to have vaccination when this becomes available. Vaccination for the annual influenza virus is also recommended in pregnancy if not already administered.
Where possible pregnant women should avoid crowds and consider working from home. Avoid overseas travel and reconsider the need for interstate travel where ever possible.
Guidance may change as the outbreak spreads. Keep informed.
The following basic measures are recommended for all people to follow:
- Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds. Soap and water is best but when not possible hand sanitizer will suffice.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw in a bin.
- Cough or sneeze into your elbow if no tissue
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Contact a health professional if you have symptoms of Covid-19. The most common are fever and a dry cough.
- DON’T touch your face.
- DON’T travel if you have a fever and cough.
- DON’T wear a face mask if you are well.

We research specific fields of Assisted Reproduction in order to further the opportunities for infertile couples.
