Every patient story is unique and heart-warming, but here are a few we’re especially proud of...
1984: Alana, Queensland’s first IVF baby, was born. At the time, her chance of being conceived was just 5% per IVF cycle.
1986: Jaclyn, Queensland’s first baby conceived with a frozen embryo, was born. At that time, excess embryos were discarded, but now embryo freezing accounts for about 40% of our procedures.
2010: Charley was born, the first Australian baby born to a mother who was herself conceived through IVF. Charley was conceived and delivered naturally, indicating fertility problems are not always hereditary. Both Charley and his mother, Megan, were delivered by QFG Obstetrician Dr Doug Keeping, 26 years apart.
2010: Sophie was the 500th baby conceived through IVF in Cairns. We have pioneered the expansion of fertility services into Queensland’s regional areas – without which many couples in Far North Queensland simply wouldn’t have the chance to start their family unless they were prepared to travel frequently to Brisbane.
