Bourn Hall provides both NHS IVF treatment and self-funded treatment. NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) recommends that three cycles of IVF provide the optimum level of treatment.
To help our patients gain the treatment they need – where it is not available from the NHS – Bourn Hall offers flexible payment options via Access Fertility.
We also have a number of programmes, such as egg sharing and sperm donation, where eligible couples are given free treatment.

What are the IVF waiting times in Cambridge?
Bourn Hall offers short IVF waiting times for NHS funded treatment.
Kelly's journey to parenthood took seven years, including 2 years being treated for PCOS with metformin to stimulate her ovaries. After being referred for IVF she was delighted to fall pregnant with Dexter. But the story doesn't end there.
When Dexter was 3 months old, she felt unwell and against the odds found she was pregnant with a little girl. Happy birthday Dexter and also to the other little miracle who also has a birthday about now.
Kelly writes: A happy 6th birthday to my baby boy Dexter. Another year I’m so thankful for all the wonderful Drs and nurses at Bourn Hall x
It is easy to put off getting your sperm tested, but this is quick and non-invasive and can immediately tell you if there is an underlying reason for infertility.
For example one in 25 white Europeans are carriers of the cystic fibrosis gene but may be unaware until they get a zero sperm test. Kirsten Elmes is so glad her husband got checked out.
She writes: "Just wanted to show you how my beautiful little girl is growing up and making me proud every day! Thanks to the ICSI treatment in June 2003 I have Saffron (the most expensive spice in the world) who was born in April 2004. Every day I am blessed.
My husband was born with a genetic disorder with absent vas deferens. Thank you Kirsten xxx

This route to parenthood is not just an option for celebrities, ordinary people for whom carrying a pregnancy is not possible or a risk to their health have chosen this path.The egg and sperm come from the parents and resulting embryo is transferred to a wonderful individual who is prepared to be a surrogate. This person is often someone who is known to the couple. Bourn Hall was the first clinic to offer surrogacy.
