one stop fertility shop
we’re your partner from the very beginning of your fertility journey. whether it’s advice, answers, or medications, we’re here for everything you need. we offer a full suite of advanced reproductive treatments (a.r.t)
for years, limited supply and high demand has given legacy fertility clinics the green light to raise prices. by increasing the supply of fertility clinics and challenging traditional pricing strategies, mate treatments are up to 40% lower than traditional clinics.
20% of the population experiences some form of infertility. and there are only 450 fertility clinics in the u.s. talk about inconvenience. that’s why we’re opening clinics in real, local, american cities.
mission, not profit driven
our mission is straightforward: to create a simpler way to go from “i want a baby” to “i’m a parent.” and everything we do reflects that. transparent information and pricing, an easy process, and honest explanations from experts. from lowering the cost of ivf to opening clinics just around the block, we’re lowering all the obstacles to starting a family.
mate fertility is located inside the SNP medical complex and provides complimentary parking for all guests in front of the building.
