A little more info…


The cost of the program is about 1.5-2x the fee for a single IVF cycle. The idea is that if you end up getting pregnant the first time, you will have paid a bit more than you needed to. A small price to pay for having a baby and enjoying the peace of mind that you were able to afford treatment for your baby.

Patients that need two IVF treatment will enjoy some savings compared to purchasing two individual IVF cycles. Patients that need three or more treatments can move forward with the confidence that you saved a lot! These families know that they have access to all the care that they need without worries about expenses.

Reach out to schedule a Mate Advisor Session to learn more about the unique approach we take to fertility care. We look forward to caring for you.

Dr. Steinleitner has gotten over 4,000 patients pregnant…and we can’t wait to help you next.

Dr. Alex Steinleitner


Dr. Steinleitner has been caring for infertile families for over 30 years. He is a fellowship trained Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility Specialist. He received his medical degree from the University of California, San Diego and completed his fellowship at the University of Southern California School of Medicine.

When in his research career, Dr. Steinleitner was recognized by his peers and awarded prizes for his excellent research papers submitted to the American Gynecological and Obstetrical Society, the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society, American Fertility Society, and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. Steinleitner learned the true value of the work he does each day after raising his two college-aged daughters. Above any experience in life, being a father has taught him the most about the joy of adding a child to a family. Dr. Steinleitner believes that access to advanced infertility care is a matter of social justice, that’s why we make it our mission to make that care available to the widest range of families possible.

what fertility services are offered near san luis obispo?

we have a full service fertility clinic in san luis obispo. services we offer: fertility assessments that includes an initial consult with your physician and all pre-treatment testing, iui, ivf, pgt-a (genetic screening), donor sperm, donor eggs, surrogacy, and egg freezing. we treat all families, individuals, and couples and pride ourselves on being inclusive to all.

do we offer ivf in-vitro fertilization near san luis obispo?

yes, ivf or in-vitro fertilization is the gold standard for infertility treatment. ivf means fertilization outside the body, or in our case, the lab. if you choose ivf as your treatment you can expect the first 8-12 days of treatment to be what’s called stimulation. during this period you’ll be taking a combination of medications (some injectables) to help stimulate your ovaries to produce as many eggs as possible. once those eggs are looking mature, you’ll get a trigger shot. 36 hours later you will come into the clinic for your egg retrieval. you’ll be asleep for this procedure so you won’t feel a thing, but your physician will retrieve as many eggs as possible. those eggs will then go directly into the lab along with the sperm provided and our embryologist will fertilize your eggs. about 5-6 days later we will monitor the development of those eggs and hope for healthy looking mature embryos. we will then freeze your embryos and once you’re ready, we will transfer one embryo into your uterus. 2 weeks later you’ll get a pregnancy test in the clinic.

how many offices are part of the slo rei network?

currently we have 2 clinics as part of our mate fertility network, but you can expect that number to increase soon. our 2 mate network clinics are located in san luis obispo and fresno. we’re so thrilled to be serving central california and can’t wait to help thousands of families achieve their dreams of having children!
