Fertility treatment in same-sex couples

Amendment of the Reproductive Medicine Act

We’re ready to help fulfill your dreams of having children with the help of the latest state-of- the-art technology!

The latest changes in the Reproductive Medicine Act opened a new world of possibilities primarily in the fields of preimplantation diagnostics—a field in which we cooperate with the renowned geneticist Univ.- Prof. Mag. Dr. Markus Hengstschläger—and also made it possible for two women who live together to fulfill their desire for children in a partnership.

Our team is happy to assist and provide you with further information anytime.

"The amendment to the Reproductive Medicine Act has brought Austrian law onto a European level. Many patients who previously had to seek fertility treatment abroad, as the medical indications for treatment were clear yet not legally permitted in Austria / fell into a kind of gray-zone, can now also be treated in Austria".

Univ.- Prof. Dr. Wilfried Feichtinger / Head of the Wunschbaby Institute Feichtinger

I was very satisfied with the treatment. The team is always striving to do their best. The waits are short. We felt very well taken care of.

Relaxing Atmosphere: An Institute with a relaxing atmosphere, very friendly, compassionate care. Highly recommend.

I would highly recommend this Institute to everyone: you don’t feel like a patient, all the employees are engaged and are excited for you. It’s a great feeling to receive so much support.

My doctor provided excellent guidance from our first meeting until successful pregnancy. I was able to call her at all hours of the day, and if I couldn’t reach her per phone, then I could always send her an E-mail.
