Merrion Fertility Clinic was established in 1998 by Prof Mary Wingfield and other fellow Doctors at the National Maternity Hospital, Dublin.
Since then the clinic has gained a reputation as a leading IVF clinic in Ireland, providing treatment cycles for hundreds of couples every year and achieving pregnancy rates above the internationally recognised norms.


Merrion Fertility Clinic is unique in that our close links with the National Maternity Hospital ensure that our patients have the full support services of a respected maternity hospital. Merrion Fertility Clinic Doctors are also staff of the hospital and can provide surgery and pregnancy care if required.


As a non-profit making charitable organization, any profits are reinvested back into improving clinic services and facilities.


Your partner in fertility… Every step of the way.



Professor Mary Wingfield, Clinical Director, explains MFC’s relationship with the National Maternity Hospital and its Not-for-Profit status.
