Merrion Fertility Clinic is closely associated with the National Maternity Hospital at Holles Street and this is one of our defining features. The Board of MFC includes the Master and other Consultants and representatives of the Hospital.
MFC doctors also work as Consultant Obstetrician Gynaecologists at the Hospital and that gives us immediate and complete access to the expertise and facilities of this tertiary care, academic teaching hospital, one of the largest maternity hospitals in Europe.
Dr Wingfield, Dr Martyn and Dr Spillane have public fertility clinics at the NMH and Dr Allen runs the recurrent miscarriage clinic. Dr Allen and Dr Martyn also provide pregnancy care. All doctors operate at the NMH and also at St Michael’s Hospital in Dun Laoghaire where they provide laparoscopic, hysteroscopic and open surgery for conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids, tubal disease, polyps and adhesions.
Consultant Anaesthetists from the NMH provide sedation at MFC for egg collections, testicular biopsies etc and we also benefit from a range of other experts at the hospital – high risk pregnancy, radiology, endocrinology, haematology, microbiology and psychiatry to mention but a few. Once pregnant, our patients have the option of continuing their pregnancy care at the hospital.
