Through our In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Program, couples receive support, information, and counseling as well as the latest technological procedures and advanced treatment. One of the most well-known fertility treatments, IVF is the process of combining sperm and egg in a lab to create a viable embryo that can then be transferred to the mother's uterus.

The Yale IVF Program started in 1982, and in 1983, the first Yale IVF baby was born to a couple who shared in our role as forerunners in the evolving field of assisted reproductive technology (ART). We are among the first institutions in the Northeast to have an IVF program and have become a recognized leader in the field.
