We guarantee you a baby this spring!

How to start?

Our ultimate goal is your much desired baby in your arms in the shortest possible time, but also to provide this in the most comfortable and effective manner. As you may already have small children it will be important to you that we design a programme that not only meets your medical needs, but also those of your family! You may need to arrange childcare, split your time at the clinic, or indeed reduce the time that your partner is in St Petersburg - we will be able to help you with this with our full travel support! After your time with us however you will not need to take any sick leave, be unwell or be unable to resume your normal daily activities!

To make this all possible for you we first need to find out about your past pregnancies and also medical history (obstetrical history and also ovarian reserve) so as to be able to select the best medication scheme for growing your eggs – we do this ‘information finding’ process through an initial consultation with one of our AVA-Peter doctor, personally assigned to you.

There are two options for you to choose from to enable us to carry out your initial consultation:

  1. Your first personal consultation with our doctors in St Petersburg, London, Stockholm or Oslo
  1. Your first telephone/Skype consultation with us 

Your first personal consultation with us in St Petersburg:

  • Meet your assigned personal Doctor - Dr Olga Zaytseff and also your nurse Ekaterina and personal coordinator.
  • Collecting your medical history and carrying out laboratory tests (if required) so as to make the most efficient, successful and individual treatment plan.
  • Discuss your own individual and personal needs so that we can ensure that we offer you the most comfortable, stress free treatment that holds these as priority!
  • Sperm freezing, if necessary, so as to make your return visit as convenient as possible for both you and your family.

Your first telephone/Skype consultation with us:

  • Collecting your medical history and arranging for tests to be carried out by your local doctor (if required) so as to make the most efficient, successful and individual treatment plan.
  • Discuss your own individual and personal needs so that we can ensure that we offer you the most comfortable, stress free treatment that holds these as priority!
  • We will need the assistance of a local Doctor so that they can carry provide your medication, carry out your scans and laboratory tests that will give us the complete picture and get you ready for your visit to us! (we are happy if you use your own Doctor, if you do not have a Doctor that is able to do this for you we are more than happy to arrange contact with one of our local colleagues)
