September 2016 AVA-Peter turned 20 years old! Happy Birthday, Dear Clinic!

How to start?

Welcome to AVA-Peter and congratulations on taking the first step to becoming a mother! As a single woman you will have thought long and hard about the choice to move forward in creating your family, the steps that you will need to take to achieve this and the best clinic to meet your needs. At AVA-Peter we are sure that we can make your dreams of motherhood come true and fully support you on your exciting new journey ahead.

The first step on your journey to success is to make contact with one of our highly experienced and supportive patient coordinators, at AVA-Peter we are very proud to have coordinators based not only in St Petersburg, but also Norway, Sweden and the UK so as to meet all your personal needs and preferences of language and time zones. Our coordinators are confident in spoken and written Russian, English, French and German so from you first point of contact you will be allocated a personal coordinator that meets these preferences and will stay with you throughout your programme of care.

Your experienced, personal coordinator will talk through your treatment options with you and help you to obtain all of the information that you will need to help you make an informed decision about the next step, they will be on hand at all times to assist you with all aspects of your care, including travel support. You will also be asked to tell us when you would like to visit us in St Petersburg and carry out your treatment so that we can design a programme that is purely personal to your needs and your preferred time of travel.

There are no questions that are too small for me. I am here to discuss them with you

As a single woman you are already aware that you will need sperm donation to create your much wanted pregnancy and baby. However, you may be unsure as to how to choose your sperm donor and from which place? If so your personal coordinator and doctor will help you with this important and personal decision!

At AVA Peter we are proud to be able to offer you a donor with a basic profile from our own sperm donor database. Within the basic profile you will receive the following information about a sperm donor: age, blood group, height, weight, eye and hair colour. If however you would prefer to use an open sperm donor, choose your own donor and gain in-depth information and profiles of the donor we are more than happy to recommend European Sperm Bank and help you with the choice and sperm transportation to our clinic.

If you would like to find out more about different sperm donor options and how we can use this to meet your own personal needs please contact us for a free non obliging telephone consultation.

Your first consultation

Our ultimate goal is a baby in your arms in the shortest time, but also to provide this in the most comfortable and effective manner. To make this all possible we need to find out your detailed medical history and understand your own personal needs. We would like to find out this information through an initial consultation with your assigned AVA-Peter doctor. You will be assigned this personal doctor and nurse along with your coordinator who will stay with you throughout your treatment and into pregnancy. The initial consultation is also of great importance to diagnose any underlying problems that may possibly reduce your chances of success. Our primary task is to help you solve them efficiently so that you can progress to a successful treatment cycle as soon as possible. 

There are two options for you to choose from to enable us to do this:

  • Your first telephone/Skype consultation with us 
  • Your first personal consultation with us in St. Petersburg (visa required)
