The Short Version: Barbados Fertility Centre (BFC) has taken a unique approach to fertility treatment by setting up a clinic in the middle of a tropical paradise. BFC welcomes international patients from the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and other countries, and it provides personalized care within walking distance of the beach. Couples can celebrate a relationship milestone and get one step closer to starting a family with the help of the BFC team.

Barbados Fertility Centre has combined the personalized care of a small clinic with the relaxing atmosphere of a tropic retreat, and the result has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience for singles and couples with fertility concerns.

Struggling to conceive a child can put a strain on a relationship. Some couples have found it helps to escape everyday life and head to Barbados for an affordable treatment plan wrapped up in a Caribbean vacation.

Barbados Fertility Centre has supported thousands of pregnancies for patients around the world.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is one of the most common treatments sought by patients at BFC. It takes about five days to complete the treatment regimen, so couples can get out and see Barbados in between their appointments. The clinic offers acupuncture and yoga to help patients destress.

When the BFC opened in 2002, it was the first full-time fertility unit in the Caribbean. The affordable rates and tropical rates attracted patients from around the world. The clinic’s fertility treatments and healthcare services led to many firsts for the area, including the first IVF baby born in Barbados and the first baby born from embryo adoption in the Caribbean.

The BFC team is enthusiastic and supportive throughout the IVF process and can answer any questions couples have along the way.

“Since 2002, Barbados Fertility Center has been helping infertile couples from around the world achieve their dream of having a child,” the team said. “This island paradise offers more than just the peaceful and stress-free environment that couples need when undergoing IVF treatment.”

Promising a Stress-Free Experience With Personalized Care

Barbados Fertility Centre has the distinction of being the only IVF clinic in the Caribbean that has been accredited by the Joint Commission International. The JCI is a U.S.-based accreditation body that ensures fertility clinics operate with the utmost safety and care.

Over the last two decades, the BFC team has maintained a solid international reputation by remaining focused compassionate care for individuals and couples who want to start a family.

American couples comprised about half of BFC patients within the last year.

Barbados Fertility Centre welcomes couples from all walks of life. The team is proud to serve future parents in the LGBTQ+ community and provide fertility solutions that ensure women can have a family when they are ready.

When it comes to finances, the international clinic is surprisingly affordable. Barbados Fertility Centre’s IVF treatment can be the same cost or cheaper than domestic treatment, and it offers a vacation to Barbados as part of the experience. This appeals to American couples who are frustrated with the healthcare system at home and want to treat themselves to a more personalized and luxury experience.

“Our goal is to ensure every single couple gets affordable, high-quality fertility care in one of the world’s most beautiful Caribbean island,” the BFC team said. “We even help coordinate your flight, travel arrangements and accommodation.”

Couples can go on a relationship retreat and solve their pregnancy worries in one go thanks to the hard work and expertise of Barbados Fertility Centre.

Boasting 67% Success for IVF & 75% Success for Egg Donations

Infertility can be a daunting and heart-wrenching problem, and sometimes impersonal and expensive health care options only make it all the more painful for patients. Barbados Fertility Centre stands out because it provides quality care in a tropical atmosphere — and for an affordable price. That takes the pressure off people in relationships and allows them to focus on their goal of having a baby.

The BFC team has seen a lot of success in the fertility space. The clinic celebrated its 2,000th baby being born in 2018. Overall its success rate for IVF patients is about 67%, and the success rate for egg donations is 75%. To put that in perspective, WebMD estimates the odds of a successful IVF pregnancy at between 11.5% and 39.6%, depending upon the woman’s age.

Of course, BFC’s success isn’t just measured in numbers. It can be seen in the smiles of suntanned patients and in the baby announcements coming in from all over the world.

Barbados Fertility Centre proudly promotes dozens of testimonials from couples who have gotten everything they wanted and more from the fertility treatment.

Angell and Sean had gone through five failed intrauterine inseminations (IUIs) in the United States before landing on Barbados Fertility Centre as their fertility solution. The couple went through IVF treatment at the Barbados Fertility Centre in May 2019, and they said the experience was so moving that they wanted to move to Barbados to raise their growing family.

Many patients say in Facebook reviews that they felt at home in Barbados because the team took such good care of them. Some couples use treatment at BFC as an opportunity to go on a honeymoon or babymoon

“BFC is so special for so many reasons. The staff truly care about their patients and welcome you like family,” said Kelly M., who is a registered nurse in the U.S. “They made our dreams come true after so many years! Life changing experience.”

Mai-Lynn received IVF treatments in her home country of Canada and realized she needed to travel farther to get the results she desired. She wanted more personal care and reasonably priced treatment, and that’s what she found at Barbados Fertility Centre.

“The treatment that we received was above and beyond our expectations,” Mai-Lynn said. “It was an overall warm, caring, and sincere experience.”

As a result of her treatment in Barbados, Mai-Lynn got pregnant and gave birth to healthy twin boys. Unsurprisingly, she has nothing but good things to say about the BFC team.

Barbados IVF Has Resulted in Thousands of Births

Couples can now enjoy a more relaxed and luxury way to seek fertility treatment thanks to Barbados Fertility Centre. This clinic has invited people with fertility struggles to skip the wait lines and lower the cost of treatment, while getting a fun vacation out of the deal. Contact the team for a free consultation to learn more about the international healthcare experience and payment options.

Barbados Fertility Centre has thousands of success stories to its name. Every time the team receives a photo of a sonogram or a newborn baby from a former patient, it serves as a heartwarming reminder of BFC’s meaningful impact on families around the world.

Whether you’re in a relationship, married, or single, Barbados Fertility Centre takes your family goals seriously and provides accessible treatment options ranging from egg freezing to in vitro fertilization.

“Infertility can be a stressful time for couples, and many studies reflect the negative impact this can have on success,” the BFC team said. “Our personalized approach ensures that every couple receives comprehensive advice and an evaluation, a world-class IVF program and a dedicated medical team. The result is our high success rate in helping couples realize their dream of having a baby!”
