Fertility Belgium

Useful tips

Of course you can't get far on your own, so we try to create the best possible partnerships for the fertility centre within our vision of always offering our patients the best treatments, both now and in the future. Of course a fertility centre is never private but always connected to an accredited hospital, in our case Jan Palfijn General Hospital in Ghent. The fertility centre at Jan Palfijn General Hospital functions as a reference centre for the hospitals Maria Middelares General Hospital in Ghent, Onze-Lieve-Vrouwziekenhuis in Aalst and Sint-Augustinus General Hospital in Antwerp.

Donor bank

The IVF centre has a sperm bank where sperm cells from anonymous donors are stored until they can be used for a fertility treatment. Any man aged between 18 and 35 may be eligible for sperm donation. You will find all the necessary information about this on our website, ikhelpmee.be, and if you are interested you can make an appointment directly.


For our countless foreign patients, incidentally, we also work closely with the company Betamedics, an enthusiastic young business that - if you wish and on an entirely voluntary basis - can deal with all the non-medical arrangements from A to Z for foreign patients. You will find more information in the section for foreign patients, and you can also contact Betamedics directly yourself.
