Center for Reproductive Medicine

Dear fertility patients,

you’ve been trying for a baby, so far without success. You are now considering asking for some advice and help in order to fulfil your dream of having a baby.

A thorough investigation of the reasons for fertility problems often reveals that only fairly minor steps are necessary to produce a happy outcome. Many couples who would previously have remained childless can nowadays be helped with modern techniques.
Fertility treatment has made great progress in the last 25 years. Help has been available in Germany for couples having difficulty conceiving since 1983. The first centres achieving success in such treatments were the university clinics of Erlangen und Kiel.

I personally have been involved in both research and clinical practice of artificial insemination since 1984. In 1993 I started undertaking operative sterility therapy as attending doctor in the Staatsrat-von-Fetzer clinic in Stuttgart. We have been offering all modern diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for male and female infertility in our parenting clinic since 1996. In 2003 we moved here into the Villa Haag.

We have a wide range of contacts and cooperative arrangements with other practioners and clinics with expertise in less frequent specialisms. This allows us to offer the full breadth of treatments and identify the best option for your individual circumstances. We will listen to your problems, answer your questions, discuss alternatives, and support you in your decisions. Fertility treatment can be an emotional time, with high hopes alternating with stressful periods. Our practice team will accompany you throughout the period of diagnosis and treatment: we are happy to offer you advice and assistance at every stage.

We thank you for your trust and assure you of our commitment to give you every opportunity to fulfil your dream of having your own baby.

Our motto:

As natural as possible – as much help as necessary.
With best regards

Dr. Mayer-Eichberger, MD
and his support team for prospective parents
