Tour of Cape Fertility Clinic

Last week I was in Cape Town to speak at the annual family law conference there.

While I was there, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to meet Dr Klaus Wiswedel, founder of the largest IVF clinic in South Africa, Cape Fertility Clinic. Dr Wiswedel was the first doctor to perform IVF in South Africa, and it is obvious on inspection that the clinic is run to the highest standards.

Cape Fertility is well known to many Australians- as 3 to 4 Australians go there every day. The reason is obvious- aside from the great location and high quality of the centre, South African egg donors are paid- unlike Australian donors. Desperate Australians come to Cape Town in the hope of becoming pregnant- something they believe that they cannot achieve at home.

The clinic is situated in the beautiful suburb of Claremont, Cape Town.

Thank you to Dr Wiswedel, Cape Fertility Clinic, and law firm de Klerk and van Geld for making the visit possible.
