Step 6 Come for your treatment to Riga. If you plan to undergo IVF treatment with your partner, we recommend bringing him with you to our clinic. He will be able to provide his semen and, if necessary, we will freeze it and store it in our own secured cryobank, which allows you to use it in the next IVF procedures without the need for your partner to come to Riga again. If you choose to undergo IVF procedure with donor’s sperm, it is not obligatory for your partner to come to Riga. We support your choice to come to the doctor together with your partner or a person you trust!
Step 7 The MAMA RĪGA fertility clinic is located in European Union, and we work in accordance with the Cross-Border Healthcare Directive (CBD).
If you wish to receive a refund for IVF procedure from your national healthcare system, for example, National Health Service (NHS) of United Kingdom, prior to your treatment you will have to receive a confirmation from your national health system confirming the refund.
