Indira IVF restarts its fertility treatment services in 89 clinics with all precautionary measures
In March, the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority (HFEA) ordered to pause the IVF treatment procedures in UK. After the massive Coronavirus hits, IVF clinics were asked to postpone its services amidst the lockdown. There has been too much fear about the patients contracting the virus and they are taking all the measures to curb it. Recently, European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology, The American Society for Reproductive Medicine and Indian health department have asked clinics to start essential services in a phased manner with all necessary safety measures.
Working as per the guidelines provided by the authorities, Indira IVF, the largest fertility chain in India has taken a decision to re-start its In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) services. All 89 clinics are open for patients who are seeking treatment with all the precautionary measures as per the guidelines provided by the Government of India.
With the current number of cases increasing aggressively, hospitals and clinics are advised to remain vigilant in the safety protocols and take all the required safety measures. Relentless adherence to safety protocols is a must.
Keeping into consideration the current COVID 19 condition, Indira IVF is following all safety protocols directed by the authorities to ensure the safety of patients, doctors and the working staff.
To ensure a safe and clean environment, the company has come up with precautions including:
- Mandatory checking of temperature for all who enter the premises
- Self-declaration form by the patients to identify the high-risk patients
- Proper precautionary measure should be taken by the patients, doctors, and staff like gloves, masks, and others

Speaking about the same, Mr.Nitiz Murdia, Marketing Director at Indira IVF said ” In this difficult times, we are keeping our focus to minimize visits a patient make to the clinic for the IVF treatment by offering tele-consultation with the treating Fertility Specialist. We are also taking special precaution at all our 88 clinics across PAN India to strictly follow health & hygiene guidelines issued by the government for the safety of our staff & our patients. To live with Covid19 virus is now the new way to live life hence it’s our collective responsibility to take all the necessary precautions to safeguard our-self as well as our family members from this virus.”
Fertility clinics have shut down its services since March after the lockdown was announced. But today, fertility hospitals are trying to resume their operations. The reopening is happening in phases with new safety measures being put in place.
Speaking about the present scenario, Dr. Kshitiz Murdia, Chief Executive Officer, Indira IVF said “The impact of the corona has greatly affected the infertile couples who have planned to undergo treatment in summers; due to lockdown conditions in the city, couples had to postpone their treatment. The good news is that now they will be able to re-start their treatment at Indira IVF clinics. To tackle the previous load of the IVF patients, we are giving priority to patients whose embryos were frozen with us but due to lockdown they couldn’t undergo Embryo Transfer procedure followed by other patients.”
