Membership with The IVF Project provides you and your partner (if applicable) with access to your tailored exercise program, nutrition tracking, our educational resources and one on one expert advice. As our service is highly individualised we limit the number of new members we take each month to ensure you receive personalised service. Enhancing your fertility and improving the outcome of assisted reproductive treatments is best realised with lifestyle change over a period of time and we want to ensure our members receive this support in a personalised manner.
Getting to Know You
When you join The IVF Project one of the first steps is for you to complete our online Medical and Physical Activity Questionnaire. Once your Questionnaire is submitted we get in touch with you via email to find out a bit more about you and book you in for an online video Telehealth Consultation with us. We then design your tailored exercise prescription based on your activity and medical history, your fertility journey and current current stage of treatment. You will be able to start improving your chance of success in no time!
Your partner (if applicable) will also be able to complete the online Questionnaire and they will then be provided with their own log in details and password so they can also access their custom exercise program.
Custom Exercise Prescription
You will be provided with programs for each stage of your treatment including pre-stimulation (for periods where you are not undergoing any treatment), stimulation, fresh and frozen transfers. We add your custom program to your workout calendar which is accessible via our online exercise portal or The IVF Project app. Each workout can be logged as complete so you can track your progress and they are tailored with suitable progression over the course of your treatment. We update your program regularly and every time your treatment stage changes so you always receive the optimal prescription!
The IVF Project app makes your exercise program easily accessible. You can follow your program (complete with animated exercise demonstrations and instructions) on The IVF Project app or via The IVF Project online exercise portal. You also have the option of printing out your program if you prefer.
Food for Fertility
Nutrition tracking is available via our Food app and we provide you with individualised guidance on energy intake and marconutrients tailored by a Clinical Dietitian. Once you have completed a few days of your Food logging via our Food app we do a nutritional assessment to provide you with comprehensive, individualised feedback on your dietary intake of micronutrients and fatty acids so you can further optimise your fertility with the right foods.
Your programs are designed specifically for pre- and during assisted reproductive treatments. If you become pregnant we provide you with a program to cover the initial weeks of your pregnancy. Our goal is to help women and men conceive and we will be able to provide you with recommendations for how to access Exercise Physiology services during your pregnancy.
"To the IVF Project Team, my husband and I can’t thank you enough for the tailored exercise program during our pre-conception period and the first 6 weeks. We’ve made it past 14 weeks and are so thrilled! Your support and guidance on the appropriate level of exercise was very insightful, reassuring and comforting to know we were doing everything possible to help our cause. The information on your website was very helpful and the app was so easy to use. Such a small investment for such a miraculous outcome."
"After 5 years of trying to conceive, 8 cycles of IVF we are expecting our first baby. Through the support of The IVF project I stopped second guessing if what I was doing (or not doing) was counter productive to the IVF process. It gave me confidence, made me feel informed about what I should be doing and when in a cycle - info that is not easy to find."
