We provide reproductive healthcare benefits for employees.
Our members benefit from support 7 days a week, access to telehealth solutions (video consultations, at home diagnostic kits, a digital platform) and discounted treatment – alongside much, much more.
We found Fertifa (Fertility-For-All) due to personal experiences with reproductive healthcare and a desire to make it more accessible in the workplace. We are a team of world-class healthcare professionals, employee benefit experts and fertility specialists who can deliver the right solution and care for your employees.
Infertility is classed as a disease by the World Health Organisation (WHO); yet, most private medical insurers don’t cover reproductive healthcare.
Infertility affects a staggering 1 in 6 employees – men and women.
Miscarriage affects 1 in 4 employees, many of them suffering in silence without any support in place, even via the NHS.
All LGBT+ employees will require some form of support if they wish to have a family.
Single women are starting to have families later in life – and the impact is that social egg freezing is becoming increasingly normal.
The impact of these issues on wellbeing is significant -mentally, physically and financially.
Reproductive healthcare benefits can add value and support these key corporate objectives:
- Employee wellbeing
- Diversity & inclusion
- Gender equality
- Talent, attraction, retention and engagement

Given the number of employees across the UK (around 3.5m) that are affected by infertility, miscarriage or general difficulties with conception, we wholly believe that reproductive healthcare is a solution that should be offered by all companies.
Given that the cost to employers can be minimal, the argument is made easier.
- 50% of infertility issues are ‘male factor’ – i.e. issues with the man
- The vast majority of millennials believe employers should offer fertility benefits
- LGBT+ employees need support if they would like to have a child – either through donor sperm, surrogacy or adoption
- 25% of employees will suffer a miscarriage
Issues with reproductive health can affect us all. Such benefit provision can really make a difference to your workforce – improving employee loyalty, engagement, wellbeing and retention.
ROI is typically in the region of 600% through savings made with respect to recruitment, retention and productivity.
Even more importantly, when it comes to reproductive healthcare benefits, there are significant intangible benefits especially around employee wellbeing and goodwill.
As part of your free business case, we will include what we perceive to be a reliable estimate of your ROI when rolling out our reproductive healthcare solutions to your employees.
Although your employees are the ones that will benefit from the day-to-day support that comes with Fertifa’s solution, employers also receive various benefits:

During roll-out week, we can be on-site* supporting the onboarding of your employees that are interested in joining the Fertifa programme.
We include a full implementation plan as part of your bespoke business case.

Of course. Given the multi-disciplinary nature of our team, we can support HR teams in a variety of ways. If you’re not quite ready to implement reproductive healthcare benefits at your company, we will be able to help in other ways, such as:

- Support in writing fertility or other wellbeing policies
- Events and seminars as part of specific initiatives (such as D&I or wellbeing weeks)
