We provide fertility 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 fertility care 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 deliver the right solution and care for Employees.
Infertility affects a staggering 1 in 6 employees. The impact on wellbeing is significant -mentally, physically and financially.
All LGBT+ employees will require some form of support if they wish to have a baby.
Single women are starting to have families later in life – and the impact is that social egg freezing is becoming increasingly normal.
There are four key pillars that structure the case for fertility benefits

Given the number of employees across the UK (around 3.5m!) that are affected by infertility / miscarriage / troubles with conception, we wholly believe that fertility benefits are suitable for all companies.
Given the cost to employers can be really low-cost, the argument is made easier.
- 40% of infertility issues are caused by ‘male factor’ – i.e. issues with the man
- The vast majority of millennials want fertility benefits
- LGBT+ employees need support if they would like to have a child – either through donor sperm / surrogacy or adoption
- 20% of employees will suffer a miscarriage
Issues with fertility can affect us all and fertility benefits help support your workforce and encourage for better employee engagement.
The short answer is that it depends.

As part of your free business case, we will include what we perceive to be a good estimate of your ROI through rolling out fertility benefits to your employees.
Accessible and affordable fertility support and treatment. Education and access to advisors 7 days a week.
