About Us

Our goal is for you to have the family you want.

Waterstone Clinic provides a range of tests, services and procedures that are evidence-based and performed to the highest standard. Dr John Waterstone founded the clinic in 2002 (then named Cork Fertility Centre). The clinic has an international reputation for success and exceptional care.

Waterstone Clinic is a family-run, Irish-owned, and independent clinic. It is run by experienced clinicians with clinics in Cork, Dublin, Limerick and Waterford.

Why Choose Waterstone Clinic

We understand that our patients’ journeys are individual and often unique, so we provide a large range of services and procedures with the best people, equipment and facilities possible. We have led the field in ensuring the most advanced fertility services are available to patients in Ireland. We will leave no stone unturned in the search for your particular solution, at a standard that is second to none, and always informed by cutting-edge scientific developments.

Our Philosophy

Fertility is a complicated subject. Our philosophy of care is to deliver effective treatment responsibly in a cost-effective manner. We will not rush in with treatment if there is a good chance that you will achieve pregnancy naturally. Neither will we subject you to unnecessary investigations or treatments.

At Waterstone Clinic we are deeply and personally committed to making the dream of parenthood a reality for each of our patients. Our service is delivered by our team of experienced and dedicated fertility specialists, who make our patients part of our family as they create their own.

Early scan times and a seven day service

Our ultrasound scanning lists begin at 7:30am, meaning that you can continue your normal working life while undergoing your treatment cycle.

We offer a seven day service for our treatments. We carry out egg collections and embryo transfers  every day of the week according to when your body is ready rather than to suit a Monday to Friday schedule.

Support and advice available every day

Our experienced fertility nurse specialists are available every day by telephone or via email (advice@waterstoneclinic.ie) to answer your questions or address any concerns you may have. They have immediate access to your up to date case notes to ensure sound advice relevant to your particular situation. We pride ourselves on the excellent support we provide our patients while they attend our clinic.

We care

We care about your fertility journey. Your joy is ours too and we love receiving photos and updates on our Waterstone Clinic babies. We are here for you too when things aren’t going well, we offer free counselling services and support at every step.

You are in good hands with us.
