The quality care and support we provide our patients at every stage of their journey to parenthood is all thanks to the dedication and expertise of our support team.
Our counselling service is unique in Singapore, and includes support for all IVF patients as well as specialist counselling for our donor programmes and genetic testing. All patients of Virtus Fertility Centre are offered private coaching and counselling sessions prior to commencing hormone stimulation and just before embryo transfer. We find this places couples in the best possible emotional state for their treatment. Research shows that emotional and mental stability can have a positive impact on the procedure.
Tanja Faessler-Moro is Virtus' certified fertility counsellor.

She is a certified psychologist, coach and counselor and has grown her experience through her diverse network of experts in the field of medicine and alternative therapies.
