First Steps

You will find it helpful to familiarize yourself with the terms commonly used in the ART community. We have included a glossary of terms to provide you with a quick reference. There are also several infertility support groups that offer helpful web sites.

Atlantic Canada’s provincial health insurance programs do not cover services provided by AART. It is important that you be aware of the cost of our therapies and other financial matters as you consider getting started. If you must travel any distance to our centre, we will provide a listing of accommodations with the prices we have negotiated to fit your budget.

We have attempted to include answers to those questions most frequently asked of us. Please note that the focus for FAQs is our services rather than that of medical science. We provide links to a variety of reference sites offering more detailed information on these subjects.
