CREA (IVF Valencia) is a private fertility clinic established in 1993 that has been a pioneer in reproductive medicine for over 20 years. The clinic was completely renovated in 2010 and it features three advanced technology laboratories (IVF lab, andrology lab and general analyses lab), two operating theatres and five single en-suite rooms for patients. The clinic employs seven fertility doctors and six embryologists with 10-year’s experience of which three embryologists are accredited by ESHRE. Altogether, the clinic works with more than 40 professionals, many of them with 25 years of experience in the field. CREA’s medical staff is a close-knit and passionate team.

In 2018 the clinic’s doctors performed 1,217 treatment cycles, of which 25.2% were egg donation cycles and 74.8% were IVF with own eggs cycles. It is easy to see that the clinic is very effective when it comes to treating patients with their own genetic material. It is great news for patients who have not decided to pursue the egg donation journey yet.

CREA (IVF Valencia) holds ISO 9001:2018 accreditation (ISO 9001 since 2004 for the laboratories) and UNE 179007. The latter is a quality standard developed by AENOR and ASEBIR to promote and improve quality and safety in assisted reproduction laboratories. Only 10% of Spanish IVF clinics have this certification. The clinic also belongs to multiple international fertility organizations and medical associations, like ESHRE or ASRM.

CREA Valencia has created the perfect balance. It is a super high tech fertility clinic with a lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I was in amazing hands, being looked after by the international liaisons who were so kind, supportive and incredibly informative. Their English is faultless and they were always very prompt in replying to emails. The doctors at Crea are honest, realistic and above all, refreshingly human! I had a wonderful experience at CREA Valencia not least because it resulted in the birth of my beautiful daughter. Huge thanks to Francesca, Dr. Monica and my smiley, yoga-loving embryologist.

Patient 1

Dear couples, if you are reading this letter you must be having to consider the difficult decision about going abroad to CREA for treatment. When we were faced with this prospect we wished we could have talked to couples who had already been there for treatment as we had so many questions… so this is why we are writing in the hope that we can at least try to help people find some answers and maybe a Little reassurance along the way.
To give you a little background, we had lots of tries at starting a family including using ICSI at our UK clinic but all had failed as my eggs were too poor, so we were told our chances would greatly improve if we used a donor and were given CREA as an option. There were no waiting lists at CREA, it had good links with the UK clinic plus the egg donation was anonymous so we were drawn to this option but decided that we’d like to go out first to meet some of the people that might be involved in our treatment and see the clinic for ourselves. Valencia was easy to travel to from the UK and the city is within a 15-20 minute taxi ride from the airport. The clinic recommended some local hotels, which offered reduced rates for patients of CREA, both hotels we stayed in during our visits were ideally located less than 2 minutes walk to the clinic. CREA is located in a quiet location in an older part of Valencia. The clinic itself was light, airy mand modern and both Francesca and Joelle from the International Department spoke excellent English and provided support as well as acted as translator during our visits, though I should point that all members of staff that we encountered at CREA spoke English and translation was only required on the more technical aspects of our treatments. From our initial visit meeting Francesca to our encounters with all the staff at CREA (Doctors, Nurses, Embryologists and the receptionists) we always felt comfortable with the Clinic, this was very important to us and was a key reason why we chose CREA. At CREA the facilities were excellent from the scanning rooms with scanners linked to flat screen TV son the walls so it was easy to see things when they were discussing internal scans to the individual recovery romos (with en-suite facilities) which made things much more pleasant and allowed time to rest pre and after transfers. Another excellent feature of CREA is the dedicated International Department, all queries or communication with the clinic were answered in a timely manner (usually the same day or by first thing the following morning) which at stressful times is very important, we were aware of other couples having treatment at other clinics in Spain who had to wait many days for responses and often had to chase their clinic up, we did not experience this with CREA. Finally, we felt that although clinics have to make money from patients CREA didn’t feel like that and when our first two treatments failed, rather than offer us more they sat down with us to discuss further tests which provided absolutely the right thing to do showing up a range of other undetected issues. Their technology was more advanced than what we had experienced in the UK, and it so happened the procedures we had to have on the sperm were pionereed by the clinics director years beforehand. We hope this has helped to give you a little insight into what you migh expect. We are of course slightly biased as this story had a doubly happy ending in that on our third try we got pregnant with twins and we are now parents to a little boy and girl.
