Hi, my name is Carel van der Merwe. I am a South African native and have been living in Connecticut for the past 20 years. My professional background has mostly been in finance, working for large corporates in sales and business development. Given my background, you may ask why I decided to decided to start My Fertility SA. My long-term partner underwent several IVF cycles without success and after draining her savings decided to opt for adoption instead. This difficult experience planted the seed to start My Fertility SA. 

I would like to build greater awareness of the excellent fertility treatments available in South Africa at a fraction of the cost in the US. My vision is to build a trusted platform that would make the process of seeking fertility treatment in a world-class tourist destination, as seamless as possible.  

I am fortunate enough to have 3 sons and I realize that parenthood requires love, not DNA. 

Your fertility journey is a difficult one and you need to be tough to get through the hormone injections, egg retrievals, the heartbreak of failed cycles and losses. However, the longing to be a parent and love to be a mom or dad is something to be proud of and I would love to help in any way I can to make that possible.
