Procrea Fertility and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

30th March 2020

Procréa Fertilité is still open for NIFTY prenatal test analysis but due to the current situation with COVID-19 our Montréal office is closed for obstetrical ultrasounds and NIFTY blood draws until further notice

Our partner clinics all over Canada (click here for Biron centres and here for all other centres) are continuing to draw blood for NIFTY testing and sending them to us for analysis.  You may contact these partner clinics directly to arrange for your NIFTY test to be drawn and sent to Procrea Fertilité.

For those patients wishing to have an obstetrical ultrasound you may contact Imagix.  Please take note that Imagix offers dating ultrasounds (covered by the RAMQ) as well as nuchal translucency ultrasounds (160$ singleton, 190$ twin pregnancy) .  Only these three locations offer nuchal translucency ultrasounds : Boucherville, Brossard and Laennac (Montreal). 

Please note that our Procrea Fertilité clinic in Gatineau continues to offer obstetrical ultrasounds and NIFTY tests  (except nuchal translucency)

Update : March 15th 2020

At Procrea Fertility we are committed to protecting our patients and staff. Like all of you, we have been monitoring the impact and updates on Coronavirus (COVID-19) and are constantly surveilling the recommendations from the DSQ (Direction régionale de santé publique) and the (MSSS) Le ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux.

We are asking that all patients present themselves solo unless a partner is required for a treatment scheduled that day or as a translator due to a language barrier. Absolutely no children allowed.

You will be required to answer triage questions at the moment you take the appt as well as at the confirmation of the appointment. You will also be required to answer a questions/questionnaire upon entering the clinic.

We ask that you do not present yourself at the clinic if you have travelled outside of Canada in the last 4 weeks, exhibit respiratory symptoms or have been in contact with a person who has travelled outside of Canada, or has confirmed case of COVID-19/ CORONAVIRUS.
