Alexander forbes verifies bridge clinic’s 2017 birth records

As proud pioneers of fertility services in Nigeria since 1999 and known for upholding ethical practice and setting the standard within the industry, Bridge Clinic has successfully undergone a validation audit of its birth records for the year 2017. This exercise was conducted by the international auditing firm, Alexander Forbes Consulting Actuaries Nigeria Limited.

The period under review spanned January to December 2017 and comprised analysis of In-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments and birth records across the four (4) centres of Bridge Clinic; Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and our partnership with LASUTH, The Institute of Fertility Medicine (IFM).

Summary of Outcomes

The audit revealed a 14% increase in pregnancy rates in comparison with the year 2016. Within the period under review, 27% of clients who presented at the clinic for their own IVF cycle were less than 35years. Gold standard clients are identified using the following parameters;

  • Age less than 35 years going through their own cycle
  • No Fibroid
  • No surgically collected sperm
  • Body mass index (BMI) within the range of 18-32
  • FSH dose less than 300iu

Over a 10-year period, Bridge Clinic has continuously strived to keep up with technological and procedural advancements in fertility medicine to provide clients with the best chance at success possible. This effort peaked in 2015 where the clinic achieved the highest clinical pregnancy rate at 49% and steadily maintained success rates within the upper 40’s.

Several parameters with respect to birth rates were also measured with a steady rise in clinical pregnancy rates from 24% in 2015 to 30% in 2017. Live birth rates also rose in comparison to 2016 from 25% to 28%.

This result when distilled showed a high number of singleton and twin gestations with over 170 births in 2017.

According to Alexander Forbes, the methods and assumptions deployed during Bridge Clinic's audit "satisfy the requirements of treatment procedures and expected outcome and taken as a whole, are mutually compatible."

This audit has further consolidated Bridge Clinic as Nigeria's Most Fertile Fertility Centre consistently delivering on her promise to be transparent with a verified birth count of well over 200 babies and counting in 2017 alone. Hence, earning the trust of clients, medical practitioners and partners across Nigeria and beyond its shores.

The exercise was concluded and the report signed off by all parties on 28th March 2019.
