EmBIO was the fertility center in Greece where the first birth from a frozen egg, the first donor egg IVF pregnancy, and the first IVF-vitrification took place.

Unexplained infertility, azoospermia, infertility in women over 40, or carriers of genetic diseases are just problems to be solved at this modern IVF clinic easily reached at a short distance from Athens International Airport.

The fertility centre is situated at a quiet, leafy suburb. In its luxurious rooms, you will immediately feel welcome and confident that you are in the right place for your pregnancy, surrounded by caring people who readily understand your needs.

one of the first ICSI procedures in the UK.

The fertility center’s Director, Gynecologist and Fertility Specialist Dr. Thanos Paraschos is an attentive listener and a man of action. You will get to see him every time you visit the clinic, and benefit from the fact that he does all the fertility procedures himself (from ultrasound to oocyte retrieval and painless embryo transfer, using the ultrasound assisted catheter he designed at Hammersmith Hospital, London, in Lord Professor Robert Winston’s team.

He was in the team that performed the world’s first PGD at Hammersmith Hospital, London, in 1989 alongside Lord Professor Robert Winston.

We would recommend your services to anyone and everyone

IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation

After more than a year of struggling with infertility in Boston USA where we live, a move to Greece brought my wife and I into the care of Embio clinic in Athens and specifically, Dr. Paraschos. We had done the some pills, tried the IUI's unsuccessfully and even my wife spontaneously conceived only to discover it was a tubal pregnancy. Dr. Paraschos read our charts and gave us options - he was not quick to recommend one route over the other as he was confident we WOULD be parents one day. With the treatments we had previously attempted, along with the increased risk of another tubal pregnancy, we opted to try IVF.

Thankfully, we were successful after the first round. We are now the lucky parents of two healthy and happy 16 month old twin girls! We credit Dr. Paraschos and his team not only for their expert medical guidance, but also their empathy and compassion to couples who are experiencing infertility. It is such a delicate issue - one that many people do not understand. The nursing staff handled our questions and concerns with the utmost urgency and kindness - support that we will never forget receiving from you!

In our opinion, this clinic is the whole package! We would recommend your services to anyone and everyone! We look forward to staying in touch with you through the years as the two miracles you helped us conceive remind us every day how blessed we are! Thank you Dr Paraschos just doesn't cut it - we are forever grateful.

I would definitely recommend this professional clinic

5 50 IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation • Paid: 5500 €

I am 47 years and had always dreamed of having another baby. Right from the beginning the clinic was very helpful and provided me with detailed information on the IVF process.

I was assigned a personal IVF coordinator (Anna Karamitrou) who was very helpful and was always there for me if I had any questions or doubts. Also at the clinic, there was professional support and it was clearly explained what the next steps would be, this was very comforting and reassuring.

I was pregnant at the first attempt and am now the proud mother of a beautiful and healthy son. I would like to thank the entire staff and Anna in particular for her endless help and devotion. I would definitely recommend this professional clinic.

I would have no hesitation in recommending

5 50 IVF with Donor Eggs • Paid: 5000 €

I was a little anxious before we visited the clinic as it was a big step to take travelling to Greece as we had found them online, but straight away on our first visit to the clinic I was put at ease, the facility was state of the art and very impressive!

It was a busy clinic and a lot of the patients seemed to be local, so this also reassured me that they seem to have a good name locally.

My partner is over 50 and ivf would have been more difficult in the UK. But here they were very relaxed about this and confident it could succeed. We were given a tour of the building and the staff were very friendly. The treatment didn't take too long and we were able to enjoy the rest of the holiday at the hotel pool. We're now excitedly awaiting our new arrivals (which are 5 weeks off) and are so happy and thankful to Dr Paraschos, Sotiria and all the other staff for all their help. I would have no hesitation in recommending EmBIO.

Happily awaiting the birth of our triplets, 2 boys and 1 girl!

5 50 IVF with Donor Eggs, FET - Frozen Embryo Transfer • Paid: 8283 €

We'd been considering a child for over a year, but knew at my age of then 50, no clinic in England would touch me.

I searched the Internet, and found various bits of information. Then I came across Embio Clinic, I emailed them, and they sent me a list of questions about where my cycle was up to date, once they had this they gave me more details of tests I should have here in England, which meant I'd be able to start the treatment here, then just go to Greece for the embryo transfer! All my questions and concerns were answered very quickly.

When we arrived at the clinic, very nervous and anxious, I was soon put at ease by the staff (Sotiria). The building was state of the art, and immaculate.

We were introduced to Dr Paraschos who was lovely, very calm and reassuring. He answered any questions I had and we were also taken round the building showing us the lab and where the procedure would take place.

Unfortunately the first treatment was unsuccessful, I was shocked at how upset I was. The clinic were very supportive and offered a second treatment, with a discount. Now bordering on 51 I knew this would be my last chance.

My partner and I agreed to give it one last go.

So we organised a second visit, we had the transfer the day of our arrival, and chilled at the pool for the rest of the week.

I am now 24 weeks pregnant, and happily awaiting the birth of our triplets, 2 boys and 1 girl! I cannot thank Dr Paraschos and his staff enough.
