Our IVF co-ordinators are all registered nurses with a 4 year degree or equivalent qualification.
Their role is to guide the patient through the various steps of the IVF or Egg Donation cycle.
Planning a treatment cycle from far away can seem like a daunting process, but the IVF co-ordinators are there to answer any practical questions and offer advice & support. They are also responsible for planning the treatment dates and in an Egg Donation cycle, synchronizing the donor and the recipient.
Most of the communication is done via email correspondence. Once the patient arrives at the clinic they will show the patient how to use the medication.
Their favourite part of the job is to have a happy patient or even better to receive a photo of the baby (and maybe get to give the baby a cuddle in real life).
