Nurse Linda on IVF, Fertility and Much More
Welcome to the “Ask Nurse Linda” video blog. This is a place for you to ask those questions that keep you up at night, all those things that can cause you so much worry, but really don’t need to. The more you learn and understand about what goes on in your ivf cycle, the much better you will feel, and the more control you will have (and therefore, less stress, hopefully!) This video blog is about us talking through things, learning and teaching about infertility issues. The infertility topics are whatever you want them to be. I, Nurse Linda, create infertility videos with details about cycles, expectations, relationships, future steps, etc. I won’t be giving “medical advice” as that is the responsibility of your physician, but we’ll walk around these areas and I’ll share what 15 years in the infertility field has shown me. I’ve talked many of my patients “off the ledge” and now I want to extend this to those that may not sit across from me.
Please feel free to submit your questions, concerns, or ideas for my next video blog to AskNurseLinda@haveababy.com. I will use your ideas for upcoming YouTube segments. I look forward to hearing from you and hope I can provide you with some useful insights!
