Personal care throughout your treatment
As a patient you will be under the care of a team of nurses, who provide individual care throughout your treatment.
The nurses are able to answer your questions, discuss concerns and liaise with your doctor. They will perform tests, scans and injections, and teach you how to administer your own injections at home. Your fertility nurse can also provide specific care throughout the early stages of pregnancy. Our nurses also guide you through the donor program treatment if you are accessing donor sperm, eggs or embryos.
As part of our ongoing improvements to patient care, a representative of the nursing team will contact you the day after your egg collection to inform you of the number of oocytes that have been fertilised.
Early pregnancy management
A specialist Early Pregnancy Management Nurse will monitor the early stages of pregnancy, especially if you have experienced a pregnancy loss, or are at risk of this occurring. This includes all necessary tests and monitoring, as well as liaising with your fertility specialist and providing advice.
Available for you, Monday-Saturday
Our nurses are available from Monday to Saturday, beginning their morning clinic at 7.00am.
The nursing unit is managed by Rachael Varady, who has many years’ of nursing experience, in particular in women’s health both in Australia and the UK. Rachael also has many years’ experience in fertility nursing and with the donor team, previously managing the donor and surrogacy programs at Melbourne IVF.
