    Episode 19: The Downlow on Embryos from "The Embryo Lady"

    in Moms and Family

    My guest today is, "The Embryo Lady." She has spent countless hours and a number of years behind the scenes at Fertility Clinics working as an embryologist.
    It is my pleasure to introduce you to my friend, Sarah Goodrich, whom I met a number of years ago at a networking event and who has made a special place in my heart. She GETS what Tim and I are going through and she sees and knows all too well, the other side of the process that doesn't get as much prayer and attention.
    As a result of today's show, my hope is to have eyes opened, hearts softened, and patience extended to more than just the men and women praying for children, but every person and part of the process involved.
    DID YOU KNOW: Recent legislation passed in certain states REQUIRES embryos to be disposed of after 5 years of preservation? Tim and I have had ours frozen for nearly 7 years. What does this means for our "children in waiting"?

    What Every Infertility Patient MUST Know about Eggs and Embryos

    in Health

    Healthy eggs and embryos are the key to success in fertility treatment, but most of us know very little about them. Join us to talk about how human embryos grow and implant into the woman's uterus. How long can embryos remain frozen. What is happening with egg freezing, PGD, PGS, and freezing embryos. What can you do to help your embryos implant during IVF. Our guest today is Dr. Michael Tucker, scientific director for both Georgia Reproductive Specialist (one of our wonderful sponsors) in Atlanta, Alpharetta and Decatur, Georgia and Shady Grove Fertility in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC. Dr. Tucker has been a full-time clinical embryologist since 1983. His list of first’s is impressive: first intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) birth in the United States, first birth resulting from a testicular biopsy in the US, the first birth in the world from frozen donor eggs, and the first pregnancy in the world from immature eggs that were matured after thawing in the IVF lab.
