Meet Catherine, Nurse Coordinator for the Ovatures egg donation program at RMA, who spends her days supporting donors and patients considering using donor eggs. This often includes organizing donor treatment cycles, monitor donors for progress during those cycles and generally assist donors by talking, educating and counseling them from the moment they become patients until after their egg retrieval procedure.
“My goal is to provide top quality nursing care to patients with a focus on education,” Catherine said. “I try to become an additional support in their life.”
That support comes in many forms, including shedding some happy tears.
“One of my very first patients was really hesitant about using a donor at first, but ending up just writing the sweetest letter to her donor. It brought tears to my eyes and even the donor told me that reading the letter made her agree to donate again.”
