Infertility Guelph

Male infertility and other hot topics October 16, 2012

Our guest speaker tomorrow night is Teresa Barry Longley an RN at Heart Fertility Centre in Hamilton.  She’s a fountain of knowledge and male infertility is her specialty.  I’ve never met someone who gets so excited about sperm…I’m just saying.  She’ll be on hand to answer questions and although the topic is male infertility, I know she would be happy to answer any questions about infertility in general that she can.  As an added bonus, she’s also a reiki practitioner and is knowledgable about how alternative treatments can benefit your medical fertility treatments.  We both have had many conversations with my ovaries about how they need to behave and I’m sure we will have many more!

As usual, we’re meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of the month –  October 17 from 7-9pm at the Unitarian Congregation in Guelph.

Hope you can make it out tomorrow night – you definitely don’t want to miss a night with Teresa!

Where is the time going?  There’s so much going on these days that it seems I rarely have time to get on here and update our page! 

I wanted to say a special thank you to Sara Cohen, who spoke at our last meeting – she was fantastic!  She spoke about fertility law in Canada and if you are considering surrogacy or ART using an egg donor or sperm donor I highly suggest you speak with her. 

Dr. Elizabeth J. Cherevaty will be our guest at our next meeting tomorrow night and she is going to share some tips on optimizing the health and fertility of both partners as well as provide information on treatments that can compliment your fertility treatments. 

Hope you can make it out – we look forward to seeing you there!

Incredible speakers lined up for upcoming meetings February 8, 2012

It feels like spring and we have sprung into action!

We have some incredible speakers lined up for the next few months of meetings and I am really hoping we are able to get more people out to our meetings.

February 15

Reinie Jackson will be explaining how Reiki can assist with fertility.  She comes highly reccomended from one of our former members who is now pregnant!  Reinie will spend the first half of the meeting discussing what reiki is, how it can help and the second half of the meeting she will be offering mini sessions for anyone who wants to give it a try!


March 21

Sara R. Cohen from Fertility Law Canada will be our guest speaker.  Whether you are a traditional family looking to build your family through non-traditional means, or looking to create or build a non-traditional family, a fertility lawyer can help you to achieve that goal.   For people looking to create or build their family through Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), a team of people is necessary.  In general, when building a family using donated sperm, eggs or embryos, and/or with the help of a surrogate mother or gestational carrier, a fertility lawyer is a critical part of this collaborative team.

April 18
We are currently confirming a local practitioner to speak about Accupuncture and fertility.  Stay tuned for more details!
We have been working hard to recruit great speakers on topics that are important to you.  These speakers have generously donated their time to speak with us and we are so appreciative.  I hope you will join us and if you have any suggestions for upcoming meetings – please don’t hesitate to let us know.
See you soon!
