S2 Ep 12_ Mother's Day Special _ Egg Donation
Play • 28 min

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers past, present and future.  Mother's in waiting I see you and stand with you as you keep your vision in alive and guarded. 

Mother's Day, at times, can't be possible without the generosity of donors to make it happen and so I speak to Dr Melissa Cameron from Melbourne IVF to discuss the gift of egg donation and the shortage and how education is the key and who can donate.

· Melissa trained in obstetrics and gynaecology at the Mercy Hospital for Women, obtaining her Fellowship in 2006. This included fellowships in paediatric and adolescent gynaecology at the Royal Children’s Hospital, and in advanced laparoscopic gynaecological surgery at the Mercy Hospital for Women. She's also completed Master degrees in both Reproductive Medicine and Public Health, specialising in women’s health and fertility issues.

· With a focus on fertility issues affecting women with endometriosis, fibroids and uterine abnormalities, Melissa helps couples with some of the most challenging fertility problems.

· Melissa also has a special interest in helping same sex couples, people who are transgender and gender diverse, and single women create a family through the Melbourne IVF donor program.

· Through research in these areas, Melissa shares her expertise with other specialists, presenting at local and international conferences, workshops and lectures. Melissa also holds public appointments at The Women’s Hospital.
