I was a practicing nurse for 10 years before I moved into the world of infertility. As a nurse, I had been asked by Robin von Halle, the owner of a local egg donation agency, to perform injections on egg donors. It was an extra job at the time but I began to get to know the patients and their stories. I loved the personal interaction, which was at a different level than what I’d experienced during my 10-to-12-hour shifts at my position at the doctor’s office.
