EEVA IVF BC – Twitter Event with Kobo Giveaway ~ #EEVA1STBC #LinkedMoms

EEVA in action

Did you know that one in six people of reproductive age struggle with infertility? Of that group, some will be advised medically that their only option to conceive is in vitro fertilization. So where do you go to have IVF done? In looking at clinics you will likely contemplate several things – geography, pregnancy success rates, advancements.  IVF is a personal and emotional event. You want the best.

If you live in British Columbia, you have some remarkable fertility clinics to choose from and some amazing talented award-winning doctors like Dr. Sonya Kashyap, medical director of @GenesisIVFBC. Kashyap was mentored by Celine Dion’s fertility doctor, Dr. Zev Rosenwaks during her competitive fellowship in reproductive medicine at Cornell. On Wednesday night we will be chatting with Dr. Kashyap all about Genesis Fertility Centre BC and their ground-breaking new technology called EEVA.

9d50e-681495006175Join us to learn more about the procedure itself. Also RSVP here. One Kobo Arc 7 will be given away to one participant at the party. But you can’t win if you don’t RSVP. Make note of a few key facts here. You may be asked to answer them during the Linked Moms twitter event at 10 p.m. EST, or 7 p.m. PT. Read my first #EEVA1stBC post here about the technology and why it is so ground-breaking.

This twitter party will be extremely relevant to anyone who is struggling with infertility.

EEVA’s (early embryo viability assessment) a test that helps verify which embryos have the highest development potential. EEVA takes video images of your embryos, which are then analyzed. EEVA, designed by Auxogyn Inc., can help improve IVF outcomes by providing information that helps doctors predict which embryo is most likely develop with a higher level of accuracy. In North America, Genesis Fertility Clinic BC, is the first commercial clinic in North America to offer EEVA. This smart technology may optimize chances for a successful pregnancy.

Gardening–LinkedMoms Chat–June 12, 8 pm EST–Prizes from DKCanada


April showers bring May flowers or in our case… May showers bring June flowers.  This week on Linkedmoms we are all about gardening.  Paula and I are of two different mines, she likes gardening and mucking about in the dirt, my idea of a great garden is a ‘Zen’ garden – one lonely bonsai and a lot of rocks in a nice neat pattern. 

I am pretty certain I am in the minority since most of my friends love to garden.  So we at LinkedMoms wanted to invite our community to join us in the discussion. Tell us about your gardens, show us pictures from pinterest or your blog, give us some great tips to be better gardeners. Tell us how you make gardening easier for you – do you plant perennials more then annuals? Do you use a lot of mulch to keep the weeds at bay? Do you like the Zen look like I do? Come by and chat with us.

We have some sweet surprises for you – a few choice gardening books are up for grabs.  We are happy to announce that DK books has generously offered some of their gardening books for our community.


So come along and follow the chatter that is going on at LinkedMoms.

Join the conversation Wednesday, June 12th, 2013 at 8 pm EST, 7 pm CST, 5 PST.

Please use the #LinkedMoms hashtag at the end of all of your tweets to be included in the conversation and to be eligible to win a prize.

8:00 – 9:00pm (EST)
