CT Fertility is offering webinars featuring Dr. Doyle, our IVF lab staff, nursing team and other internal and guest professionals. These seminars can be attended live anywhere by using a computer or mobile devices. They will also be archived for later viewing. Most webinars are timed so they can be viewed mid-day eastern and central USA, and early evening in Europe. They are aimed to allow prospective parents to learn more about some of the new technologies and options related to IVF, egg donation and surrogacy, and to answer questions they may have.
