IVF Informational Video (1A) Part 1 Clinical Overview

The on-line IVF informational presentation is the first step in starting your IVF journey. We also refer to this two-part video presentation as the “1A” seminar. There are many reasons why patients undergo IVF; however, the process is generally the same, regardless of the reason that IVF is being performed. These videos will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the clinical process and psychological issues associated with your IVF treatment. It will provide you with a solid base of information that will make your visit with your doctor as productive as possible.

Here’s how this presentation will work:

  1. It is required that you watch both videos–Part 1 [Clinical Overview] and Part 2 [Psychological Preparation]. You can watch them in any order. We strongly recommend that if you are part of a couple, both people watch both videos.
  2. First, watch the entire first video below. We suggest you keep a pen and paper handy and jot down any questions that arise while watching so that you can review these questions at your physician appointment.
  3. After the video is completely finished, you will be prompted to complete an electronic form which will be sent to us verifying you have watched the complete first video.
  4. Once the form is submitted, you will receive an email that will verify receipt of your viewing confirmation. Please bring this email with you to your 1B/IVF consultation with your MD.

It is very important that you watch BOTH videos and complete the electronic forms after each verifying completion. The process for watching the videos is the same for each. Each video must be watched in its entirety. You may pause by clicking on the screen and re-start by clicking on again, but the entire video must be watched in one viewing. Important: you must watch it on this page. If you watch it on You Tube instead of this page, you will not receive the automatic form. Once The Center receives a verifying e-form from you for each video and you receive two email confirmations indicating you have watched both videos, you are ready to meet with your physician.
