Avneet Panesar, Genesis Fertility

Meet Us Monday: Avneet Panesar

Hey!

I’m Avneet, one of the medical office assistants’ that works here with the Genesis family.

Since joining the Genesis family, I have only felt love and sincerity from every individual that I have worked with. Everyone from our welcoming receptionists to our amazing doctors who ensure that everything that they do provides a warm, caring, and compassionate atmosphere for our patients. From the moment we meet our patients and begin their treatment plans, we start to build relationships that don’t just last until the end of their appointments, but rather for a lifetime.

Meet Us Monday: Paul Wilkinson, Embryologist

Hi, my name is Paul Wilkinson and I am an embryologist here at Genesis Fertility. You will meet me during your OPU and embryo transfer and I’ll talk with you about your embryos as they grow in the lab. You could call me your first baby sitter.

Genesis Fertility Center in Vancouver

I’m originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia. I went to school at Dalhousie University and spent time working in research labs after my degree. I was able to work on multiple projects during that time, including research into heart disease and obesity, that inspired me to seek out a field where I could help people in a more direct way.

Join the Fertility Friends Walk/Run Club!

Fertility Friends Walk-Run Vancouver

Our medical director, Dr. Sonya Kashyap, has recently begun running with Dr. Spence Pentland of Yinstill Reproductive Wellness. On their run, the two doctors were both inspired by the supportive nature of their outings and saw it as an opportunity to talk about their work in the fertility field. From this inspiration stemmed the idea for Fertility Friends Walk/Run Club Vancouver.

Genesis and Yinstill have decided to partner in a walk and run group (running is typically discouraged for women who are undergoing stimulation for IVF treatments, which is why we would like to invite you to also walk). Employees of both clinics, patients undergoing treatment, those who are struggling to conceive and members of their support group are welcome to come out and enjoy some physical activity, Vancouver’s gorgeous scenery and the company of others who understand the pain of infertility. During Wednesday mornings at 6am beginning August 20, 2014, we will depart from the Jericho parking lot (East) towards the Spanish Banks for a 3 km run round trip. We invite all of you to join in this opportunity to improve your health in a supportive environment.

Dasha A. Johnston, RN

Dasha A. Johnston, RN at Genesis Fertility Centre in Vancouver

Hi there, my name is Dasha and I am the newest nurse to join Genesis Fertility Centre. I graduated from University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2010. Most of my past work experience has been primarily based in pediatrics. I worked in a pediatric post anesthetic care unit at the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta from 2010-2012.

In 2012 I met my wonderful husband and made the transitions to the pediatric intensive care unit at the B.C. Children’s Hospital. I have a great passion for working with children and their families. Although my work in the PICU at times may have been emotionally difficult, it was extremely fulfilling.

I have decided to make the transition to Genesis Fertility Centre in April 2014. I am now privileged to be working at Genesis with such a great team of professionals dedicated to couples who are ready to embark on their journey into parenthood.

In my spare time, I love to explore the outdoors by either hiking, biking or kayaking with my husband and my two dogs. However, I have recently suffered a biking accident during which I badly broke my arm and severed my ulnar nerve (so no more biking for me!). I am currently in the process of recovery.

National Adoption Month

There are lots of ways to have children in your life. One way is through adoption. November is National Adoption Month. There are three main ways couples find children to adopt:

1. Adopt a foster child. These children are often over the age of 4 and have special social or medical needs. These children are referred to as “waiting children,” a term which breaks my heart to even type. The BC Ministry of Children and Family Development has information on these children on their website.

2. Adopt a local infant. The BC local infant adoption program helps couples who decide while pregnant or soon after, that they are unable to care for their child and wish to place the children for adoption. To enter this program you must use an adoption agency licensed in BC, of which there are four.

3. International adoption. Countries like China, Korea, Vietnam, and others allow Canadians who meet certain criteria to adopt children. Like local infant adoptions, these adoptions are arranged by one of the four licensed BC adoption agencies.

A good place to start if you are considering adoption is the Adoptive Families Association of BC website.
