Hi Heidi and Tim. It’s Doctor ******* ******* here just ringing to see, say that I see that it was negative result, unfortunately, and just ter, ter, just to discuss where to from here. Ahhh, um certainly as far as egg number and embryo number we did much better with the flare cycle, um, we could consider doing that. Aaaaaah I know we’ve talked previously about biopsying the embryos, ummm that would be a possibility if we had enough embryos to biopsy. It’s more useful if we’ve got a lot of embryos to choose from. Um, the other thing I wanted to introduce the concept of is even thinking about using donor eggs ummm at some stage, sooo if you wanna give me a call back at some stage and we can have a chat about that. All the best. Bye.
(I’m pretty sure) There will be no Science Baby is an exploration of the artist’s experience of her body and mind within her ongoing process of baby-making, failing fertility and the resulting process of In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF).
Heidi Holmes recently completed an Honours year in the Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting) course at The Victorian College of the Arts (VCA). She is a current member of the SEVENTH Gallery board.
