End of year letter from Devashana, our Medical Director

Dr Devashana Gupta Repromed Medical Director

Kia ora koutou katoa,

 

I can’t quite believe that we are at the end of the year already. This year has proven to be yet another big year for us at Repromed. We have been happy to continue to welcome new clients and equally excited to welcome back those who have returned to grow their families.

It is an absolute privilege for us to be a part of our clients’ fertility journey – so thank you, to all our clients, for allowing us to support you. 

This year we have had new members join the Repromed team across our andrology, embryology, nursing and health care as well as quality departments. They are not only experts in their field, but also uphold the values that we believe strongly in at Repromed: compassion – ngākau aroha, integrity – ngākau pono, expertise – pūkengatanga, and unity – kotahitanga.

It has been exciting to see Repromed not only represented internationally, but leading the latest research and innovation, with some of our team speaking at the 12th Congress of the Asia Pacific Initiative on Reproduction (ASPIRE 2023) in Adelaide, Fertility Society of Australia and New Zealand Conference on the Gold Coast, and the World Congress on Endometriosis in Edinburgh. 

I was privileged to be asked to speak at Fertility Nurses Australasia about an area that I am passionate about. This happened to be the ever-expanding field of ongoing research in the Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). It was lovely to see such enthusiasm for the day both from the nurses and the organisers.

I believe it goes without saying that now we are all looking forward to spending some valuable time with family and friends. So from all of us at Repromed, we wish you a wonderful summer break (with lots of sunshine!) and we look forward to seeing you again when we’re back on Monday 15th January, 2024. 

Ngā mihi o te Kirihimete me te Tau Hou! Wishing you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

 

Dr Devashana Gupta

Megan Black

Nurse Manager

DipNurs

Megan leads the nursing team through the continually changing face of IVF. She works in a multidisciplinary team, providing the essential organization between the doctors and laboratory and ensuring communication between all departments.

Megan started her IVF nursing career in the United Kingdom, working in two large London clinic’s before returning to New Zealand. She is also the Secretary of Fertility Nurses of Australasia.

I love working with people and see nursing as a vocation, not a job. I usually spend my downtime absorbed in a good book and planning my next travel adventure.
