Not walking, but ready!

My daughter is almost eleven months old. She has been ready to walk since about six and a half months, but hasn't started. I've done tons of research and talked to my doctor. My doctor said she was too advanced and needed to slow down anyways, and I've done everything the Internet has suggested. I know she will walk when she's ready, but fear of falling has seemed to really slow her down! Has anyone experienced this? If so, what do you suggest?

She's only 11 months old. Don't push her. Wanting her to be ahead of everyone else is natural, but pushing her to do something isn't going to help her. It is well in the range of normal for a child to wait to walk until 18 months. Give her time, take a breath, and just play normally. Chill.
