As an aspiring fertility worker I’m interested in all sides of fertility, and used to spend a long time reading blogs (and still do) about IVF, assisted fertility and couples trying to conceive.
Along this new career journey I’ve become a little obsessed with finding others who are fertility workers, as well as simply reading from patients undergoing treatment for infertility.
I have not yet attempted to conceive a child, and I am not someone needing IVF, or who has ever had to experience this area of healthcare before finding my interest in them.
Now though, I feel I need to share this gem I discovered not long ago on Twitter.
I’m almost certain everyone undergoing any kind of infertility treatment or anyone has a career in this area will know what this is all about, but I thought I’d share anyway.
It discusses female infertility, male infertility, unexplained infertility, IVF, IUI, care you receive, how to choose a fertility centre and everything else in between.
To educate and empower you, on your next steps regarding your fertility. With expert interviews & real stories from men & women sharing their #TTC journeys from around the globe.
I have been hooked on it since I found it last Sunday, and I hope anyone out there interested in their fertility will too. It’s not just for people undergoing IVF, or just for women, it’s for men, women, young people, older people or anything thinking about their fertility or even contemplating a life without children.
I myself have Generalised Anxiety Disorder, and fully appreciate how difficult asking the questions you need to ask can be. Google is confusing sometimes, and when you simply want an honest, current and crucially an expert answer to a question it can be very frustrating.
This way, you can listen to that expert advice along with friendly voices chatting about all the topics you may be concerned about if you’re TTC, considering IVF or in the midst of discovering what your fertility means.
Natalie, one of the hosts of the podcast, specifically states there are ways of asking them questions directly through social media and other channels. Plus, any stories you have about your fertility or journey could even become its own podcast show if you have something to share which may help others out there.
Host number 2, Kate, is a fertility consultant nurse and brings the experience she has into the podcast making sure to give medical insight and expert views. In addition, they often bring in niche and very specific experts in topics that effect the global fertility scene to talk and answer questions.
With over 200 episodes available there’s something for all, so I hope you enjoy as much as I have!
