If you’re currently in fertility treatment and seeking a bit of additional support, podcasts can provide a wealth of super accessible information as well as the benefit of shared experience (all while safe and socially-distanced!).
The best fertility-focused podcasts provide an array of perspectives and engaging stories, and they can also help us feel like we’re not “going through it” alone. After a trying 2020, we can use all the support we can get!
There’s a podcast out there for just about everyone—for those seeking to understand why they can’t conceive, those going through fertility treatments, those who’ve experienced losses, and every experience in between. Whether they’re 30 minutes or an hour-and-a-half long, these carefully cultivated and communicated stories can facilitate some peace of mind and even sometimes a good laugh (an absolute must in our book!).
Here are some of our favorite fertility podcasts regarding education, support, or even just a friendly voice who truly understands what the fertility journey is like:
Each episode is hosted by a different voice, with a unique perspective (Licensed Clinical Workers, fertility patients, clinical psychologists, reproductive endocrinologists, patient care advocates, etc.) Description: “There is nothing more fundamental to life than the urge to continue it, but while it may be the most natural thing in the world, childbirth is far from the easiest. We fuse narrative storytelling with experience and science to give you a new perspective of what it’s really like to go through this fertility journey. This is Infertility, a podcast from Progyny.”
Description: “This podcast launched in 2014, once Natalie was pregnant with her first child after having fertility treatment. If you’ve found your route to parenthood hasn’t been straight forward, this podcast is for you. From IVF and ICSI to secondary infertility, surrogacy, or adoption hear stories from others who have been through something similar to you. You might be involuntary childless. Whatever your situation, know you are NOT ALONE. Natalie speaks to leading fertility experts at clinics all over the world, well-being coaches and nutritionists and companies helping to fund your treatment as well as support networks such as Fertility Network UK and Fertility.”
Description: “The Fertility Warriors Podcast is here to help women survive the rocky road of trying to conceive. In this podcast, Robyn Birkin interviews other fertility warriors, and shares advice and tips on how to conceive, how to navigate the world of fertility treatments and how to be your best and healthiest self. Robyn is the author of Screw Infertility, the core educator for The Fertility Warrior Intensive Course, and the My Missing Piece Membership. You can find her at www.robynbirkin.com.”
Description: “This podcast helps keep up with trends in the field of reproductive health. Griffin Jones hosts a wide array of those in the fertility community including reproductive endocrinologists, clinical professionals, patient stories, etc.”
Description: “In this unfiltered podcast about infertility, Brooklyn-based journalist and mom-of-two Ali Prato, who went through IVF herself, talks to women—and some men—about the messy, frustrating, painful, heartbreaking, absurd and sometimes hilarious journey to have a baby. Or in some cases, to not have a baby. Each episode tells a different story, getting real about miscarriages, egg freezing, sperm donors, adoption, infertility depression, secondary infertility, surrogacy, endometriosis, IUIs, acupuncture, nutrition, relationship drama, embryonic genetic testing, money issues, that crazy jealousy you feel when you see someone else with a baby bump, and so much more. We’ll cover the happy endings, the soul-crushingly sad ones, and the ones still in limbo.”
