Welcome to ALL THAT TRIGGERS - we are your hosts Zoe & SJ.

We are two Melbourne mummas who have turned our low-key car therapy conversations into a supportive, informative and at times, cynical podcast!

We are of the mindset: if you don’t laugh, you’ll FKN cry! So while this will be an ‘enlightening’ platform to discuss all things infertility like mature adults, we won’t hold back!

    Dealing with Grief

    Dealing with Grief

    Grief can appear in many forms and affect us in different ways.

    In this episode, the girls discuss the grief they have endured and how they continue to deal with it.

    Zoe's grief was the loss of embryos, time and basically the life that could have been lived but instead consumed with rounds of IVF, monthly disappointment and uncertainty. SJ suffered the loss of her baby Charlotte at 21 weeks and continues to live her 'new normal'.

    The IVF Process

    The IVF Process

    In this episode Zoe & SJ go back to 'basics' and chat about the actual IVF process.

    No two cycles are ever the same and depending on your situation they can vary considerably! Zoe & SJ take you through step by step what you could expect from your cycle and share their personal experiences.

    SJ chats about her 2 cycles, with the first devastatingly leaving her with the dangerous OHSS and no embryos!! She was fortunate enough to get her rainbow baby on her second round.
    Zoe, a somewhat veteran at IVF, endured 9 cycles with various protocols! Her journey was long and filled with lots of tears, disappointments and POAS!

    Infertility Acronyms

    Infertility Acronyms

    If IVF wasn't enough to wrap your head around, we now have a whole new language that comes with it.
    In this episode we explain all the complex and somewhat confusing acronyms that have been sprawling your social media!
    Let's be honest you need a degree to properly understand them all and some don't even make sense. From TTC to ICSI we have you covered.

    BONUS EPISODE: ALL THINGS BEAUTY.

    We thought we would take a quick break and lighten things up with a bonus episode featuring another shared passion of ours - all things beauty! ⁣

    We chat about our favourite skincare brands, what our go-to make-up products are, Zoe shares some of her most loved professional kit products and we have a giggle at SJ's (the #selfproclaimedbeautybuff) questionable techniques! ⁣

    We hope you love this one as much as we do!

Love love love

I love listening to the two of you! I have never experienced infertility issues, I have two kids under 3. I just love hearing your conversations about every day life, and how you both keep things so honest and real. Would love more on makeup, fashion, your beauty routines etc 💖💖
