    #37: Genevieve Uys Interview

    In Australia the wait for donor oocytes in some fertility clinics is up to 3 years. The options for most people ttc is to ask friends or relatives, advertise themselves or use overseas companies to source oocytes for their long awaited child.

    Genevieve Uys was an oocyte donor herself and has 9 donor children around the world. After her experiences donating oocytes, she found herself in a unique position to create her own company to assist more families complete their dream of having a baby.

    #36: Dr Michelle Perugini

    This week I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr Michelle Perugini, Founder and CEO of Life Whisperer, which uses AI technology for embryo selection.

    Using AI to select the best embryos for transfer and freezing is improving pregnancy results and assisting embryologists at clinics around the world.

    Designed to be affordable for patients and with no set up fees or ongoing costs to the clinics, this technology is changing laboratory practice as we know it.

    #35: What is Family?

    #35: What is Family?

    What do you consider a family?
    Generally, when you ask someone what is a family, they will typically think of parents with children and extended family members, who are biologically related to them.
    However, a family can be made up of so much more than this ancient outdated definition. Families share common values, goals, emotional bonds and responsibilities. Mostly family members contribute to the wellbeing of others in the family unit.
    This topic comes up a great deal with clients.

    #34: Dr Kaylen Silverberg Interview

    This week I had the pleasure of talking with Dr Kaylen Silverberg.

    Kaylen is a board certified endocrinologist, obstetrician and gynaecologist and the Medical Director of Texas Fertility Centre.

    We talked about male fertility, what has changed, when should you have testing done, what can you do to prepare when ttc and the types of testing that you might expect.

    Men largely feel marginalised in the process of ttc, so opening up the conversation about male factors is an important one.

    #33: Dr Lynn Westphal Interview

    Dr Lynn Westphal is CMO at Kindbody, a new model for fertility health care.

    They have mobile clinics (the fertility bus and van) positioned in high traffic areas so women can pop in for a chat and organise a fertility assessment.

    Their primary group of patients is women seeking to freeze their oocytes, however they offer IVF cycles and a full range of fertility services.

    Lynn set up one of the first cyropreservation programs for oncology patients back in 1998 at Stanford University.

    #32: Perception is Projection in Relationships

    #32: Perception is Projection in Relationships

    This week I wanted to discuss a common pattern that we all use from time to time, projection. I don’t mean the obvious ones, such as getting stuck in traffic and coming home grumpy. Or having a tough meeting and taking your frustration out of your work colleagues … I am talking about the sneakier projections, the ones that build up over time. Once you get to know the clues, you will be able to spot these projections much sooner and take evasive action!

Straight To The Point!

This is just what we needed. My wife and I have been on a somewhat steep learning curve, myself especially...coming to grips with IVF and all that it entails. Sophia's podcast is full of fantastic information. I have listened to quite a few episodes of this in the car and have learned loads. Highly recommended listening indeed.

At Long Last!

My wife and I found out recently that we needed fertility treatment which came as a shock to be honest. I’ve been trying to come to terms with it and have been swamped with a lot of medical information but was looking for something more practical to deal with how we are feeling about everything. This podcast was a breath of fresh air. I stumbled upon it yesterday and I’m learning a lot more than what the doctors have told me and it’s really helping.
