#54: Do Your Own Research
For the last 18 months, I have watched the world as I know it turn upside down. Civil rights and liberties have been stripped from the people, as quickly and effortlessly as this ‘novel coronavirus’ appeared on our doorsteps in January 2020.
Let me start by giving you a pre-frame here, what I am about to discuss with you today is based on my own research, I encourage you to do the same, research, research and then do some more research.
#53: Dr Sonya Jessup
Recently I caught up with the wonderful Dr Sonya Jessup to discuss all things fertility and in particular, fertility treatment for the over 40 year old woman.
Sonya shared her own fertility story with me and we talked about her fantastic new clinic – Shire IVF – and also the many Gynaecology options on offer for women, including botox.
#52: How to Cope with Bad News?
When you think about your progress so far trying to have a baby, there are a lot of setbacks. It starts when you first realise that things are not working as you had planned. Having a baby is supposed to be the most natural thing in the world, until it isn’t!
The months of disappointment soon become years for some women and at some point, the whole process becomes a blur of let downs, setbacks and bad news.
So, what can you do to build up your ‘Fertility Resilience’ muscle?
#51: Laser Acupuncture
I had the pleasure of speaking with Lorne Brown who is a Doctor of Chinese Medicine at the Acubalance Wellness Centre in Vancouver Canada.
We talked about Laser Acupuncture which is used for fertility clients and also those who are trying to conceive naturally. Older patients, PCOS, Endometriosis and Sperm Motility are just some of the treatments options available at the centre.
Laser Acupuncture is officially called low level laser therapy (LLLT) or photobiomodulation.
Semen Analysis and Sperm Preparation Basics
What is involved with looking at sperm? What things are important and why? And, how is sperm prepared for IUI, IVF and ICSI?
This episode on the sperm basics was requested by the wonderful Mary Vietzke.
You can get all the latest updates by following my Facebook page IVF Coaching Clinic or my Instagram page.
I hope you enjoy this 'basics' episode, if you have any questions I would love to hear from you.
Time is our most precious resource and yet, we are slaves to the masters of the clock and the calendar. However, have you ever noticed that it is the busiest people who are also the most productive? What is their secret? How do they seem to have it all together? And how on earth can they manage this whilst trying to get pregnant?
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.
