Such a fresh perspective on IVF hell

This podcast has taken so much pressure of IVF. I am starting my first cycle and I like research. However most information you find about IVF online is horror stories and bitterness. I adore this podcast. It is funny, sweet, emotional, and so entertaining.
I would listen even if I wasn’t staring down the barrel of IVF.
Thanks Matt and Doree!

Interesting banter, until....

Honest recount of life while dealing with the day to day reality (struggles) of infertility. It's more therapeutic listening than IVF information or resources so good for those not even going through infertility / IVF. I'm over the dog constantly interrupting but other than that all good.

As noted by the previous reviewers the IVF section of this podcast is fabulous and worth 5 stars

Spoiler alert: once they get pregnant stop listening, it becomes so boring rambling where they barley mention the pregnancy. It’s an utter waste of time where they just talk about their mundane lives with promotions for anything they are try to sell you.

Honest & Hilarious

I just love this podcast. I'm not at all in the IVF world, but find this so informative, funny, honest and sometimes raw.
