    Secrets Secrets are No Fun...

    Kaela & Sarah are discussing harmful situations plaguing the infertility community.  They discuss a fertility nurse who stole fentanyl, replacing it with saline, leaving patients undergoing egg retrieval surgery in excruciating pain.  They comment on her sentencing, how she was treated, and how her victims were portrayed.  They also discuss the dilemma of misrepresentation in social media.  If you know someone isn't being truthful, should you say something?


     


    Lisa Ransome joins the podcast again to talk about self-care and what it means to proactively take care of our mental and physical health.

Listen to this!

This podcast is fantastic! It is informative and funny. None of my close friends or family have done IVF, so listening to Sarah and Kaela makes me feel less isolated. Thank you ladies - all the way from Australia!
