52. Fertility and The Whole Person - A Doctor's Perspective The After 30 Podcast

    • Society & Culture

Our 30’s are often our most pressured, desired, and common time to have children. The journey is an incomparable experience that can be filled with hope, beauty, discomfort, loss, purpose, and hopefully love and a joy like none other. Our focus today is on understanding what’s going on in our bodies in that overused “clock is ticking” metaphor and on a journey with so many elements out of our control, what we do have control over.



Episode Notes

Dr. Meivys Garcia, an IVF doctor assistant medical director at Markham Fertility Center gives us the facts to help us better understand infertility. With a medical resumé and list of awards that’s intimidating to read out, Meivys was also an IVF patient herself while being an IVF doctor - which she indicates was a humbling and grounding experience. She knows that infertility never leaves you if you’ve experienced it,  she knows that science isn’t everything, and she knows you have to look at the whole person when considering thier IVF journey.
