Information and Inspiration
I previously wrote a review about a year and a half ago that was mostly positive, but a little snarky. I confess that I felt a little jealous of Dr. Crawford’s success and eye-roll-y about all the (what I perceived to be) fan-girly reviews. But that was about me and I no longer want that review stay up.
Dr. Crawford is doing great things. I wish that this resource was available when I was going through my own (in)fertility journey. I still find the infertility community and conversations fascinating and enjoy listening to this podcast and following her other social media channels. And I’ve definitely gotten some inspiration about my own career path (I’m not a doctor or in the medical field) and ideas about how I might use social media.
I owe you an apology. Dr. Crawford, you’re doing great. I’m sorry I was a hater. You keep up the educational and inspirational content, and I will go check myself into the jelly school in Aurora :)
Helps me be my own advocate during my IVF journey
Dr. Crawford is super knowledgeable but delivers the information for the everyday layman (lay-woman?). It has helped me understand my IVF journey, and I can also ask more probing, intelligent questions to my doctor and nurse. I was introduced to the podcast by my in-laws who found it when they wanted to learn about what I was going through. Highly recommend it to loved ones of women and couples going through fertility treatments.
I absolutely love listening to Natalie. She is able to talk so tactfully regarding sensitive topics and solely provides information so you can make the best & most informed decisions for your health and your lifestyle. I’m hoping she can include an interview/episode with a single mom by choice in the future.
