Infertility is a topic too often ignored.
The mission of this podcast is to bring inspiration, facts, tips, education, support and most importantly a VOICE to all things fertility so that those listening feel empowered and proud to take control of their journey.
Just because fertility is hard, doesn't mean it can't be fabulous.

What No One Tells You About IVF Egg Retrievals & Frozen Embryo Transfers
There is only so much a doctor/nurse who have never experienced these procedures can tell you. Only warriors who have been through it can dish the real deets. After going through 5 retrievals & 5 transfers & talking to SO many of you through Fab Fertility & Fertility Rally, I feel very equipped to cover this topic. This was by far one of the most voted for topics when I asked you all what you wanted to hear in future episodes. I hope this episode leaves you educated &/or shaking your head, YES!

Absolutely love this podcast!
My husband and I have been struggling with fertility for a couple years now. I don’t know many people that have or are going through infertility so I figured I’d see what podcasts are out there. I stumbled upon this one and absolutely love it. Blair is so awesome and real about her experience. It is just what I needed. If you’re going through infertility or just want general information on infertility this is the best podcast you could listen to!
I’ve been listening to this podcast throughout my IVF journey. We’ve now done 2 retrievals and 1 FET and have loved listening to this while working and while on my daily walks. This podcast has helped me understand the process better and has motivated me to be a better advocate for myself.
Amazing podcast! One of my favs.
I love this podcast for so many reasons. One, I’ve learned so much on here about what to say to people struggling with infertility.I’ve learned to be more empathetic to those struggling. I have learned how to help others, especially a ton of my family and friends going through infertility. Two, this podcast is so funny and by far my favorite are the FFIF episodes with you and Alex. I look forward to those every week and listen to them on my walks. And lastly, I am a doctor, and I’ve learned so much through all these episodes. I know how I can help my patients going through infertility that much more. I have so many friends going through this and so many family members, this is the main reason why I listen to this podcast (aside from my own struggles with ttc) and follow many of these accounts, so that I can learn how to be there for them as well as my patients. It has opened my eyes to the very famous “you need to wait 1 year of trying before getting testing” rhetoric that I’m currently trying to change. If you want to listen to something witty, fun, entertaining and informative, look no further and listen to this podcast! So well done.
