    Amy & Her Partner Froze Her Eggs, Then They Separated

    Amy & Her Partner Froze Her Eggs, Then They Separated

    For anyone on the IVF journey, your frozen embryos are your lifeline if you want more children down the line. Embryo freezing gives you more chances to fall pregnant later, without having to do another cycle of hormone stimulation. 

    But what happens when, for whatever reason - maybe you’ve gone through a divorce or you’ve completed your family - and now you no longer need those embryos? What do you do or, better yet, what can you do with them? 

    Our guest today, Amy, went through this and she admittedly didn’t really know how to deal with it, so she paid the storage fees for years before making a decision...

    SPECIAL THANKS 

    To Amy for coming on the show and sharing her family's story!

    Trudy Couldn’t Conceive, Then She Found A Surrogate

    Trudy Couldn’t Conceive, Then She Found A Surrogate

    Get Me Pregnant is Mamamia's podcast that makes understanding assisted fertility easy. Consider this your no-BS guide! 

    Surrogacy seems like something reserved for celebrities. From Kim Kardashian - West to Cameron Diaz, it feels far out of reach for most regular couples doing assisted fertility. 

    So it's safe to say it's something most regular people never think they'll do. 

    Our guest today Trudy, had the same reservations. But after a pregnancy complication, Trudy and her husband were told surrogacy was one of the only options they had left to start a family. 

    Trudy joins host Leigh Campbell to share the incredible story of how her daughter Bonnie came to be, how they found a surrogate and what happens when your surrogate gets caught overseas in a global pandemic.
     
    And as always, Dr Manuela Toledo joins us for Fact or Fiction, surrogacy edition. 


    SPECIAL THANKS 

    To Trudy for coming on the show and sharing her family's story!

    Why Conceiving Baby Number 2 Isn't Always Easy

    Why Conceiving Baby Number 2 Isn't Always Easy

    Get Me Pregnant is Mamamia's podcast that makes understanding assisted fertility easy. Consider this your no-BS guide! 

    What happens when you start looking to expand the family but things aren't happening as quickly as you'd hoped?

    Secondary infertility is really common. In fact, it's arguably becoming more common than primary infertility. 

    Our guest today, Liz jokes that she and her husband didn't even have sex, they fell pregnant that quickly. So it's fair to say they were pretty shocked when baby number two wasn't happening as quickly as they'd hoped. 

    Host, Leigh Campbell and Liz have a very honest and raw conversation about the emotional and physical toll of secondary infertility, as two women going through it. 

    Plus Dr Manuela Toledo joins us for Fact or Fiction. Manuela drops by to debunk some of the myths and misconceptions about trying for baby number two. 

    SPECIAL THANKS 

    A huge thank you to Liz for coming on the show and sharing her story!

US financials

Just a heads up to my US friends - it’s mentioned that the US has “no financial support whatsoever” and that is incorrect. There are many financial options - programs, grants, and a large amount of insurances are taken by clinics. Thank you for this podcast!
