    • Alternative Health

Welcome to another episode of the hormone heartbeat podcast! 

Today’s episode in my fertility series is all about knowing your options through fertility treatments. And guest shares her journey motherhood using reproductive technologies, including third-party reproduction.

Meta Getman is a mom to 3-year-old twins after 4 rounds of IUI, 3 rounds of fresh IVF and one round of IVF using donor eggs.  With a heart for serving others and passion for people to know they are not alone, Meta uses what she learned on her journey to help others.  She helps family-focused, responsible, and relationship-driven women and couples facing infertility and using third party reproduction so they can make thoughtful, confident, and informed decisions about how to best build their family without anxiety, fear, misinformation, judgment, rejection or worry about how their choices will impact their future child and family. In addition to co-founding a community in Minneapolis/St. Paul of families who used a donor to build their families, Meta continues to drive change in the infertility community. Meta volunteers with RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association and her husband have spoken at the RESOLVE Midwest Family Building Summit, one of the largest gatherings of professionals and those struggling to build their families in the United States.
