27 episodes

In this unfiltered podcast about infertility, Brooklyn-based journalist and mom-of-two Ali Prato, who went through IVF herself, talks to women—and some men—about the messy, frustrating, painful, heartbreaking, absurd and sometimes hilarious journey to have a baby. Or in some cases, to not have a baby. Each episode tells a different story, getting real about miscarriages, egg freezing, sperm donors, adoption, infertility depression, secondary infertility, surrogacy, endometriosis, IUIs, acupuncture, nutrition, relationship drama, embryonic genetic testing, money issues, that crazy jealousy you feel when you see someone else with a baby bump, and so much more. We’ll cover the happy endings, the soul-crushingly sad ones, and the ones still in limbo.

Therapeutic and Encouraging

I cannot day enough good things about this podcast. Hearing these issues being discussed in such a normal, conversational way is so refreshing but hearing other women talk about how they’re feeling and what they’re struggling with genuinely is helpful if you’re struggling with your own emotions. Also a big shout out for recognizing that secondary infertility happens and is still painful, I really appreciate it!

Naomi’s story

Such a sad story and yet she was so brave to tell us the entire journey details and all. I couldn’t help thinking about the differences in her experience being in England compared to our messed up medical insurance issues here: she wasn’t worried about covering the costs of all the medical tests and treatments because healthcare is a human right there, but instead she was more concerned about paying for accommodations while visiting the hospital. And here, women are faced with enormous medical bills, struggles with insurance companies, yet, we have free lodging at places like the Ronald McDonald Houses. Just weird observance.

Lifesaver

This podcast is a lifesaver- so honest and makes the torture that is this process a little bit easier. So so happy it exists!
