Having gone through years of trying to conceive, and following a devastating miscarriage, when Izzy & Harry's second round of IVF was successful, Izzy felt strongly that the couple should be open about what they had been through. 'I know all too well the emotions and challenges you experience when going through fertility issues and how lonely it can feel. I feel passionately about keeping the conversations going about Fertility and my podcast ‘Let’s Talk Fertility’ aims to do just that.'
Izzy has written about her own experiences in Best Selling book Dare To Dream and remains fascinated by the subject of fertility. By exploring other people’s paths to parenthood and talking to holistic and medical experts, Izzy hopes her podcast will give listeners a fully informed and emotionally supportive space, as well an introduction to a community whose support she has found to be invaluable.

I’ve experienced quite a rough few years after our son was stillborn at 40 weeks. Following his death, we had 2 miscarriages and no failed IVF cycles. We have a beautiful 4.5 year old and I continue to long for a living sibling for her. This podcast has given me some peace and also insight into the bigger “wellness” picture.
Thank you ❤️
I just want to say a huge “thank you”, Izzy. I know you’re only two episodes in, but I have so thoroughly enjoyed these two episodes. They speak right to my heart being in the middle of unexplained infertility. Your holistic view is so refreshing and so important. I can’t wait for the next episodes!
