This podcast made me a better, more compassionate person

There are a lot of people who listen to this podcast who have no connection to IVF, and I'm one of them. I love Matt and Doree's realness; listening to them talk about their daily lives, while so different from mine, helps me know I'm not alone, not to mention hearing from all the listeners too. As to how it's made me a better person, I find myself far more compassionate toward people who struggle with infertility, which was not a problem I'd ever thought about before (not wanting kids myself), as well as young mothers and even kids. Not to say that I was cold or intolerant before, I'd just never had need to think about people in these positions. The other day I went to visit my friend with a new baby and felt I could understand better how hard it all must have been, from pregnancy to now daily life with an infant, and with all that in mind I even enjoyed holding the baby more than I ever had. I've never had a dog so also have learned a lot about taking care of dogs! I love podcasts where people talk about their daily lives and true feelings, and feel honored that Matt and Doree let us share their struggles and successes.

Newly obsessed

Found this podcast from Death Sex & Money and am now listening from the beginning (21 episodes in a weekend)! Although I don’t plan to have kids, I’m learning a lot and love Matt & Doree’s dynamic. Only 200+ episodes to go!
