    Episode 2- Shaun @knackered_knackers - male factor infertility

    Episode 2- Shaun @knackered_knackers - male factor infertility

    In this episode we chat to Shaun aka @knackered_knackers. He started his account last year and sharing his own story has been a great support to men who are experiencing male factor infertility. He chats very openly with us about his diagnosis of azoospermia and how he and his wife went on to use a sperm donor to conceive their twins.

    Apologies for the shite sound quality again but we have learnt our lesson and promise future episodes will be better. This guy is a bloody gem and we know that so many of you (men and women) will find this episode really helpful. Happy listening and please head over to give Shaun a cheeky follow.

    Episode 1 - Louise - unplanned pregnancy, ectopic

    Episode 1 - Louise - unplanned pregnancy, ectopic

    Louise talks to us very openly about her unplanned pregnancy which ended at 6 weeks with emergency surgery. We talk about the conflicting emotions that surround unplanned pregnancies. Unplanned does not mean unwanted. She went on to have another miscarriage after this and felt differently about that loss. Louise shares honest thoughts and feelings with us (most of which she has not told her nearest and dearest) in an attempt to help others feel less alone in their experiences. Thank you Louise, we know this will help so many.

    The key is lab-grown diamonds. Yes, lab-grown. Growing them in a lab means no mining, no unjust labour, and no guilt. We believe this sustainable way of producing diamonds could be the future of the jewellery industry – because these diamonds don’t cost the earth – both literally and figuratively.  Competitively priced compared to a mined stone, their new Gentle Diamond range, aims to be completely carbon neutral.

Who else is talking about TMFR?

I only found this podcast a few days ago but have already listened to hours of episodes. 7 weeks ago had to terminate for medical reasons at 19 weeks after trying to get pregnant for 2 years. I have never felt so alone and acutely sad. This show has really helped me hear the stories of other women who have been through the same. TMFR is not talked about and I have struggled to find the words to share my experience with friends, even those close friends who knew I was pregnant. I think they could do a whole season of just TMFR episodes and I’d listen to them all. Thanks Laura and Bex for being brave and real and funny and sad. I’d also highly recommend these episodes to friends and family of people going through TMFR to learn how difficult it is and how they can support.

Great Listen for Friends and Family

Although, I haven’t suffered loss like this myself, I find this to be a great resource so that I can be more tactfully empathetic to those around me who have. After becoming a mom, I found out just how common miscarriage, still birth, and newborn/infant loss are. Many of my closest friends and family have experienced something like this and this podcast helps me to understand what they are going through. Thank you for being so vulnerable and open so that we can all learn. ❤️

Seriously the worst gang, that I’m happy I found

I thought writing this review would be simple, but I’m finding it a lot harder to put all my thoughts and emotions into words.

But that has been how I feel a lot now - after experiencing an early miscarriage. This podcast has helped me tremendously. When I can’t find the words, I can just listen. And listening to these ladies and so many of their guests has helped me find my words again.

It’s inspiring to hear everyone on this podcast be so open. I can’t imagine the courage it takes to share these stories of loss and recovery. I hope to one day be as brave as everyone on this podcast and publicly share my story outside of my inner circle, but for now, I will continue to listen. 🤎💜
