Bringing Levity and Laughter to Infertility

I found this podcast shortly after my 2nd IUI got cancelled and we were making the decision to move ahead with IVF. Cassie sheds light on the (very daunting) process in a way that is informative and accessible. The guests she has chosen are open and honest. Even from across an ocean here in the States, I feel like I’ve gained a friend in the IVF process. I look forward to Wednesday each week!
