The Fertility Podcast

Once our PM series was underway, I was approached by Natalie Silverman from ‘The Fertility Podcast’ to ask if she could interview me about our work so far.

It felt like a strange request… it was my job to interview people about their lives.  What would I say?

Turns out, I had a lot to say.  In fact, I didn’t take a breath!  As you can hear:

Thank you to Natalie for finding me, and asking me to be a part of your fantastic podcast series.

Surviving Christmas Webinar

Christmas can be a hideous time for people who can’t have children.

In December 2017, I was approached by Tasha Jennings, a Naturopath and Nutritionist from Australia whose personal struggle with fertility prompted her to help others trying to conceive.

Tasha asked me if I would be her expert guest for a webinar session entitled “Surviving Christmas with Infertility”.  So one morning before work, I sat and had a chat with this lovely lady from across the pond.

Thank you for having me Tasha, I look forward to the next one.

Our interview with Jeremy Vine on BBC Radio 2

“I don’t think we’ll ever accept the idea that we won’t meet our own biological baby…”

On our fifth wedding anniversary we spoke to Jeremy Vine on Radio 2.  A big deal for both of us, of course – he’s a legend.

Jeremy wanted to know exactly what it’s like for a couple to face many years of fertility problems.

So we told him:

We felt strong as we told Jeremy our story… until we started taking calls.

One brave lady called Sharon had not only faced five rounds of IVF, but during the treatment her husband passed away.

It broke my heart, and made me realise how lucky we are.

Bio News Review

The best review we received so far.  Thank you Bio News.

“As a whole, the radio series achieves what it sets out to do. It offers listeners a window into the tumultuous world of assisted reproduction and demonstrates just how pervasive the desire to start a family can be when all attempts to conceive naturally fail. It is open and honest and isn’t afraid to shine a spotlight on the darker emotions that can descend when future plans seem unattainable.

It is very easy as a listener to become invested in Sophie and Jonny’s journey and I would thoroughly recommend the series to anyone who has experienced their own fertility struggles. The series would also be of benefit to anyone wanting to gain an understanding of how best to support friends or family through fertility treatment.”
