This Is Infertility: Episode 6

Benjie & Jimmy: Becoming Daddy and Papa

“This Is Infertility,” a podcast by Progyny, is hosted by a different voice who brings their unique point of view to the complex and ever-changing world of infertility. Our hosts are licensed clinical social workers, patient care advocates, clinical psychiatrists, reproductive endocrinologists, fertility patients and other experts in the world of fertility. We fuse narrative storytelling with experience and science to give listens a new perspective on what it’s really like to through the infertility journey.

Surrogacy can allow same-sex male couples, or single men, to have a biological child by using the intended parent’s sperm with the assistance of an egg donor and gestational carrier. We hear from Benjie and Jimmy Hyde, who found themselves at a crossroads when their original egg donor was unable to produce embryos.

Today’s host is Justin Alvis, Manager of Member Services, Progyny. Guests include Benjie and Jimmy Hyde, and Shelly Marsh, Marketing Director at Men Having Babies.
