October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. It is estimated that almost 1 in 4 pregnancies result in miscarriage. Despite the high prevalence, the condition remains a topic that is still not talked about enough. In honor of this month, we are dedicating two episodes to spread awareness and shed light on a condition called Recurrent Pregnancy Loss.
In the second and final episode of the two-part series, we hear from Dr. Zev Williams, Chief of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Columbia University Fertility Center. He dedicated his life to helping individuals and couples who are suffering from pregnancy loss, both on a clinical as well as research level.
When Dr. Williams first started his career, Recurrent Pregnancy Loss wasn’t understood very well. He shares how the condition came to be more researched in the field of reproductive medicine, and what we know about it today. In this episode, Dr. Williams takes us on a deep dive into the causes, treatments, and even the future of this devastating condition.
