The journey of infertility is complex for a number of reasons, but one factor that can often make or break your experience is the quality of care and support you recieve from your fertility clinic. It’s important to choose a clinic that is up to date with reproductive technology, had good IVF success rates, and doesn’t have complicated billing and insurance policies. However, the most crucial aspect of a clinic is if they are willing to go the extra mile to physically and emotionally support their clients throughout the process of fertility treatment.
In today’s episode, we hear from Heather Huhman, who endured a series of traumatic events throughout her journey with infertility, a few of which stemmed from the lack of quality care and support she received from her doctors. From being given little to no information on her diagnosis with endometriosis to experiencing a dangerous pregnancy after a round of IVF as a result of transferring multiple embryos, she reached an all-time low in her efforts to try and get pregnant.
But Heather wanted some good to come out of her pain, so she dedicated herself fulltime to helping others via her twice a week podcast, Beat Infertility. In this episode we’ll hear about her struggle, how she got through it, and why she says her podcast gave her the hope and perspective she needed to carry on.
