This is Infertility

There is nothing more fundamental to life than the urge to continue it. But while it may be the most natural thing in the world, childbirth is far from the easiest and no two fertility journeys are the same. For that reason, we are breaking from the typical podcast form. Each episode is hosted by a different voice who brings their own 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, real fertility patients, and others who are, in one way or another, experts in the world of fertility. We fuse narrative storytelling with experience and science to give you a new perspective on what it’s really like to go through this journey.

Episode 3: #SaytheFword: It’s Time to Break the Silence

Fertility is not a dirty word. In January, Celmatix, the next generation women’s health company, launched the #SaytheFword campaign to shatter stigmas and empower women to talk about fertility. It’s time to break the silence and support each other. Today’s host is Selena Campbell, a Patient Care Advocate at Progyny.

Guests include: Karin Ajmani, President at Progyny, Angie Lee, Chief Product Officer at Celmatix, and millennial women in New York City.
