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 41: Face of Infertility: Alaina Bos

When Alaina Bos found herself struggling to conceive after being diagnosed with both endometriosis and PCOS she felt frustrated and alone.

So, she started a project called, Face of Infertility. Today’s host is Carl Martinez, part of the Provider Relations Team at Progyny.
