This is Infertility: Episode 16

Jason and Alvin: Building Equity in Equality

“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.

Jason Rudman and his husband Alvin utilized a gestational surrogate to start their family, and then, two years later, utilized another one to continue their family. Along the way, Jason used his voice to change his employer’s paternity leave policy and ended up helping more than just his immediate family.

Today’s host is Salaia DaCruz, Sr. Account Manager at Progyny. Guests include Jason Rudman.
