This is Infertility: Episode 27

Becoming a Single Parent by Choice

Welcome to our second season of This is Infertility!

“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.

Choice can really make all the difference. Tania always wanted to be a mother but realized she was running out of time. So, she decided to take matters into her own hands and through her journey connected with a community of like-minded women called Single Mother’s by Choice. In this episode, we hear about Tania’s decision and journey to becoming a single parent by choice. We also hear about the importance of having a community and what it takes to run one. Today’s host is Melissa Maldonado, Implementation Manager, at Progyny.
