This is Infertility: Episode 32

Endometriosis & Activism: Endo What?

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.

On the surface today’s episode is about two women. One, Shannon Cohn, an award-winning filmmaker, attorney, and activist, and the other, Mary Alice Hatch, an endometriosis and women’s health advocate. But it’s really an episode about almost 200 million women – that’s the estimated number of women who suffer from endometriosis in the world. Shannon and Mary Alice are co-founders of an endometriosis awareness organization called Endo What? In the third episode of our special Endo series, we hear how this organization was created, and how they’re changing the way we talk about endometriosis. Today’s host is Taylor Burbach, Patient Care Supervisor at Progyny.

Guests include: Shannon Cohn and Mary Alice Hatch from Endo What?
