This podcast could not have come at a better time for myself and my husband. It’s become a spring board for us to have some difficult and life changing decisions. I have found it to be a source of comfort too as I also have endometriosis and low ovarian reserve, we’ve had two rounds of IVF and have decided to stop. We are now exploring adoption for us. But we both wanted to say a massive thank you for your honesty and bravery. We think you are awesome!
The long road to baby
I only planned to listen to a couple of episodes and before I knew it I’d listened to all the episodes in one go. The intelligent and honest approach to a painful journey sets this podcast apart. Highly recommend.
A must listen for all health professionals!
A few weeks ago I decided to immerse myself in fertility podcasts as I really wanted to understand the emotions, decisions, fear, heartache and sometimes the laughter experienced by my patients. Sophie’s podcast is incredible. I learned so much and feel that this is a must listen for anyone working in the field of fertility. Sit back (or if you’re me, do the ironing!), immerse yourself, learn and enjoy.
