I launched The Fertility Podcast in September 2014, once pregnant from fertility treatment. Whilst there is a wealth of information in the form of blogs about infertility and amazing communities offering support on twitter and facebook, I couldn’t find a UK produced podcast. Yes there have been discussions on BBC Radio 4’s Women’s Hour, BBC 5 Live LBC and local BBC stations about IVF and Fertility treatment and I also found content produced in the US, but nothing like what I was thinking of making. Plus I was fed up of all the sensationalised headlines in the tabloid press!
So, The Fertility Podcast was created. My aim was to create a safe place for men and women to find out more about issues affecting their route to parenthood from speaking to a wide range of people. I’ve released over 90 episodes with interviews from leading fertility experts and men and women I have met online, willing to share their journey.
I’m no expert, however I believe I’m in as good a place as anyone to share my experience having been through treatment and having spoken to so many people affected by infertility I feel I have a good understanding of the issues that continue to affect people struggling to conceive and in a time where more and more people are struggling to have a family without help and funding on the NHS is being cut – people deserve to fully understand their options.
To date the podcast has a global reach and has had over 80,000 downloads. As well as making my own content I’m now producing podcasts for others within the fertility world who realise how powerful audio is. To date I have released a podcast series for Surrogacy UK and OvuSense.
The Fertility Podcast is now offering a unique opportunity for sponsorship and advertising. If you are looking to speak to a niche group of people with one common goal, to have a family of their own and would like to find out more about the opportunities available please complete the form below.
