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. My episodes range from interviews with men and women I have met online who are willing to share their journey to lead consultants and embryologists in clinics I visit, along with other experts within the fertility world.
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 have now produced 70 episodes so I’ve spoken to a lot of people and I feel I have a good understanding of the issues that continue to affect people struggling to conceive.
To date the podcast has a global reach and has had almost 50,000 downloads. The Fertility Podcast is now offering a unique opportunity for sponsorship and advertising.
