Emily shares her multiple attempts resulting in ectopic pregnancies, an IUI and IVF.
Content Warning: Explicit descriptions of miscarriage and some curse words.
We recorded this episode before final news that Roe v Wade was being overturned and it has never been clearer that we cannot have this podcast about infertility without also addressing the dangers of removing people's access to reproductive health services.
Side note from Emily: I recognize my extreme privilege in having access to medical intervention while trying to have a successful pregnancy. I do not believe anyone should have to share their story in an attempt to explain how catastrophic this is for anyone needing help. And finally, I know the loss of protections from Roe v Wade will disproportionately impact black and brown people and that it is in our collective best interest to continue fighting for reproductive justice.
