TV, Radio, Podcasts

Honored to be interviewed for Beat Infertility, a fertility podcast I've enjoyed listening to for years.

I love dispelling myths about infertility and fertility treatment. Here's an interview with Kaci Aitchison form Q13Fox News Seattle where I discuss 3 common misconceptions about IVF.
"Does stress cause infertility?" Is one of the most common questions I hear every day. It's hard to tease part which comes first because struggling to complete your family is one of the most stressful and emotionally challenging experiences someone can have. Kaci Aitchison interviewed me for her piece on this important topic for Q13Fox News. Learn more on this topic from my piece for Huffington Post.
It was a privilege to talk to Kaci Aichinson from Q13FoxNews about something near and dear to me: recurrent miscarriage.

Through her willingness to share her own experience and report on many aspects of infertility, she is helping the millions of people that face this struggle every day.

One of my favorite interviews yet with friend and colleague Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh on her show, The Egg Whisperer.

We discussed miscarriage, environmental exposures and reproduction, acupuncture, testing, treatment and more. It's a jam-packed 30 minutes with a few laughs along the way. Enjoy watching!
I loved doing this Facebook Live Interview with Toronto-based acupuncturist and author, Mary Wong. In podcast #53 we discuss common misconceptions of miscarriage and highlight the role of men in miscarriage and emotional impact of recurrent pregnancy loss.

She has written a wonderful book, Pathways to Pregnancy, which combines helpful suggestions for optimizing fertility with personal stories from couples struggling to complete their families.

Back again on the Warm 106.9 Sunday morning radio show, "Inspirational Women," for an interview with acupuncturist, Stephanie Gianarelli.

We discuss all aspects of my book, Not Broken, and move towards removing the stigma surrounding miscarriage. Aired Sunday June 11, 2017. My favorite part is explaining to Kate why Mick Jagger can have a baby at 72 years old but women's eggs have an expiration date. It's all about genetics!
