Found this podcast years ago after our first failed round of IVF. It was like a breath of fresh air. I didn’t know hardly anyone IRL who had gone through similar infertility struggles. Still entertaining years (and babies) later.

We discuss how we're dealing with COVID-19. We also want to hear from you: how are you handling social distancing? If you have to go to work, what's that like?

This week we also hear a poem (!) about infertility (it's much better than it sounds), get an update from a listener who wrote in two weeks ago, and get some very helpful advice about navigating health insurance vis-a-vis IVF.

We revisit one of our favorite episodes this week.

Doree and Matt ring in the new year with a very special guest: their friend Marc, who's also using science to have a baby with his husband, Chris. Doree and Matt talk to Marc about selecting an egg donor and a surrogate, how much everything costs ($$$$), what it's like when things don't work out the way you planned, and how to stay sane during the process.

Found this podcast years ago after our first failed round of IVF. It was like a breath of fresh air. I didn’t know hardly anyone IRL who had gone through similar infertility struggles. Still entertaining years (and babies) later.

Makes Me Laugh
