Listen to Madison Madden, founder of LiveWise and author of Mind Body Food, discuss with Heather how she moved from disordered eating to an intuitive diet based on the Ayurvedic diet principles. She addresses the importance of discerning between good or bad cravings, whether it's okay to eat gluten, meat or other foods vilified today. She also talks about what food has to do with other types of pleasure and connection humans experience.   In this episode, Heather and Madison discuss:  How a battle with bulimia turned into a passion for helping others get healthy How gluten has been used as a filler in so many prepackaged and processed foods How do I know what's good for me when I get contradictory health advice from different sources Our relationship with food is similar to the relationship we have with an intimate partner or other people in our life: we have control games, codependencies, fantasies, private activities, hiding relationships The way we relate to food reflects how we relate to our body, to people, to the earth Why it's so much more than counting calories, protein, and vitamin B we are getting What disordered eating actually means Whether being a dancer fuels disordered eating in women How it's so easy to carry forward unhealthy behaviors Having discipline vs. going wild - in both the food context or sexual context. Comfort foods being associated with comforting experiences as a child How to relate to desire in a way that's healthy Why people who live alone may get sweet cravings late at night An answer to the question “What is Ayurveda?” Why each food is neither healthy, nor unhealthy, and why determining whether something is actually healthy requires us to look at how it is being used The relationship between environmental sustainability and human health Our unhealthy relationship with waste How what we choose to eat impacts the environment around us and the people around us   Madison Madden is a practitioner of Ayurvedic Medicine, Sustainability Educator, and expert Yoga & Somatic Practitioner. She is the author of MIND BODY FOOD: Redefining Your Relationship with Food. Having overcome a transformative battle with her own health starting as a child, Madison's story and gained expertise is deeply inspiring and hauntingly relevant to our times. She bridges science and spirituality, health and environmentalism, and speaks to many of the most pressing conflicts of our modern day. www.livewiseheal.com  Heather Grzych is the author of The Ayurvedic Guide to Fertility and the host of the Wisdom of the Body podcast.

I'll start with a few admissions and caveats. I am not, nor have I ever been, a fan of organized religion. I've dabbled in most of them, ranging from the modern, mainstream “hip” version of Christianity (where they encourage patrons to wear jeans and play Christian rock music at mass) to the Assembly of God (Pentecostals). I've attended Baptist, Mormon, and Episcopalian churches and I'm one of the very few people I know who has actually read the Qur'an.In the end, spirituality is for me, but not organized religion and believe you me, there is a very stark difference. Religion is the process and practice of humans telling other humans what to believe and how God will react…not to mention the collection of endless amounts of money along the way. I am, instead, like the majority of our founding fathers were, a deist; meaning that I acknowledge the existence of a supreme being and/or creator and who or what that looks like is not of your god damned business (pun intended). Deists also believe that this supreme being does not intervene in the universe…he is the ultimate believer in free will and doesn't have the time or inclination to actually plan out or interfere in the silly decisions humans are making on a day-to-day level, let alone our long term individual fates.In other words, everyone hates me in the spiritual world. Atheists think I'm a childish moron who, like others, believes in the man in the moon, and religious believers think I'm gutless and looking for a way to split the difference. I've heard it all from both sides. The thing that amazes me is that I am neither threatened nor upset at their beliefs, or lack thereof, but boy are most of them very concerned about mine. It might make one wonder or question their level of faith if one were so inclined.With all of that said, Pope Francis is a hypocritical moron who, quite frankly, needs to call it a career.I freely admit that I don't get the “Pope,” thing. Elevating a human on earth to near god-like status (which is absolutely what the Catholic Church does regardless of their spin) is, in and of itself, both absurd and creepy. That said, Pope Francis was ushered in as a change agent who was going to modernize the church. Despite being now 85 years old, he has been embraced by young believers for his acceptance and/or open-mindedness towards the LGBTQ community, women in the hierarchy, and even birth control. For much of his reign, Francis has shown a desire to move the church forward, while understanding that such changes must be done slowly and methodically to maintain the existing base of followers.https://www.americamagazine.org/faith/2021/09/23/james-martin-pope-francis-lgbt-241483https://www.npr.org/2021/02/08/965261708/pope-francis-latest-moves-to-empower-women-in-roman-catholic-churchhttps://www.firstpost.com/world/let-couples-not-the-church-decide-on-contraception-pope-francis-writes-in-the-joy-of-love-2719410.htmlBut boy, did he miss the mark last week…and people noticed.Pope Francis, on Wednesday, January 5th, lamented that couples prefer pets to children. He said many “do not have children because they do not want to, or they have just one, but they have two dogs, two cats… dogs and cats take the place of children.”He said that parenthood provides "something fundamental, something important" in people's lives. He said there is "a form of selfishness" in couples deciding to have just one child (or none) and that this "is a denial of fatherhood and motherhood and diminishes us, takes away our humanity."This is not a new message by the Pontiff; in 2014 he made sure we all knew that having the audacity to be married and choose to neither have, adopt, nor raise any children would lead to a life of “bitterness and loneliness.”This is all too rich. Here we have a man who has never had children, never been married, and perhaps most notably, never had a dog, lecturing all of us on all three without being remotely connected with the delicious hypocrisy and vapidness of his comments. (Never mind the fact that we have no shortage of humans on this planet as we're primed to hit 8 billion this year).Let's start with the hypocrisy:The church talks the talk on families, but it doesn't walk the walk. Many of its beliefs and policies are decidedly not pro-family.Consider, for example, the second-class status married people have had in the church itself for centuries. For close to 900 years, the church has deemed celibacy crucial to a priest's vocation. By being unmarried, the priest more fully conforms to the life of Christ, and thus his role was more elevated spiritually. So which is it? Is this simply the Pope trying to save the souls of those of us not so spiritually elevated as he and others that we have chosen to instead give in to the temptation of flesh by pointing out that the least we can do is provide more humans who can ultimately tithe? (For, let's not pretend that in the end, all messages from all religions are motivated by one thing and one thing alone: money).Is now the time to mention the offspring of not-so-celibate priests? No one knows how many there are, but it appears thousands of children may be in this situation, and some may never have been told who their real father is nor have received sufficient child support as part of the decades-old child molestation scandal that has been beautifully brushed aside by the Church so worried about the precious children.Meanwhile, the pope endorses more adoption. But many Catholic social service agencies refuse to include gay couples as foster or adoptive parents. In judging loving gay unions as not “even remotely analogous to God's plan for marriage and family,” the church cannot see the potential of gay Catholics as good parents.There's also the deep inconsistency between the pope's push for more children at the same time that he erects barriers to couples actually having them. Though he expresses empathy for couples struggling with infertility, church rules have been very picky about which fertility treatments can be approved. One treatment deemed unacceptable is in vitro fertilization, even if it only uses the husband's sperm and the wife's eggs. In part that's because children are not conceived the way God intended.IVF is “making children instead of accepting them as a gift,” Francis said in 2014. The church retains its opposition despite the fact that IVF often offers couples their only chance for children after other treatments have failed and has led to thousands of successful pregnancies.I could fill endless space with the hypocrisy of all religion, let alone on this particular subject, but alas, let's move on to the more salient point:In 2022, you can't expect people to believe we are simply here to breed. We are all individual humans with dreams and desires and goals. They don't always include having children. I know a lot of people like me who don't even like children.Many people, of course, choose to have children. Some have one, some have six. That is a choice they make, and I say more power to them, as long as they own the fact that they made that choice and the challenges that come with having brought lives into this world are theirs to bear and burden on their own, and they created their situation.And most importantly, people who choose to have children are in no way better or more human than those who choose not to. In many cases, the latter group is better, for we have recognized our own limitations and inabilities and decided not to pass those along to innocent lives who never asked to be brought into this world. As Oprah Winfrey acknowledged in 2013, had she chosen to have children, she would have had to choose the things in her life which had to be given the highest priority, and she knew she wouldn't have chosen her children. She would have chosen her career, and her kids would have both suffered and learned to quickly hate her. Is this the fate Pope Francis wishes upon all babies?To be clear, there are quite literally millions of Americans who have both children and thriving careers and interests; but they are motivated and driven by that. Many of us are not, and recognizing that is the least selfish thing a human can do. I'm not aware of any of us who have chosen not to have children who are pining to be rewarded, congratulated, or revered for our decisions, it would just be nice if we weren't demonized for it. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/the-hot-button/why-oprah-never-had-kids-they-would-hate-me/article15964472/To the most appalling misstep of the Pope's comments, let us acknowledge an undeniable truth: dogs make us more human. They make us better. Dogs are, in fact, superior to most people.The idea that dogs are unlike children is ridiculous.Custody battles break out over dogs. Short of setting up a college fund, having a dog is as heavy a responsibility — one with an expiration date, with heartbreak for the human built into the deal.I've seen people grieve for their dogs harder and longer than they have for friends and family…dog parents know. To the extent that offends parents, go to hell and stop telling those of us who have chosen who and what to love differently than you that you are somehow better and more enlightened. And while you're at it, remember once again that you are aligning yourself with someone who we're being lectured at who happens to be a childless Pope who doesn't have a dog.Why begrudge people their dogs? Why such a heartless take on man's best friend? What a misstep for Pope Francis. Why not take his cue from the late Pope John Paul II, himself an actual beloved global figure, who once comforted a small boy grieving his dog with the reassurance that yes, all dogs go to heaven?“Animals,” John Paul II said, “are as near to God as men are.”Or perhaps we look to a potentially even greater spiritual leader, the late Mahatma Gandhi who famously said “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”And need I remind all that Dog is God spelled backward?

We're digging into why gluten matters if you are TTC. I get this question all the time, “Should I go gluten free if I'm trying to conceive?” As you may know, I was diagnosed with premature ovarian insufficiency at 28 and had both my kids with donor eggs. Years later I discovered food sensitivities, gut infections and chronic stress were the cause of my infertility. I had no idea that gluten was a problem for my health until years later. Looking back the symptoms were there – bloating, dark circles under my eyes (indicator of food sensitivity), acne, dizziness, mood swings, keratosis pilaris (also known as chicken skin on the back of my arms – exfoliation didn't help) and of course infertility. As you may know, we work with complex cases such as low AMH, high FSH, diminished ovarian reserve and premature ovarian insufficiency/failure. We see a theme of non-celiac gluten sensitivity with food sensitivity tests coming back with gluten off the charts.   I'm excited to welcome Brandy Buskow back to the podcast. Brandy is part of my team here at Fab Fertile. She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program - which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception.

She is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and Board Certified Functional Wellness Coach and Master EFT Practitioner. She loves supporting women so they can learn how functional medicine addresses the underlying cause of disease or illness.   In this episode you'll learn: 1) Why it is important to go gluten free when we are TTC. 2) Consuming gluten during pregnancy and the potential risks for the child 3) Difference between celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity 4) Connection between autoimmune diseases and gluten i.e. Hashimoto's and Irritable Bowel Disease 5) Best test for gluten sensitivity 6) Supplements to help with gluten exposure – visit https://www.fabfertilestore.com/ --- Resources Excited that our LIVE Fertility Diet Challenge is launching on January 24th.

In this Ask The Egg Whisperer episode, Zoe sent in a question. Here's what she asked, “I have a question about genetic testing. I'm 41. First round, we got 33 eggs retrieved, 19 fertilized, eight PGS tested, and only one normal. This was transferred, but wasn't successful. Same thing with a second cycle. I thought that was a problem with my chromosomes. So I had the karyotype test, which came back normal. My husband has two healthy sons from his previous marriage, so the doctor didn't think it was worth him having the test. Do we just accept that age is the problem here and my eggs aren't good quality? Should we just be happy with our one healthy embryo or should my husband do the karyotype?"

Happily this week, we did not talk about NFTs, and I don't think that we even said “token” a single time.Instead, Mary Ann and Natasha and Alex got back to what we might consider the roots of Equity. Here's what we got into: We started with a look at the recent Fertilis round. Fertilis is an Australian startup working to make the IVF process more reliable. We are big fans of the concept, though the startup has lots of work ahead of it before it moves the needle for couples hoping to conceive.  Mary Ann brought together two very Equity topics: Fintech and SaaS, but more interestingly, fintech that only wants to serve SaaS startups. Even though we tried to define Arc's relationship with the startups it serves, Alex landed on it being a friends with benefits for the financial world. Speaking of fintech, Brex made headlines (again) with its new raise and new executive – thanks to Meta.We keep returning to the hiring conversation, and that's for good reason. Career Karma (news here) and SeekOut (news here) have two different strategies when it comes to empowering employees at companies -- and all of us agreed that retention, versus placement, is the future of hiring tech. We ended with a conversation on accelerators thanks to Y Combinator's news, and venture reaction thereof. Plus, new AngelList and Dorm Room Fund remind us that staying niche in strategy continues to be the way that early-stage venture operations are winning deals. A big hug to you all for surviving the start to the working year during a COVID surge. We can do this! We'll get through it as a big team, ok?

When I was going through IVF, there was on average 20ish women in the waiting room. It was like we were cattle, waiting to move through the sluggish line. The routine was always the same. Blood work, get undressed, ultrasound, get dressed, talk to the doctor/nurse. Leave. The environment bred this thought of, “My body feels like a machine that needs fixing.But when I would go home, I would nurture the fuck out of my body. I would sing to my body. I would hang out in long cuddles with my husband. I would feed it nurturing soups.I would caress it in the bath, telling it how proud I was of it and everything it's been through. This is what's missing in the fertility world. We get caught up in the physical, the numbers, the odds of success… and forget that our bodies are a living, breathing thing. Your body need to be reassured of its miracle status. Reassured that you'll love it no matter what ends up happening. Reassured that it's #1 side kick… YOU… have its back no matter what.

You've heard me say it before because I think we've all been there. You get diagnosed with PCOS and you think “yes! finally a reason behind why I've got these symptoms going on. Now I can just figure out what to do about it.” You figure that you'll see your doctor, get a specialist referral and you'll be on your merry way.Ugh, as if! As one of our protocolers Lily put so perfectly: “it feels like they're waiting for you to fall off a cliff before they want to help you.” So of course you go searching the internet ‘abyss' for information and try to piece together a list of lifestyle changes that can help your PCOS symptoms. Usually that list ends up being so freakin' long it's hard to keep up with.Lifestyle changes can make a massive, positive impact on your symptoms. But it doesn't mean that loading up on as many lifestyle changes as possible is the best idea. Figuring out what those few ‘high impact' changes are for you that you can maintain long term is what'll really make the difference. In today's episode we talk all about this and more with Lily, one of our lovely PCOS protocolers. Like me — and probably a lot of you — Lily is a perfectionist, type A kinda gal. So when she finally got a diagnosis after years of trying and suspecting, she jumped straight into ‘ok now give me the steps to fix this and I'll follow it to a tee' mode. Which of course left her feeling disappointed and frustrated when she got only tiny, unhelpful crumbs of information from her doctors. There's so much information out there, so she ended up with an extremely long, unsustainable list of changes to made life feel really restrictive. She dealt with aggressive cystic acne (like the accutane type, not a couple of measly spots), uncontrollable weight gain, some hirsutism and unexplained fatigue. Not only did we help her drastically improve those symptoms (5.5 inches of her waist, 6 inches of her hips, no need to sleep in the day, cleared up acne and no more hirsutism!) but she's also come out the other side (and into our Lifers program) equipped with knowledge about her body and with some really solid, fantastic mindset shifts that enable her to continue keeping on top of her PCOS symptoms.If you're feeling like you've tried everything, you're feeling like a failure and it feels like the list of things you need to do to get on top of things is miles long, then you're going to get so much out of this chat. Plus, there were plenty of laughs and relatable ‘that's so me' moments along the way — it's a hoot of a pod!This episode is for you if:You're struggling with uncontrollable weight gainAcne is a major symptom for youYou find that you're always tired for no logical reasonYou feel like your doctors aren't really giving you any options beyond the Pill, IVF and eating less moving moreYou have a type A / perfectionist personalityYou've been looking all over the internet for answers and stitching together different recommendations but you can't seem to get on top of your symptomsYou think you may have or know you have thyroid issuesYou want to know how to make changes for your PCOS sustainableYou think you may have or know you have autoimmune issuesYou're doing so much for your PCOS so you're confused about why nothing seems to be workingTalking to your family and friends about PCOS usually ends up in them asking why you can't eat certain foods and what someone they know did to help their symptomsYour tests have come back ‘normal' but you don't feel normalSome things we cover in this episode:Weight gainAggressive acneWhy making more and more changes isn't always betterWhy conversations with loved ones about PCOS can be difficult and how to approach these situationsWhy your blood tests may show as normal when

Many times, the family building journey can make someone feel alone and without help. This sentiment rang true to Priya Santhanam, Ph.D., a scientist and engineer in the STEM field.  In Priya's culture, having children is an important life milestone and she, like so many others, imagined a life that followed the blueprint of get a degree, have a successful career, have kids, and maintain a harmonious work/life balance. Things didn't exactly go as planned.   Her experience with miscarriage, IUI, IVF and successfully navigating her employer's fertility benefit was the start of her advocacy. When Priya began her journey, she found the lack of women in STEM led to an inherent lack of women in STEM talking about fertility. This gap and her own experience led her to become a tireless advocate for infertility awareness in her field.  On today's episode, Priya walks us through the importance of emotional support while on a fertility journey, the crucial impact of a robust family planning benefit, and the need to bring conversations around infertility to the forefront for women in all industries.   Guest: Priya Santhanam, Progyny Member  Host: Lissa Kline Progyny  For more information, visit Progyny's Podcast page and Progyny's Education page for more resources.   Be sure to follow us on Instagram, @ThisisInfertilityPodcast and use the #ThisisInfertility.      Have a question, comment, or want to share your story?

We're digging into how to move from the Standard American/Western Diet to a healthy diet for your fertility. Let's face it, eating a diet that is right for our fertility is confusing. Whether it's fertility superfoods, generalized recommendations about what to eat or avoid for optimized fertility… we may not know where to start. However, we all know that eating packaged processed foods is not healthy for anyone – especially if we are trying to conceive. Changing to a healthy preconception diet is not about deprivation or eating food that tastes like cardboard. It's about finding the most nutrient-dense foods that actually taste good so that you can prepare for a successful pregnancy. And it's not a “diet” – it's a lifestyle change that literally is life-changing – our clients tell us so! You have your WHY, so let's get started.   I'm excited to welcome Justine Altman back to the podcast. Justine is part of my team here at Fab Fertile. She is an integral part of our Couples Coaching program - which uses functional lab testing, diet, and lifestyle changes to dramatically improve conception. If you are struggling with infertility... your body is desperately trying to tell you something... focusing on your health will either help you get pregnant naturally or if you do need to go to the fertility clinic it will improve your chances of success. Justine is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. She was diagnosed with PCOS and struggled with infertility but after taking a functional approach was able to have both her children naturally.   In this episode you'll learn: 1) How to make the change from the standard western diet to the healthy fertility diet/lifestyle 2) How to set your intention so you stay committed. These changes may be simple but they are not easy. 3) How to keep it simple without spending hours in the kitchen cooking. 4) What to look for on labels so you don't eat the wrong foods. 5) What to do about emotional eating. How to deal with excuses or lack of motivation 6) Why it's important to include your partner in the changes --- Highlights 5:53 WELCOME JUSTINE ALTMAN 7:07 MY BACKGROUND GROWING UP IN A HEALTHY FOOD HOUSEHOLD As my friend sat and ate her honey sandwich and Chef Boyardee I was like, give me that. 9:27 JUSTINE'S CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCE WITH JUNK FOOD What I thought was making dinner was making a box of Kraft macaroni and cheese or going to pick up McDonald's. 11:17 HOW TO START TRANSITIONING TO A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE How you ease into it is really different from person to personThe most important thing is to eliminate the foods that cause inflammation. Making the mindset shift from “diet' to “lifestyle” Food choices are a gateway to a healthier lifestyle. The surprising ways a healthy lifestyle simplifies your life 15:49 FOCUSING ON YOUR WHY Setting your intention helps you to stay on track Live a healthy lifestyle for yourself and you'll create a ripple effect. 18:49 THE BEST THING YOU COULD EVER DO IS TO START NOW There's always going to be a reason why today or this week or this month isn't the right time. Focus on doing the best you can, not on perfection 20:46 KEEPING IT SIMPLE Start with the healthy foods you're comfortable with and expand from there It's about making upgrades, not forcing yourself to eat things that you hate Allow yourself time for your palate to adjust 23:11 GETTING CONFIDENT ABOUT READING LABELS Being strategic in your grocery shopping What to watch out for on labels Be your own detective with ingredient labels. 26:53 SETTING YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS How leftovers help you avoid fast food Why Justine recommends refreshing your pantry before switching to a healthy lifestyle 29:07 BUILDING THE HABIT Be patient with yourself but make a plan and stick with it Give yourself grace through the initial tough period 31:12 EMOTIONAL EATING Looking at your patterns around food and eating Simple strategies you can use to start to shift emotional eating patterns 33:16 KEEP MOVING AND KEEP HYDRATED 34:00 GETTING YOUR PARTNER INVOLVED Doing this together is key.

In this Ask The Egg Whisperer episode, Gulbahar sent in a question. Here's what she asked, “My doctor recommended that I take a one month off between egg retrievals. There are only so many times to ask 'why' and not be answered before feeling you can't ask again. What is the science between a month wait? I have low ovarian reserves, so overstimulation is not likely.  Why do some women have back to back IVF cycle while others don't?” And the answer is you don't have to take a break. You really don't. I always say when your period starts, you think of me and you come on in by cycle day three, you just keep showing up. I say this because you just never know when you're going to have an awesome cycle. So how would you know that the cycle right after one egg retrieval, is going to have a lot of sparkling eggs unless you actually go and look? So I would advocate for yourself. Ask your doctor if you can come in at the time of your period, just to check, understanding that you might have an ovarian cyst that might make it so that you just need to take a break.  I don't necessarily recommend a one month break. I do have patients that just feel like they want to  keep coming in cycle after cycle without a break. But if let's say you're 41 years old, you have a follicle count of three the next month after your egg retrieval, you could have a follow up count of four. So I would suggest, showing up, find out what's happening in that cycle and then make a decision as to whether you should take a break or wait for your next cycle.

Listen to Erika Kimball, a visionary former practicing nurse who was once horrified by the amount of garbage at the end of her shift, describe to Heather how she changed careers to reduce healthcare's environmental impact. Erika discusses the basic challenges of sustainability and environmentalism in healthcare, which in the US is responsible for 10% of greenhouse gases and is a huge contributor to plastics in the environment. She also addresses the importance of maintaining optimism as really smart people work to improve the system.  In this episode, Heather and Erika discuss:  Healthcare industry is responsible for 10% of US greenhouse gases.   Healthcare generates 5.9 million tons of waste per year and 25% of that is plastic  Healthcare system uses 2.5 times the energy of a commensurate commercial building because of all the technology.  Why if we can get it right in healthcare, it will pave the way for other industries  The majority of materials used in a hospital setting are single-use plastics.  The environmental challenge we have with buying supplements and herbs from overseas, including a lack of sustainable packaging  Why the goal is to have healthy materials, used in optimal amounts, and processed in ways that benefit the environment at end of life  How to improve sustainability in healthcare without driving up costs  Conservation in healthcare. For example, how to we waste less and how do we take better care of our things.  Implementing circular economy principles in healthcare  How today the healthcare system is contributing to breaks in biological cycles  The rise of green chemistry – and how that could produce healthier materials for healthcare  The big problem of single-use plastics in healthcare  Some of the sustainable policies and practices that are being implemented now in healthcare practices and hospitals  How hospitals and doctors and healthcare workers get involved in climate action  Why the social determinants of health are environmental determinants of health  How do we operate in a way that supports those health goals  Why sustainability in healthcare, like COVID, is an all-hands-on-deck moment  The biggest change that the healthcare system could implement that would make a dramatic effect on the environment    Erika Kimball is a sustainability leader who works to reduce the environmental impact of healthcare. She advises hospitals and healthcare companies on sustainability and climate action, healthy materials, circular economy principles, and sustainable policy and practices. A nurse by training, Erika takes a holistic approach to healthcare change management, building the systems, relationships, and capacity to achieve better environmental outcomes. kimballsustainablehealthcare.com   Heather Grzych is the author of The Ayurvedic Guide to Fertility and the host of the Wisdom of the Body podcast.

Karin hired Jacob as her coach and he taught her to focus on effort & time, add variety to her paces, and to trust the process. For the past 18 months, Karin has put all her energy into spreading awareness and raising funds for RIVS and completed the PRP Virtual Race series of Team Peak Run races: 25K, 50K, 50M, 100K—which benefitted Bigger Than The Trail—all while staying healthy. Karin and husband Patrick had a 5+ year IVF journey to have their children, Baxter and Cassidy. Because it was such a rough, uphill battle to get pregnant, Karin poured every last ounce of herself into being the best mom. Ultimately, that took a big toll and she lost herself along the way. Her husband insisted she schedule 10 minutes a day for herself—which slowly grew to an hour—and the "Happy Mama Project" was born. Soon Karin was running again, which had always helped her manage anxiety. When home schooling during the pandemic, her kids helped out too, suggesting when Mom "needed to get in a run." This part will resonate with all the moms out there that we love, who take on so much for their families. We discuss: family life, youth sports, swimming, running, triathlon, mentors (Coach Showers & Coach Holm), running for a greater purpose, Joggin for Jen, Team RIVS, Bigger Than the Trail, hiring a new coach and positive changes made with Jacob Puzey, the Happy Mama Project, anxiety, how Running for RIVS galvanized so many, the running community. I'm so grateful for Karin coming on and sharing her inspiring story! I hope you all enjoy this convo as much as we did!

If you have unexplained infertility, what are your chances of ultimately having a baby—either through infertility treatment or natural conception? We talk with Dr. Denis Vaughan, a board-certified Reproductive Endocrinologist at Boston IVF and a Clinical Instructor at Harvard Medical School. He was the principal investigator on the study "Long-term reproductive outcomes in patients with unexplained infertility". In this episode, we cover:What year was the original FASTT trial and what were the findings?What is unexplained infertility and how common is it?Did most of the women try to conceive after the original FASTT trial?How did the women who agree to participate in this follow-up study compare to the original FASTT participants? Was there a difference between those who participated in the follow-up and those who did not?What percentage of the women were successful at conception with IUI? IVF? Natural conception?What percentage tried to conceive with donor egg?What percentage adopted?If the woman had conceived via fertility treatment in the original FASTT trial is she more likely to conceive successfully in the future?Some speculate that a significant proportion of unexplained infertility is due to un-diagnosed endometriosis. Did this follow-up study shed light on that question?Did many of the women after the original FASTT study receive a more definitive diagnosis of why they were not able to conceive?What did the study show about patient satisfaction with their family building process and ultimate family size?What did we learn about conception with unexplained infertility as a result of the follow-up to the FASTT study?This podcast is produced  by www.CreatingaFamily.org.

We've been keeping a secret for 11 weeks — I'm 15 weeks pregnant!!!! Yes, this news was possibly even more shocking than when we found out I was pregnant with Kierstyn after 10 years of infertility! In fact, we were so surprised, we waited a full week to tell our kids — which, if you know Jesse and me well, you know we can't keep secrets from our kids! We found out I was pregnant right after saying yes to adopting Baby D... who we thought was going to our family's caboose! But God definitely had different plans and we just had laugh at the timing of it all! We also have to marvel at how we went from grieving the loss of being told that we'd never be able to have more kids a few years ago (not even through IVF) to now prepping for having 3 littles with the oldest being barely 2 years old! Oh and at 40 and 41 years old! Only God! We are all thrilled and excited with this very unexpected news and how God is writing a story here that is so different than what we could have ever dreamed or imagined! I'm slowly coming back to life after 9 weeks or so of the usual morning-noon-and-night sickness and extreme exhaustion. If you've noticed I've not been sharing as much here and not sharing food/cooking/recipes or videos with my face much on Instagram stories, now you know why! For all the details on how we found out, how we told our kids, and more, be sure to listen to today's podcast episode. Want more details on my pregnancy? I'm sharing more and answering your questions over on Instagram today. Note: I know that this news will be really hard for some of you to hear. You'd give anything to be pregnant and hearing another pregnancy announcement feels like a gut-punch. I want you to know you've been heavy on my heart and I've been praying specifically for you. I also want you to know that you have my full permission to unfollow or mute my social media accounts for awhile — whatever you need to do, please do it and know I will fully support you in that.

We're digging into New Year's resolutions and an action plan for 2022. Happy New Year! If you're like me you probably set some resolutions or I prefer the term intentions. Here's mine (I'm already doing many of these but I like to restate them because they are so important to me): - Yoga 2-3x/week - Meditate daily and/or visualization - Wear my castor oil pack to bed (hello best sleep ever!) - Try one new recipe per week. Love me some soup! (Real Plans app is my favourite) - Grant myself grace and compassion (daily)   Many of us set a resolution that is not realistic or is even in alignment with our highest self.

Today on the podcast, I'm sharing a recent Ask the Egg Whisperer episode. I love answering your questions, and Natalie sent in a great one about a bicornuate uterus. Here's what she wrote, “Does having a bicornuate uterus affect fertility? What can be done to make sure the pregnancy sticks and remains healthy so the baby is born full term?” Having a bicornuate uterus is very special. When I see someone who comes to me with a bicornuate uterus, I like to learn more about the patient's anatomy so we can create a plan and build a team to support the patient.  First, make sure that you have an accurate diagnosis. You'll also want to get an understanding of your own unique bicornuate uterus' anatomy. Depending on your anatomy and diagnosis, the good news is that it is possible to deliver a healthy full-term baby. It's also true that a bicornuate uterus may cause pregnancy complications.  I would recommend talking to your OB GYN to see what they think, and ask what their experiences with patients just like you. Ask for their approach on managing your bicornuate uterus.  Do you have questions about IVF? Join Dr. Aimee for The IVF Class at The Egg Whisperer School.
