Bombshell Brunches’s Podcast: Fertility starting a family and the importance of Informed decision-making
THIS IS SO IMPORTANT. Fertility is something that we don’t talk about enough, or nearly soon enough. Whether you are in your teens, twenties, thirties or ANY decade, this is for YOU, for your loved ones, for your and their future. We’re joined today by two incredible individuals, Dr. Marjorie Dixon from Anova Fertility, and Carolynn Dube from Fertility Matters Canada. We talk about our physiology being at odds to the systems we live in, cultural, unconscious and society biases, and best ways to empower yourself through education. As Carolynn says, nobody is going to advocate for your health more than YOU. We are so grateful to have had the chance to speak to leading experts about uncomfortable topics that are IMPERATIVE to our sustained success. In true Bombshell style, we dish it out frankly, laugh loudly, and leave this episode with practical, actionable steps to take greater care of our families; past, present and future!
