In Search of Fertility – Victoria Hopewell
About This Show
Eight babies are born in the U.S. every single minute. Conception, gestation and birth would seem the most natural things in the world, but not for the 7.3 million infertile Americans. Infertility is an existential slap in the face. In Search of Fertility covers all aspects of infertility and the attendant highs and lows. You’ll hear from infertile men and women and their doctors and counselors, donors and surrogates. In Search of Fertility gives a voice to the all too often silent, hidden world of infertility.
