Infertile AF Podcast
In this unfiltered podcast about infertility, Brooklyn-based journalist and mom-of-two Ali Prato, who went through IVF herself, talks to women—and some men—about the messy, frustrating, painful, heartbreaking, absurd and sometimes hilarious journey to have a baby. Or in some cases, to not have a baby. Each episode tells a different story, getting real about miscarriages, egg freezing, sperm donors, adoption, infertility depression, secondary infertility, surrogacy, endometriosis, IUIs, acupuncture, nutrition, relationship drama, embryonic genetic testing, money issues, that crazy jealousy you feel when you see someone else with a baby bump, and so much more. We’ll cover the happy endings, the soul-crushingly sad ones, and the ones still in limbo.

You might know journalist Amy Klein from Fertility Diary, the column she wrote in the New York Times about her infertility journey. Today, Ali is talking to Amy about everything she went through—including nine rounds of IVF, four miscarriages, two rabbis and one reproductive immunologist—before finally having her daughter in 2015. Amy also talks about finding (and affording) a clinic, baby envy, and when it's time to move on. Listen here now.
Ali talks today to fellow journalist and Brooklyn mom Amy Gallo Ryan about her long and painful infertility journey, which includes IUIs, feeling brushed off by doctors because she was "too young," even though she knew there was a problem; unexplained infertility; a chemical pregnancy; a "pseudo sac;" and an ectopic pregnancy. Amy talks about the isolation she felt when she was navigating not being able to sustain a healthy pregnancy, how she couldn't find the right people to talk to, and how family building difficulties affected her relationship with her husband. She also discusses her seven rounds of IVF—and what her family looks like now. Listen Here Now.
