We’re journalists as well as podcasters. Here’s some of our work:
What it is like coping with IVF at work
It’s a Wednesday afternoon and I’m sitting in a meeting with a colleague. He’s telling me about the complex technology used by one of our new clients. Something about data stacks. I’m nodding along but there are tears running down my cheeks, dropping silently on to my notebook. ‘I’m fine honestly,’ I say when he looks at me startled, thinking he has bored me to tears. ‘Please keep going.’
How Instagram became my support system
Emma Forsyth, 32, also found support when she couldn't get pregnant.
She has been trying to have a baby through IVF for two years and co-hosts a podcast, Big Fat Negative, about infertility.
"You almost feel like a freak because your body is essentially betraying you," she says.
Instagram has become my IVF support system
On a rainy Saturday earlier this month, a doctor broke the news to me that yet another round of IVF was cancelled because my body had let me down. As I left my clinic, sobbing and frustrated at having failed, for the third time in a row, to reach the point where one of my frozen embryos could be put inside me, a message popped up on my phone. “How did it go?” A few seconds later, another: “Take care of yourself.” These messages weren’t from my best friends, checking up on me – these were encouragement from a group of strangers.
