Infertility And Me: Infertility, TTC, Fertility

Real-life uncut stories of infertility that validate, educate, & create a community where no one is left silently suffering. Your host is Monique Farook, an IVF-mom to one, entrepreneur, and women’s health advocate.

Monique chats with guests about reproductive justice, pregnancy loss, miscarriage, male-factor infertility, rare conditions such as MRKH, endometriosis, LGBTQ+ paths to parenthood, single moms by choice, and what happens when fertility friends walk away childless.
