She Found Motherhood podcast

Sep 8, 2021

Fertility. The fact of the matter is that humans are not that great at reproduction! Even in the best circumstances, a young healthy woman only has about a 15-20% chance of becoming pregnant within one ovulation cycle. All types of fertility require a certain amount of patience and effort - and the good news is that modern medicine has evolved to provide women with a variety of safe and successful options for preserving fertility!

On today’s podcast, we discuss the three main options for safeguarding fertility as well as their benefits and drawbacks:

  1. Egg freezing
  2. IUI with donor sperm 
  3. IVF with donor sperm to create embryos that can be transferred at anytime in the future

Joining us is Dr. Meivys Garcia, FRCSC Obstetrics, Gynecology, Infertility Specialist and medical director and co-owner of the Markham Fertility Center in London, Ontario, Canada. She’s had a passion for fertility from a young age as well as her own experience with infertility treatments, and loves the deeply personal and emotional journey of helping women achieve their dreams and goals of pregnancy!
