Why we Need to Normalize Fertility Talks & "After 35" Pregnancies w/ Dr. Shannon Clark
Listen now
Let’s be honest, there is nothing attractive about the term "geriatric pregnancy”. Though ovarian aging is a real thing and different for every woman, we need to normalize what age women decide to conceive, whether is through natural conception or IVF. Furthermore, in communities of color miscarriages and infertility are not highly discussed, although fibroids, which can cause miscarriages, are common. Truth be told, not all doctors have the best bedside manners when speaking to women of color related to their fertility options. This could be related to a number of implicit and unconscious biases and even a lack of time. As a result, this may delay fertility services and treatment options and even lead to death. Today, we have Dr. Shannon Clark, a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, to discuss her personal and empowering fertility story, what you need to know if you want kids, and what to ask your OB-GYN.
