58: Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes!

Sarah & Kaela are talking about changing doctors/clinics and the many factors that go into such a big decision!  They share listener comments and experiences about why/when they decided they needed to make a switch. Are you feeling like a change will do you good?  Infertility is hard enough, feeling like you have a competent and supportive doctor is an important part of the equation!

 

On the topic of change, they’re also asking you to participate in a survey from their friends at Pregnantish.com and one lucky listener will win a $50 Amazon gift card from Pregnantish and a little bonus gift from Sarah & Kaela! 

 

“At Pregnantish, our mission is 'Real Talk About Fertility' and we are committed to breaking the taboo of infertility. Our goal is to empower patients and healthcare providers to have a better experience and relationship during the fertility treatment process. Because too many readers have expressed their concerns, we've created this short survey to invite 'real talk' from you on your experiences.  Your answers will help us share important feedback with healthcare providers (fertility doctors, OB/GYNs, and clinics), which could ultimately improve the patient experience. Please note that your personal information (name, age, email) will not be revealed or shared publicly. This survey should take approximately 5 minutes.”

 

Take the Pregnantish survey here!

 

And last but not least, with Spring Break right around the corner, they talk about - swimsuit shopping.  Dun, dun, duuuuuuuun!

Sarah & Kaela continue exploring the Keto diet in part two of this two part episode.  This time, they talk about the downside of Keto including health risks, long-term side effects, and even some not so pleasant short-term ones (like Keto breath and Keto flu...ew).  They also share insight from Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Melissa Groves who answers listener questions and shares her professional opinion on this popular fertility diet - hint: she’s not a big fan!  Finally, Kaela shares an embarrassing confession and Sarah talks about her unfortunate dilemma when she’s not the only “Sarah” in the waiting room at the fertility clinic.

55: The Keto Diet (Part 1) - My Doctor Says Do It!

Kaela & Sarah explore the trendy Keto diet in part one of this two part episode.  In this episode, they share some positive aspects of the Keto diet and discuss why it’s so popular among women trying to conceive, especially those with PCOS.  They also share the opinion of a reproductive endocrinologist who prescribes the Keto diet to all of his patients. But, despite some of its appeal, Kaela isn’t totally convinced and she shares her ongoing concern.  

 

Sarah shares a few big secrets with Kaela (one of them might be that she’s starting the Keto diet), and they discuss how basically all food is bad for you!  Finally, they cover topics like beauty queens, Tom Brady, the super bowl, some epic jerk off room stories, and give a shout out to all the female doctors for National Women’s Physician Day!
