Could self-resilience and support play big roles in your fertility?

Reproductive Endocrinologist, Dr. Jaime Knopman and Dr. Sheeva Talebian say yes.

Friends for twenty years and colleagues for ten, Dr. Knopman and Talebian truly believe in the power of perseverance and positivity when it comes to fertility. Both work together at CCRM NY – a center located in New York City and created for women and families experiencing challenges with conception. Through their work, Jaime and Sheeva found that what individuals and couples really need during their reproductive journeys is to feel empowered and educated. Which is why they started their blog – Truly MD, where they share honest, direct and digestible medical advice for people who are trying to conceive.

On today’s episode, Jaime and Sheeva are speaking about what they wish people knew before walking into their office, how IVF works and why your emotional well-being matters throughout your fertility process.
