Listen to clips from the audiobooks mentioned in this episode:
Since the worldâ€™s first test-tube baby was born in 1978, in vitro fertilization has made the unimaginable possible for millions of people, but its revolutionary potential remains unrealized. In Hatching, a vivid and incisive personal and cultural history, Jenni Quilter explores what it is like to be one of those women, both the site of a bold experiment and a potential mother caught between fearing and yearning.
Queer Conception is the only evidence-based, up-to-date fertility guide for queer people from an experienced health care provider, the first to be transgender inclusive and body-positive, and an antidote to a medical system that all too often centers heterosexual couples while overlooking the unique needs of the LGBTQ+ community. This comprehensive audio guide is for all LGBTQ+ listeners interested in creating family through pregnancy: queer folks, lesbians, gay men, bisexual people, trans and nonbinary people, couples, single parents by choice, poly families, and coparents.
Drawing on Dr. Kellyann Petrucciâ€™s decades of wellness practice, her own health transformation journey, and new research about the power of this ancient wonder ingredient, Dr. Kellyann’s Bone Broth Breakthrough presents a paradigm shift in the way you think about aging and weight loss, and guides you to better tune into what your own body needs.
