Welcome to the Future of Fertility
Ever since the first IVF baby was born, just over 40 years ago, the fertility field has grown steadily and rapidly. What does the future hold?
On this episode, which is divided into three parts, Andrea invites experts in the field to explore what we can expect moving forward with the advancements in the field, how to best protect ourselves and our specimens over time, and why we need better access to treatment and advocacy for people who are building their families 'with help'.
This episode delves into:
- The start of IVF, with the first American 'test tube baby', advocate Elizabeth Jordan Carr, and what she's witnessed in ART in her lifetime
- The future of fertility, with members of the TMRW Life Sciences Team, Tara Comonte and Cynthia Hudson, who speak about transparency and scalability as more eggs and embryos are frozen.
- The ethics and law around fertility preservation and accountability, with Family and Fertility Lawyer, Alexis Cirel
While it's never a good time to be infertile or need assistance to have a baby, this conversation shows that the future of fertility looks bright.
