In the first episode of the Herald’s new parenting podcast One Day You’ll Thank Me, Jenni Mortimer and Rebecca Blithe speak with radio host Laura McGoldrick about her brave fertility journey and Repromed founder and fertility doctor Dr Guy Gudex about IVF, infertility stigma and how you can help your chances of conceiving.

“Occasionally things like egg reserves in a younger woman are an important issue and occasionally there are sperm issues that are difficult to overcome, even with the clever tricks we’ve got,” says Guy, “but primarily the success rates are age-based. And it is most successful under the age of 30.”
