#145: Facing Infertility as a Medical Couple

Linda Abdelsayed, Lara McElderry

In this episode, Lara speaks with Linda Abdelsayed (MFT) regarding infertility and the medical journey. What makes infertility unique for physician families? Timing and privacy are two things that come to mind quickly, but on further inspection, there is also a real loss for some couples if they don’t feel the father is involved during the many necessary appointments.  Linda and Lara will discuss ideas for dealing with these situations as well as Linda’s personal story and how she came to work in the infertility space.
