TalkingFertility.com aims to bring the best and brightest minds in fertility together in a way that is meaningful, educational and supportive to those who are trying to conceive. While we do report on the latest news in the world of fertility and talk about issues our visitors care about, we do not provide medical advice or endorse any particular service or approach to treating infertility.
We do encourage – no implore – you to ask our experts questions and share your own thoughts and experiences about your fertility journey in our forums. Please let us know how we can better serve you!
Dana Drake, Editor-In-Chief
Dana is an award-winning television documentary and biography producer, as well as a former television news reporter. She struggled with secondary infertility for years. While trying to conceive she constantly searched online for support, advice, and the latest in fertility medical news. It didn’t exist all in one place. So, Dana decided to create a user-friendly virtual community and resource for anyone who is trying to conceive.
Message from the Editor and Founder:
“Battling unexplained infertility sent me to a dark place – I became depressed, overly emotional and felt intense guilt. I couldn’t help but wonder why I couldn’t do what so many other women were able to do – some without even trying! A few years later, I woke up one morning and realized, now that my fertility struggle is over and I finally have the family I always dreamed of – I want, no need to pay-it-forward. I want to share the pain I endured and lessons I learned with other women – so they will know they can get through it. Also, I want women to understand how important it is to be their own advocate. Learn as much as you can about your options and your body. Don’t just blindly accept what anyone – even doctors – tell you without doing your own research. Welcome to TalkingFertility.com. I hope you visit often, share your stories and offer support to others. Remember, you are not alone on this journey – we are here for you.”
