How To Survive Infertility at Christmas, The JelliePod

The second all-girls episode of The JelliePod has dropped, featuring host, Ellie Thompson, and guests Helena, Catherine and Anya. We’ve got together for a special Christmas ep to discuss infertility at Christmas, and to offer support to those going through it.

The girls team up to tackle a variety of issues surrounding struggling to conceive and fertility at this time of year, sharing their own experiences of infertility at Christmas. They ask why it’s such a painful time of year, and discuss how to prepare for those inevitable questions from family  ‘Is 2022 the year you’ll start your family?!’ They check out what Google has to say when it comes to offering up tactics and distractions for dealing with infertility at Christmas, and share advice on how to deal with grief, and most importantly, how to say ‘no’.
For extra support this Christmas and beyond, join the Jellie Facebook support group: IVF/TTC: A Place To Talk.
