In episode #018, Amy Klein shares her experience with recurrent pregnancy loss. She has had two natural miscarriages, one IVF miscarriage, and one donor egg miscarriage. After four years, ten doctors, nine rounds of IVF, two donors, and one reproductive immunologist, she has one baby. We discuss what reproductive immunology is, how it works, and why it ultimately led to a healthy pregnancy for Amy.
Amy has chronicled her life experiences through her writing for years, and her most recent book is The Trying Game: Get Through Fertility Treatment and Get Pregnant Without Losing Your Mind. This is the book she wishes she’d had when she was trying to get pregnant, and it includes advice from medical experts and patients as well as her own take on what to expect when you’re not expecting.
