Meet “Been There, Injected That” A New Podcast from Fruitful

The Fruitful Fertility team is so excited to announce season 1 of our new podcast: Been There, Injected That. It’s a TMI podcast about going through infertility and all the hormone injections, awkward moments and nervous breakdowns along the way.

When I was going through infertility treatments, I was *obsessed* with hearing other infertility stories. I gobbled them up…whether they were posts in private TTC Facebook groups, books, blog posts, documentaries…it didn’t matter. I loved hearing them all – real stories from real people who really were changed on their paths to parenthood.

But my personal favorite way to consume these intimate, hilarious, touching, tragic stories was via podcasts.

I simply love podcasts; I’m addicted to listening to the quiver in people’s voices, the hiccups, the hesitations…free from visual distractions…just voice and story and vulnerability. For me, there’s nothing like someone talking about their story…sharing the good, the bad and the really, really ugly.


That’s the inspiration behind “Been There, Injected That,” our new TMI podcast about going through infertility and all the hormone injections, awkward moments and nervous breakdowns along the way. We’re excited to release 10 episodes, that will make up season 1.

Each 30ish-minute episode will cover a conversation with either a real person who struggled with infertility and child loss, mental health experts, providers, holistic professionals and more. We’ll discuss ways to find your TTC tribe, what to ask at your first fertility clinic appointment and holistic ways to help boost your odds of conceiving naturally.

You can find the episodes here or else subscribe through iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher or others.
