Some women want children, some don't, some can't. Hollywood may have us believing that women can give birth at almost any age, but is that true? Fertility physician and specialist, Dr. Kaajal Abrol (@kaajalabrolmd (https://www.instagram.com/kaajalabrolmd/?hl=en), @fertilitydoctalkpodcast (https://www.instagram.com/fertilitydoctalkpodcast/)) breaks it all down and so much more. For those who are thinking of children, what do we need to know about fertility as we age? Are infertility rates increasing in Canada and around the world? What about egg freezing? What's the best age to do this? How does it work? Is infertility hereditary? What lifestyle and environmental factors can affect female and male fertility? What role does stress play? How do you find a fertility clinic and when should you seek care? What medications and treatments are available to improve your chances of conception and pregnancy and how much do they cost each? If you're thinking about having a child, want to have a child, have someone in your life that is thinking of having a child now or in the future, this is the episode to help prepare as best as you can. Find Melissa Grelo on Instagram @MelissaGrelo (https://www.instagram.com/melissagrelo/?hl=en) and @AgingPowerfullyWithMG (https://www.instagram.com/agingpowerfullywithmg/?hl=en), on YouTube @MelissaGrelo (https://www.youtube.com/user/MelissaGrelo), or on her website AgingPowerfullyWithMelissaGrelo.com (https://www.agingpowerfullywithmelissagrelo.com/). Producer: Melissa Grelo. Audio/Video Producer and Editor: Drew Garner.
