Amy Klein is a health journalist and essayist, whose work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Slate, Salon and other publications. Her Fertility Diary column in The New York Times following her four-year journey to have a baby, with ten doctors, four miscarriages and one beautiful daughter.

WHAT TO EXPECT?
We will address the following questions:
- How has Coronavirus affected people TCC and going through fertility treatment?
- For people who are still TTC, can you talk about how stress affects fertility?
- What are some things people can do to help themselves while TTC now?
- I know you write about Baby Envy in your book. Now that we’re all stuck at home on social media, how can people who are struggling with Infertility deal with all the social media posts complaining about their kids and all the usual baby envy — when everything is put on hold?
- Treatment sounds so expensive…how can people afford it?
- If you have friends who are struggling, what is the best way to help them?
Tuesday, April 21st at 5 PM PST/8 PM EST | on Zoom (link to be circulated)
It will be MOST helpful for aspiring parents who want to learn more about trying to conceive, those who have followed Amy Klein’s writing and experiences, and those looking for an experiential outlet during National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW).
