Welcome to Episode 36!

In episode 36, we interview naturopathic doctor, researcher, and women's health expert, Dr. Jordan Robertson.

Throughout the episode we talk about some of the reasons that it's often challenging for women to get the care they deserve when experiencing pregnancy loss or fertility challenges, why it's so important to use an in-depth health history to drive testing and treatment decisions, which tests should be considered when investigating miscarriage, and some simple strategies that you can implement starting today to reduce your risk of pregnancy loss going forward.
