Best of Both Worlds podcast: Journey to motherhood with Dr. Meggie Smith

Reproductive technology has advanced a lot in the past few decades. That makes new pathways to parenthood possible.

In this week’s episode of Best of Both Worlds, Sarah interviews Dr. Meggie Smith, a reproductive endocrinologist in Nashville. Dr. Smith helps people build families and has also taken a different path herself — freezing her eggs during fellowship and then moving forward with a pregnancy as a solo parent. She shares her story on how she is achieving the best of both worlds.

(You can also listen to BOBW through iHeartMedia’s channels!)

In the Q&A, a listener asks how to cope with first trimester exhaustion and nausea when she hasn’t told people about the pregnancy yet. This can be a really rough time for many people (physically and mentally!) even if you are thrilled to be pregnant, so Sarah and I share some advice.

Please give the episode a listen! And please consider joining Sarah and me for round 2 of Best Laid Plans Live! This year I will be officially co-hosting this retreat in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, from November 7-9, 2024. We will learn some planning and time management strategies, and as this is in late 2024 we will plan 2025 (yes!) together. Our capacity is limited (after opening ticket sales to prior attendees and the BOBW Patreon crew this weekend we are well over half sold out) so if this sounds interesting to you, you can grab your ticket here. Early bird pricing is available until March 10.
