In this debut episode, InfertileAF host Ali Prato - a Brooklyn-based journalist and mom-of-two - talks about the four years of infertility hell she went through to have her second child, Sonny. Ali’s goal with this podcast is to create a community and a safe space for women to tell their stories, and here, she gets more personal than ever about her own journey. With a trademark mix of honesty and humor, Ali talks about her four miscarriages, her struggle with infertility depression, and the countless tear-drenched fights with her husband, Vince. She talks about how therapy and SoulCycle helped - but how seeing other knocked up women - in real life and in and certain diapers commercials - would cause her to spiral. Also covered: Clunky sex on demand, shooting up in a gas station bathroom, a trip to a psychic, and why the Beatles song, “Here Comes the Sun,” became her anthem.
