June is Pride Month, and this year we have an update from a couple we featured previously: Samantha and Jessica Pace. They shared their journey in this episode: Episode 75: LGBTQ+ Family Building: 10 IUIs Before IVF Success.

When we left off, Jessica and Samantha were expecting their first child through IVF, after going through 10 failed IUIs first. Excitedly awaiting their daughter, the Paces had no idea that the COVID-19 pandemic was just around the corner, and their first taste of motherhood would be very different than they expected.

In today’s episode, Jessica and Samantha give us an update on motherhood, while Dr. Paula Amato of Oregon Health and Science University highlights family building options for same-sex couples.

Guests: Samantha and Jessica Pace, Progyny Members

Expert: Dr. Paula Amato, Fertility Specialist at Oregon Health and Science University

Host: Dan Bulger
