Episode details

Ep. 10 of the Optimizing Fertility podcast

In this episode, we hear from Tom Smith, the founder and CEO of Dadi, a New York based startup that provides at-home sperm freezing kits.

Fertility is often pigeonholed as a women’s health issue: but data suggests male factor challenges could account for 40–50% of infertility, and it affects approximately 7% of all men.

Tom talks to ELANZA Wellness's Brittany Hawkins about why he started Dadi, why people use their at-home service, what the process actually entails and how this option has seen a surge in demand during the pandemic. He also talks about common causes of male infertility and what to watch out for, as well as what he believes most needs changing or innovating in reproductive healthcare to better meet people's family building goals.

Tom Smith is cofounder of Dadi, the temperature-controlled at-home fertility test and sperm collection kit. Note: if you wish to purchase a Dadi kit, enter code ELANZA at checkout to receive $25 off your order.
