Ep. 11 of the Optimizing Fertility podcast

In this episode, we hear from Emma Menzies, a fertility patient turned coach about what she wants fertility clinics to learn from based on her experiences.

Whilst working as a lawyer, Emma Menzies spent 6 years in what she calls a "relentless" fertility journey. Her efforts to manage this alongside the other demands of her life and career ultimately led to burnout.

Emma spoke to Catherine Hendy from ELANZA about what she experienced on her journey through fertility care and how fertility care providers can do better to support the mental and emotional needs of the people they treat.


Emma Menzies is a former fertility clinic patient and employment lawyer, who retrained as a coach and NLP practitioner. Emma's practice, Ready Steady Coach, focuses on fertility at work and facilitating career fulfilment for professional women experiencing fertility challenges.
