As part of my Taking Control series I have interviewed the lovely Chris Lawson, who created the IVF Dad Podcast about infertility from a man's perspective.

Chris talks about how he felt whilst he and his wife were struggling to get pregnant and going through treatment. He also gives lots of great advice on coping through treatment and as a couple.

We talk about how men often hold in how they are feeling so that they can support their partner and not add on to their worries, how lots of men feel like an onlooker in the process and the importance of talking and keeping the communication with you partner.

This interview is a great source of validation for men going through treatment and lots of actionable advice on coping, its well worth a watch for men and couples.

You can find Chris' podcast athttps://www.ivfdad.com/ and you can follow him on Instagram athttps://www.instagram.com/ivfdadpodcast/

The taking control series has been developed to give you lots of ways you can start to feel more in control, whatever your journey looks like, and to highlight the different support available to you.
