Sarah Heywood is the Founder of The Journey, a new digital media platform dedicated to providing people with evidence based, easy-to-understand information on fertility, conception, pregnancy and the early years. It began in 2017 when Sarah herself, was struggling to get pregnant and was growing tired of doctors trying to prescribe drugs, rather than address her underlying issues. As an investment banker for nearly a decade and a half, Sarah used her skills and spent three years researching and assembling The Journey advisory board which is made up of Experts and Academics that back up & verify all the information. She also graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, specialising in hormone health. Exactly one year later, her son Matteo was born.
In today’s episode we dive into what sperm health has dropped 50% over the last four decades and how we can take matters into our own hands when it comes to male infertility. We chat about how hormones affect sperm health, the role Vitamin D plays in fertility, why men- to a degree, also have a ‘biological clock’, why recurrent miscarriages can also be due to sperm DNA fragmentation and not just because of an issue with the woman and so much more!
