Updated: Nov 28, 2022
Hello, I’m Katy Bradbury a qualified Nutritional Therapist, private Health Visitor and qualified nurse. I have worked within the field of Women’s Health, Maternal and Children’s Health for many years.
Welcome to my latest podcast. A question I am asked a lot, by both men and women, is how long does it take to get pregnant when you are over 35? Does your fertility reduce after 35? Whether you are just starting your fertility journey or actively trying to conceive, I hope to dispel some myths and guide you in the right direction to happy, healthy eggs and sperm.
