Share story

Infertility is something many people struggle with, but few discuss. So, what is the latest science and medicine for assisted reproduction? What is misunderstood about infertility? And what support systems exist for couples or individuals struggling to have biological children?

MPR News host Kerri Miller talked to three experts on infertility for this week's Friday roundtable: 

Elyse Ash — founder and CEO of Fruitful Fertility, a non-profit fertility mentorship project.

Linda Hammer Burns — a licensed psychologist and associate professor at the University of Minnesota Medical School.

Dr. Elizabeth Stewart — chair of the division of reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the Mayo Clinic.
