Having a baby after cancer: Live Q&A

FEATURING Laurel Fertility Care  |   18 Oct 2022

Unpacking your treatment plan

Tying in with Breast Cancer Awareness month, we caught up with world-renowned fertility expert Dr Smikle – medical director at Laurel Fertility Care – to cover this much-requested topic from our TTC community. 

Having a baby after cancer is amazing, a testament to your strength and resilience but also, an undertaking. TRB founder and CEO Eloise covers all bases with Dr Smikle, including: 

  • types of cancer treatment, and their impact on fertility 
  • fertility preservation options
  • do people need to wait after cancer treatment, before TTC? 
  • navigating recurrences 
  • are pregnancies after cancer automatically ‘high risk’?
