We are exposed to hundreds of thousands of chemicals each and every day. What impact is this having on our ability to create a healthy pregnancy?

As my guest today, embryologist Lucy Lines explains, it has a big impact and we need to take action now.

Lucy is an embryologist who likes to describe herself as a Fertility Educator and an IVF Advocate, with her sole purpose being to help women and couples find the information they’re searching for, in the knowledge that it is science based, comes from a reputable source and from someone who isn’t trying to sell you anything more.

I have previously interviewed Lucy about the biology of what’s needed to create a healthy pregnancy. Today, we’re discussing all the chemicals we are exposed to in our modern world and how they can:

• Reduce egg quality

• Reduce sperm health

• Affect our risk of miscarriage

• Reduce our ability to create a healthy pregnancy.

In this episode Lucy explains what endocrine disrupting chemicals and the specific impact they are having on the creation of healthy sperm, healthy eggs and a healthy pregnancy.

Unfortunately, the release of chemicals to market is largely unregulated, which means we need to take matters into our own hands.
