Approximately 1 in 5 heterosexual couples struggle to achieve pregnancy after 1 year of trying to conceive in the U.S. Only 12% of women use fertility services to receive help conceiving a child. In Alaska we have not had access to specialized assisted reproductive procedures that are now available. What are the causes of infertility? When should you see an infertility specialist? What help is available to achieve pregnancy? Dr. Jillian Woodruff and her guest share these answers with you to help achieve a healthy pregnancy.

Host: Dr. Jillian Woodruff MD


  • Dr. Katie Ostrom, MD, owner of Katie Ostrom, MD, LLC, a fertility-based private practice that performs In Vitro Fertilization in Homer.
