More on conception and breastfeeding 

fertility

As a follow to the last episode about having a baby and discussions of conception and breastfeeding we revisit conversations with previous guests who have related specialist views.

Reproductive geneticist Nada Kubikova speaks about declining fertility and miscarriages as well as her clinical work on Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis which can be used during IVF to identify embryos affected by genetic defects (recorded Feb 2017). At the time of recording Nada was a doctoral researcher within the Institute of Reproductive Sciences at the University of Oxford now based in the Oxford Science Park.

Dr Julie Smith is an Associate Professor at the Research School of Population Health at the Australian National University (ANU) who has been an expert advisor to the World Health Organisation. Julie speaks about some of the evolutionary health benefits of breastfeeding and public policy contexts and impacts of the hospitalisation of births and the emergence of milk formula (recorded Sept 2017).
