There are many factors that contribute to giving birth to a healthy child, but what about the actual quality of a child-bearing person’s eggs? Is there such a thing as “bad” or “good” eggs? How can we optimize our egg quality?

Stefanie Adler, who first appeared on the Well Woman Podcast in episode 97, joins me to chat all about egg quality, fertility, and preconception care. As a Women’s Hormone and Fertility Expert, Stefanie has incredible wisdom on these topics that aren’t talked about enough. Whether you’re someone who doesn’t want children, has already had children, or is hoping to conceive soon, there is valuable information for all egg-bearing ladies out there.

In this conversation, Stefanie talks about why egg quality is important, how we can preserve our egg health, what happens to our egg quality as we age, ways that hormonal birth control impacts our eggs, habits and dietary choices that improve egg quality, tips to support egg quality before conceiving, and so much more.
