About Fempower Health
As the founder, I want you to know I am personally vested in changing women's health. My passion went into overdrive during my fertility journey, where I advocated in DC and Albany, NY (pictured here). Since then, I have learned the issues extend to all women's health. I am here for each of you!
One Woman's Health: Georgie's Story
Who knew that discovering a paper I wrote in 1992 about the FDA mandating women be included in clinical trials was only the beginning of what would become my lifelong passion for women's health. I spent the next 20+ years trying to figure out how I could achieve my dream of a making an impact - a big one. At the age of 35, I was thrown into a heart wrenching path down a 4-year infertility journey and then secondary infertility. Even with a career in healthcare, I was stunned by the process. It was overwhelming, chaotic, impossible to understand why answers were so unclear and opinions varied. I won't lie. I was angry!
Once I recovered from it all, I dug into the issues, and I knew that if I could bring to the forefront information hidden from women just starting out and more known by those who have been on this path a long time, the journey may shorten. The pain may be less. Women would be empowered.
As I dug into the data and women's stories, saw a theme and realized - this is not a problem with infertility. It is a problem with women's health. Being dismissed by doctors. Taking years to find answers. Shame. Lack of answers. Diving into Google rabbit holes. I also found, if you know where to dig, the answers are there - but rarely are they a quick fix.
It is for this reason that I created the podcast. The Fempower Health Podcast is answering women's health questions. I ask hard questions of my guests. As a result, I help educate women on finding solutions for symptoms, conditions, life stages, but I also empower them.
