In Episode Six, the final instalment, we look at IVF and fertility assistance, as well as parenting and support in the 21st century. Technology has greatly changed the pregnancy and parenting journey - from apps to track ovulation, to blogs about packing a lunchbox. Perhaps the biggest technological advance being IVF.

In this episode, we hear from Dr Andy Stamatiou, and former Forum Manager Jen Houston.

  • Dr Stamatiou is a fertility specialist with the Queensland public health system for 22 years. He started an Obstetrics and Gynaecology private practice three years ago and joined City Fertility Centre as a Clinical Associate in 2010. Dr Stamatiou has a special interest in fertility issues related to endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome.
  • Jen has been a member of the Bub Hub since 2005, and has recently concluded her job as forum manager. She has two young boys and leads a rather chaotic life balancing several jobs and motherhood.

Part One

Brad and Andy talk all about IVF - when to start thinking about fertility treatment, what you do before IVF, and the current success rates for IVF. They discuss the most common fertility issues Andy sees, the IVF procedure, and how IVF has changed the pregnancy and parenting journey.

Part Two

Brad and Jen talk about parenting in the 21st century. Jen explains who best benefits from online parenting communities, what is talked about in our forum, and how the forum helps parents in many ways.

Part Three

Brad and Jen explain the various aspects of the Bubhub website, including the forum and how it is moderated, the articles and blogs, the directory that lists all Australian businesses to do with parenting.

Jen talks about how she finds the site useful as a parent, and the useful emails you can sign up for, and the reviews section which helps parents select the best, tried and tested products for their families.
