Episode 82: How to Change the Way we Approach the Initiation of Infertility (Shereen Öberg)

Our guest today, Shereen Oberg draws from a unique and rich mix of influences in her women’s empowerment work.

She is the author of The Law of Positivism,
she’s a yoga teacher and acupuncturist, and alongside this she holds a business and economics degree, and has recently completed a Master's degree in Global Sexual and Reproductive health and rights.

She comes from a long lineage of strong, Kurdish matriarchs and political, social rights activists who shared their natural birth stories with her, this inspired her to train both as a nurse and a doula. Today we chat about how all of these influences wove together in her recent thesis about how we need to change the way we approach infertility across the globe.
