This extremely important & award-winning documentary features our very own Dr. Stephanie Marshall Thompson and follows five women of color and their journeys through infertility.

This poignant documentary raises the veil on a topic that still is seen as “taboo”. Where sharing your experience of the profound psychological and physical pain of infertility is expected to be muted and is often trivialized.
Executive produced by Sheinelle Jones, journalist and news anchor for NBC News and The Today Show, Jones shines a light on these five brave women as they navigate their diagnosis. From fibroids to endometriosis to miscarriages – this documentary examines not only the conditions that cause infertility but also empowers with solutions like IVF, Egg Freezing and Surrogacy.
For Dr. Thompson, access to care and educating all women about infertility is the heart of her practice. She is a frequent speaker and has been a featured advocate for fertility care on many noteworthy programs like CNN, HLN and the “Dr. Oz Show”.
“Infertility is one of the top stressors in terms of a medical diagnosis. I’m honored to be a part of this important documentary that tells the untold stories that bind us all together as women and that will make us stronger!” — Stephanie M. Thompson, MD
