In today’s episode, I interview Arielle Spiegel, the founder and CEO of CoFertility. Cofertility is a dynamic website where you can get all your fertility questions answered. CoFertility can’t make you get pregnant faster. But they can make the waiting less lonely and confusing. I love Arielle's story of how and why she founded CoFertility. She founded it in the middle of her own fertility struggles. She says she had a great doctor and a clinic but she still had questions. Sometimes these questions were too embarrassing to ask. Sometimes they felt stupid. Sometimes they happened in the middle of the night. She would look online and find some answers but they weren’t credible, out of touch, or completely overwhelming. So she started CoFertility to curate the expert answers to every fertility-related question all in one place. My personal favorite resource they have is a full database of funding resources to pay for fertility treatments. Check this out and more at www.cofertility.com Enjoy the episode!
CoFertility is a platform that provides resources and tools to answer the tons of unanswered questions around fertility. Infertility affects 1 in 8 couples trying to conceive, and with information vastly spread out across forums, blogs, and clinic websites, Co provides helpful, digestible fertility content all in one place—while keeping it real. We aim to un-complicate the fertility journey.
Prior to founding Co, Arielle led digital marketing strategy initiatives at Victoria's Secret PINK, Coach, and many other consumer brands. She thrives on bolstering brand relevance among key audiences, especially when they involve first-to-market technology and content partnerships.
