Natalie Silverman is passionate about fertility education and hosts The Fertility Podcast, the UK’s first podcast dedicated to supporting people struggling to conceive. She also offers podcast consulting to creative agencies and currently hosts “Health Unwrapped” a podcast from Australian supplement company Bioglan.
In 2014, Natalie launched The Fertility Podcast after becoming pregnant from fertility treatment and not being able to find relatable content about her experience.
Since its launch, Natalie has created over 300 episodes with more than half a million downloads and listeners in over 90 countries. The Fertility Podcast is always within the top 100 health podcasts globally and was the UK’s first dedicated voice to this topic. It has paved the way for other podcasts in the fertility space highlighting the need and desire for people struggling with infertility to be able to hear more from others going through the same.

Natalie’s passion for women’s health is what has kept her podcast growing over the last 7 years, as her mission is to empower, educate and support men with up to date credible information. In July 2020, Natalie launched her bespoke fertility coaching service working 1:1 and in groups to help people better understand their emotions and support their mental health.
Natalie brings empathy and compassion to this challenging conversation in all her conversations about it and continues to work within the fertility sector to help bridge the gap between the patient and the industry.
A regular media spokesperson, Natalie has been featured in many titles including The Times, BBC World Service and BBC 5 Live, Grazia & You magazine talking about the impact of treatment and her very personal decision to donate her remaining embryos to science rather than having further treatment to extend her family.
Natalie is keen to change the narrative on One Child families and in 2019, Natalie joined an independent steering committee for Ferring Pharmaceuticals, as part of their ‘Fertility Awks’ video campaign, sharing a story of when she was publicly challenged about not having more children.
From sharing her experience of going through fertility treatment whilst hosting her breakfast radio show in the media, Natalie was invited to speak at AXA Insurance’s Diversity and Inclusion festival highlighting why fertility issues need to be understood in the workplace.
In January 2020, Natalie co-founded a new initiate called Fertility Matters at Work, working with corporates to help employees understand their rights regarding fertility treatment and employers to be able to support their staff better by understanding more about the emotional toll of treatment. Natalie continues to speak in the corporate setting about this issue, most recently working with Barclays Bank.
Natalie also hosts webinars and events both on and offline and has created bespoke podcast content for Fertility Fest, The Fertility Show, Surrogacy UK, Ovusense and the HFEA Annual Conference. In 2019, Natalie joined an independent steering committee for Ferring Pharmaceuticals, as part of their ‘Fertility Awks’ video campaign, sharing her story of being the parent of one child.
In February 2021, The Fertility Podcast is relaunching with Crowd Network, following the fertility journey from starting to think about having a baby to knowing your options when treatment doesn’t work and you might have to stop trying.
