new podcast episode:

From Infertility to becoming a Sudden Cardiac Arrest Advocate, Meet Tess Kossow

On today’s episode I had Tess Kossow, a certified fertility coach, author, and Woman of Impact award winner to share about her fertility books and cardiac arrest.

She has written two books: “I’m Very Ferris: A Child’s Story about In Vitro Fertilization” and “I’m Very Ferris Takes a Bubble Bath.”

Both are children picture books on IVF through eyes of the child, but also great gifts for anyone. She wanted to create something to help children to know a little of where they came from and how they came to be.

We then dive into her cardiac health advocacy after experience sudden cardiac arrest in 2020 and surviving. She discusses how she turned this situation into a way to help others but also how it has been therapeutic for herself. Which lead to her connecting with Go Red For Women and the American Heart Association. Heart health for women is often overlooked until it’s too late.
