Exclusive Interview: Dr. Shahin Ghadir Talks About Fertility

This week Celebrity Baby Scoop got the chance to talk to Dr. Shahin Ghadir all about fertility. He has worked with various celebrities including Mercedes “MJ” Javid from Shahs of Sunset. Dr. Ghadir feels like he was lead to work in this field. During his residency, he got the chance to do a fertility rotation. He realized how working in this field could be life-changing and decided to go that way with his career. So many people can’t have children and a fertility doctor is the only way that being a parent can become a reality for them.

When it comes to his clients, Dr. Shanin Ghadir has seen several celebrities, but he has clients of all types. People from around the world come to see him due to recommendations they have received.

Dr. Ghadir explained how there used to be a bit of a stigma around using a fertility doctor. It isn’t like that at all now, though. Instead, it is more accepted and in some areas even considered “hip.” People aren’t afraid to admit that they have seen a fertility doctor to get assistance with getting pregnant.

He explained that there have been a lot of advancements in the field of fertility over the years. One big thing is that they can now do genetic testing on an embryo. There have also been advances where they can find out when the best time is to place the embryo in the uterus. As Dr. Shanin Ghadir explained, this can really increase the chances of a pregnancy happening after fertility treatments.

If you want to get fertility treatments but can’t afford them, Dr. Shanin Ghadir can help you out with it. His office has financial counselors available to help clients figure out how to make it work for them. He is even working on a charity called “Fertility for All.” It is a very new charity, so they have lists of other charities that help people get grants or loans for fertility treatments.

They also offer a lot of information on their website to help people with financial options and to get more information on fertility treatments. Dr. Shanin Ghadir has made it clear that he wants to help his patients to become parents.

Dr. Shahin Ghadir has an Instagram page where you can keep up with the latest updates on what he is doing in the fertility world.

Riding to Vegas on a motorcycle, clubbing three nights in a row in Sin City – Prince Harry is certainly making the most of his time out West.

The fun continued this week as the Prince, on break from military training in Gila Bend, Ariz. for the Thanksgiving holiday, headed to Los Angeles.

After arriving in the city Tuesday evening, Harry, 27, kicked off the trip Wednesday with a visit to Universal Studios. After a behind-the-scenes studio tour and gourmet lunch, the Prince took a spin on various rides, including King Kong 360 3-D, the War of the Worlds, Jurassic Park: The Ride and Revenge of the Mummy, which he rode twice.

Following a win at the park’s carnival games, Prince Harry gifted his prize – a giant stuffed Curious George – to a nearby child.

Later that evening, the Prince was spotted kicking back with a group of pals at his Beverly Hills hotel, happily chatting with one of his female friends.

Biggest Loser: How Alison Sweeney Has a Healthy Thanksgiving

It’s Thanksgiving on The Biggest Loser and that means temptations – apple pie, turkey and gravy, ham and mashed potatoes. Each winter, the contestants are faced with what they used to eat for the holidays and the realization of how many calories they’d consume.

More importantly, the contestants learn what to appreciate and be thankful for. With Vinny, the testimony of his love for his girlfriend and her son is so moving, especially him wanting to be a positive role model for her son. As a mom, when I see the contestants working to be better role models for their kids or the kids in their lives, it’s so fulfilling because not only are they changing their lives, but they’re also helping the fight against childhood obesity.

Biggest Loser: How Alison Sweeney Has a Healthy Thanksgiving

During a healthy Thanksgiving prepared by the trainers, Bob revealed his sister’s struggle with her weight. This was really moving and you could see the impact it had on the other contestants. I’ve known Bob for several years now – he is such an amazing man. There are so many things about him I admire. So much of the time the Biggest Loser audience only sees him reaching out to the contestants. Listening to Bob describe his struggles to find a way to change his sister’s life gives you a glimpse of why I love Bob so much, and how much he cares about everyone that has been on the Ranch in the show’s 12 seasons.

Since joining the show, I’ve learned the same lessons as the contestants in realizing that Thanksgiving is about time with family and friends and that you can make healthier choices in the meal that we share.

This year, my parents, brothers and their families will all be at my house for Thanksgiving. Ben and Megan will have their six cousins to play with and we’ll make sure to all be active outside (if the L.A. weather allows us) before and after Thanksgiving dinner. I’ve already signed up at my gym for the Thanksgiving Day spin class. That’ll start my metabolism off right on Thursday.

This year I’m in charge of the pumpkin pie – my favorite. We are going to make celery root mash instead of potatoes. And, I’m trying a new technique I learned from Nate Berkus – I’m going to use these smaller dinner plates I have to serve so that people keep their portions on the conservative side. If people need to go back for seconds, that’s fine. But slowing down, eating a little less in the first round might help you feel more full and hopefully prevent people from having that overly-full feeling afterwards. I’ll let you know if it works!

I hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving with friends and family. Speaking of friends and family, make sure to tune in tonight for The Biggest Loser Where Are They Now special airing (9 p.m. ET). The Biggest Loser family of contestants are so special to me and I love sharing the excitement of gathering everyone together to see how they’re doing since leaving the show. We have some surprises for you, bloopers and even some sneak peeks at the rest of the season.

And, tune in Sunday to TV Guide Channel for Ali Landry and my special, Hollywood Moms Night (8 p.m. ET).

Then make sure to tune into The Biggest Loser next Tuesday to find out the ramifications of John’s choices to give a 1-lb. disadvantage and a vote of elimination to Sunny this week and how it’ll impact his relationships in the house, particularly with Antone and Sunny. Do you think John should have voted differently?
