Diana Falzone is an American journalist.

Diana was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2016, after a specialist found a mass in her uterus. In a 2017 article, she states that she underwent a 3.5 hour surgery to remove endometriosis from her uterus, ovaries and bladder that was causing "excessive bleeding and paralysing pain".

"It was just days after my 33rd birthday when my doctor delivered the worst news of my life: I will likely never have a child and fulfill my greatest wish of being a mother.... When hit with the news that I am infertile, I could not stop crying. And not only was it very unlikely I’d ever conceive, my health was in jeopardy."

After tests found she had a low egg reserve, she completed three rounds of egg retrieval to save any remaining eggs.

Diana gave birth to her son in 2018.
