Drawing on interviews with specialists and couples, and covering everything medical from alternative therapies, fertility drugs, IVF, donor eggs and miscarriages to the frustration, disappointment and heartbreak that such a journey brings, this book is a must-have, friendly, and more often than not funny guide on how to try, and try again.

I purchased as a gift for 2 of my daughters....


From my observations with just my daughters, if pregnancy isn't happening you want to know why. Advice from their Dad to just be patient and keep trying just doesn't hit the spot.....so I purchased the book!!!
