I am very new to infertility and this book gave me a much clearer understanding of all the information I have been hearing about. It is very well organized and clearly written in easy-to-understand language.
The Infertility Survival Handbook
I couldn't put it down! After months of struggling to make a decision about whether or not to try another cycle of IVF this book gave me the insight to get a second opinion from a new doctor (even though I loved and trusted the one I was seeing). That decision alone saved us thousands of dollars, and I don't know how much time I might of spent pursuing the treatment my other doctor had prescribed. As I started on a new treatment plan with a new doctor, Ms. Swire-Falker's book not only continued to educate and guide me but more importantly it was like I had a new best friend who understood exactly how I was feeling. I discovered this book from a blog and I am so grateful I found it! I am currently pregnant and I don't know whether I ever would have gotten here if I hadn't read this book and decided to get that second opinion. The only caveat (why its not 5 stars) is that Ms. Swire-Falker went through a lot to have her family and at times her sadness was palpable. But that's also why I felt like I could relate to her and why I cried in the last chapter when she talks about holding her baby. The bottom line is that she was very, very honest about what she went through and she shares all of it so that you know what to expect and what to do to have a baby.
