A book for those who may want children, who have thought about having children, and even for those who have had children. This book holds many gems in the way of information, humour, and emotional challenges. As a woman who has had children, I was hesitant to read it when a friend recommended it, but found myself being drawn into the author's quest to have a child. It considers many of the moral, ethical and practical dilemmas faced by a woman wanting a child, who becomes more and more aware is unable to have naturally.
Not only is this book a mature and honest resource for those wanting to plan to have children, it is an important insight for those who have never had to, or will ever have to endure the costly and complicated IVF rollercoaster. This book is a crucial read for IVF partners, friends and family in explaining seemingly strange behaviour as well as the effects of the IVF torments, drugs, doctor's double-speak and let-downs.
I came away thinking how lucky I was to have been forced to have my children early (unplanned), and that I will never take my children for granted again.
In short, a great, easy to read book full of laughs, the odd cry and a few lessons.
