How to Cope with IVF - Sylvia Dunn
This practical and no nonsense guide to IVF treatments is a valuable handbook for anyone entering into the highly emotional and complex world of IVF. It has a sensitive yet straight talking manner and covers all the stages of treatment from waiting to start, to managing outcomes, whatever they may be.
Infertility: The Essential Guide - Jane Dean
I must first say that I am a fertility nurse so I am reviewing this from a healthcare provider perspective and not a patient perspective. I should also say that I am not wholly against alternative or complementary therapies and I do feel that they have a place.
The Baby Making Bible - Emma Cannon
Emma Cannon writes that her approach is ‘underpinned by the spirit and principles of Chinese medicine, a great and mighty system of diagnosis and treatment that has been in use for over 2,000 years. Now you are going to use Chinese medicine to improve your over-all health, your fertility and your chances of conceiving and carrying a baby full-term’.
The Pursuit of Motherhood - Jessica Hepburn
This book presents a very personal account of Jessica’s IVF journey. It charts her early concerns with the unfamiliar IVF process, her heartbreak at continued failed attempts, her frustration and the heavy impact the journey has on her relationship with her partner and on her career.
The Smart Guide to Infertility - Professor Robert F Harrison
This book states that ‘it is the smart companion that any couple seeking help for possible infertility can turn to for advice about who and what will be most appropriate for them’. It has chapters discussing conception to birth, male and female infertility factors through to the current treatment options.
Women Code - Alisa Vitti
Woman Code is such a great book for those of us who suffer with bad periods, PCOS and as a result finding we have fertility struggles. Reading and reviewing this book I now feel more capable and confident in being able to help, control and possibly cure or keep at bay, quite a few symptoms.
