by Helen Davies
This is an honest and open account of the problems faced by couples who are going through secondary infertility and all the emotional highs and lows that encompasses. Helen has really shared a very frank insight into her and her husband’s journey and the book really conveys the rollercoaster of highs and lows that couples can experience whilst going through IVF cycles. It contains great moments of humour along with the heart wrenching times but above all it offers comfort and support to couples who are facing a similar journey with an overall message of hope. Often couples facing secondary infertility can feel guilt for wanting a second child and this book looks at how isolating that can make someone feel and by reading that others in that position have had similar thoughts and experiences it really does make you feel like you are not alone.
The foreword by our Chief Executive Susan Seenan also gives a good understanding of the sort of issues that secondary infertility couples face.
