Insightful, frank, and friendly advice on overcoming infertility -- from two women who have lived through it all.
You can't open a magazine these days without seeing a blissful forty-plus celebrity mom cradling her new bundle of joy. But, like so much of Hollywood life, the truth about pregnancy and fertility is glossed over. We don't see the tremendous amount of financial, emotional, and physical effort that couples who are having trouble conceiving go through.
In this warm, funny, and empathetic book, journalist Julie Vargo and literary agent Maureen Regan -- women who have personally experienced infertility -- give the lowdown on what women really need to know. Hormones, sperm counts, uterine lining -- nothing is too personal for these outspoken women. They also recruit their friends, husbands, and doctors to dish on everything from keeping your marriage healthy to assessing your financial needs to herbal treatments and blood tests. Everything you wish you knew about infertility, and how others faced it, is covered in this book.
Most important, Vargo and Regan provide information they wished someone had given them, especially things most doctors don't share. What you don't know may cost you what you want -- a family of your own. Your OB/GYN may not be trained in infertility, and won't necessarily give you the answers you need. Like Vargo and Regan, many women believe they will get pregnant when they decide it is time and are shocked when they don't. Now they share their stories in the hopes of preventing other women from experiencing the traumas they did. Their advice is simple -- gather all the information you can and find the doctor who will listen to your needs.
A Few Good Eggs provides the resources you need to face infertility -- and the warm support of a couple of good friends.
