A Thousand Needles
Infertility affects about 15 percent of couples globally, amounting to 48.5 million couples, yet somehow infertility and IVF are taboo subjects, often hidden and un-talked about. A Thousand Needles: How to Take Control of Your IVF Journey removes the stigma with a touch of sass and an unapologetically honest voice, exploring one couple’s IVF challenges and discoveries in order to normalize the infertility conversation. This guidebook addresses the medical and personal sides of the fertility coin, sifts through drug and treatment options, dispels myths, breaks taboos, and offers that elusive kernel of hope to those just beginning IVF or nearing its desperate end. The combination of meticulous research and personal experience that resulted in a successful pregnancy and birth for the author, coupled with an honest retelling of the emotional and physical impacts it had on both partners, gives readers a solid cheat sheet of what to expect as they traverse their own IVF journey.
