Description

Infertility never leaves you no matter what the outcome is - it does shape you and it shapes the way you bring your children up. One in six couples finds it difficult to conceive, and many thousands of babies are born in the UK every year as a result of fertility treatment. For women who finally have that long-awaited positive pregnancy test, the expectation is that they will now be the same as any other pregnant woman. The reality is that the experience of infertility continues to resonate during pregnancy, birth and often long afterwards. Packed with case histories and informed by expert advice, this is the first book to address the specific practical and emotional issues experienced by women who have struggled to become pregnant and provides much-needed reassurance and support. Contents include: The long-awaited positive result; Pregnancy; Birth; The early days; Postnatal depression; Family life; Trying again; An only child; More than one (twins etc); The teenage years and beyond; Donor families; Miscarriage.
