About this work


"Like many women today I reached a point in my life when I decided it was a good time to start a family of my own. I assumed that pregnancy would just happen when I was ready. But it didn't. I chose the IVF pathway, and here I tell my story of the emotional and psychological challenges I faced from the IVF journey itself, and of how these challenges impacted on my way of thinking and self-belief system. My confidence spiralled and alongside my eroded sense of self-worth, past experiences bubbled to the surface - experiences I had never truly accepted and moved on from. I have developed my own strategies and cognitive processes to deal with IVF issues and other emotional 'baggage'. From recognising and understanding "hormone logic", to asking myself the "5 Questions", I have survived IVF and emerged emotionally cleansed."-- Provided by publisher.
