Summary

Presents a personal memoir of the author (and her husband's) trials and tribulations with IVF. This book aims to show that the fertility game is like a marathon, where you just have to keep on running - no matter how many times the finishing line is moved, no matter how heavy the going or unpleasant the terrain, you keep on going.

The Stork Club Summary

The Stork Club by Imogen Edwards-Jones

When I was a teenager, I thought you could get pregnant from sitting in a jacuzzi. Not that I'm sure I even knew what a jacuzzi was, but I knew they were racy places where racy things happened. Men, as far as I remember, didn't even have to be there. So long as they'd been in the water in some sort of excitable state, pregnancy was inevitable - even if you kept your pants on.

In her words, 'The fertility game is like a marathon, where you just have to keep on running. No matter how many times the finishing line is moved, no matter how increasingly heavy the going or unpleasant the terrain, you pick yourself up and, ever more determinedly, keep on going. Until one day, you pray, you might just make it...
