Infertility is a heartbreaking condition that can affect every aspect of a woman's life, and 9 million American couples struggle with it each year. In Conquering Infertility, Harvard psychologist Dr. Alice Domar-whom Vogue named the "Fertility Goddess"-provides infertile women with what they need most: stress relief, support, and hope. Within a year, more than 50 percent of the patients who used her mind/body techniques along with their infertility treatment conceived pregnancies that resulted in a baby, compared with 20 percent who did not use the mind/body tools. Dr. Domar provides wise, strong words on: * sustaining a career during infertility * coping when friends and family members become pregnant * navigating the medical maze * what to do when infertility threatens your belief in God * exploring other options when treatment fails With Conquering Infertility, women learn how to cope with infertility in a much more positive way and carve a path-however unexpected-toward a rich, full, happy life.

This is a WONDERFUL book! After 3 years of infertility I ordered it used on the internet. As soon as I sat down and flipped through the pages I started to cry because for the first time I felt like somebody really understood what I was going through. Dr. Domar not only validates the roller-coaster ride of emotions that accompany somebody on their infertility journey but offers excellent advice on how to deal with stressful situations and how to support your spouse. This is a MUST have for anybody going through infertility.
