Publisher's Summary

Izzy Judd shares the story of her and her husband Harry's fertility journey in this honest and heartfelt memoir.

'All I ever wanted was to be a mum - I couldn't wait, and it felt as though my time was so close. But the months started to tick by, with each one ending in disappointment and frustration. And then the inevitable panic started to set in....'

Having been told by doctors that due to Izzy's polycystic ovarian syndrome they would have difficulty conceiving - and after two years of trying - Izzy and Harry turned to IVF. Izzy's aim drawing on her own experience is to break through some of the taboos surrounding miscarriage, IVF and fertility issues.

This brutally honest and deeply personal account will acknowledge the struggles that so many couples go through but will ultimately focus on the positive life-changing and remarkable results that IVF can yield.

One in seven couples in the UK has difficulty conceiving, and although many babies are now born through IVF, there is still a sense of awkwardness around the subject. Izzy hopes that this book will be a companion to those going through similar challenges to those she has experienced. As she herself says, 'No couple should have to go through it alone and in silence.'

A very honest account of fertility struggles

This book was an excellent listen. Anyone going through or has gone through fertility struggles would be interested in this book. Knowing someone has gone through what your going/gone through is comforting. To hear a happy ending should hopefully motivate most

Such an honest and heartfelt story.

It was especially lovely to listen to this book as it was read nby Izzy and Harry themselves. It gives an insight onto the mental struggle of not just infertility but also anxiety.
