I've been looking for books specifically about egg donation/ivf, but not having much luck.

I'll be going for ED early next year and really want to be in the best shape physically and mentally.

Any book suggestions would be much appreciatedsmile

Hi Isthismummy,

When you say books about egg donation, do you mean about the implications for you and your child in using egg donation? I can recommend one called 'Having Your Baby Thru Egg Donation' which is available on Amazon.

Any other information you are hoping for? I am a mum with donor embryo conceived twins who are now 11, so do ask!!! xxx

Hi Carajllo

I meant more a guide to the egg donation process, but I will definitely have a look for that book as well🙂 We're planning on telling any dc we might have the truth of their origins.

May I ask if your twins know? And how it's been for you all if so? I think the main worry I have is how our dc will feel about being an egg donor child.

The Pea That Was Me. Not sure who it is by, but my relative gave it to her donor-conceived daughter and she shows me the book all the time. She has been reading it since she was 3 and knows who all the characters are represented by in her own life.

Sorry, just read that you meant for you not babies! But keep in mind for when you do need it.

Not a book actually, but recommend visiting eggdonationfriends com. They have got lots of materials and articles. Hope this helps xx
