Can anyone recommend any good books to read about IVF. I'd really like to read one that tells me someone else's IVF journey so I can know what to expect.

I've read Infertility, IVF and Miscarriage: The Simple Truth by Dr Sean Watermeyer which has been great for explaining the facts but I'd like to read more about what it is actually like from someone who has been through it.

It’s not a book, but there’s a really good podcast called BFN. Both presenters are going through IVF during the series and have a range of guests who are going through/have been through IVF for a number of different reasons.

Avalanche is beautiful but incredibly sad.

I've just read 'get a life' his & her survival guide.
It's a great real life fact finding book that takes you through one couples journey with comments from a consultant on each step.
They just tell it how it is which is really refreshing.
