When IVF doesn’t work

You sometimes find that reading a book review allows you to get  a quick snapshot of what a book is like, and being short of time, you can absorb a few facts but not actually opt to read the book! Perhaps the book title will lodge in your memory and when you haven’t got the rush of school and work you can go to the library or book shop and finally read it. Or maybe not: a book review might be all you need.

A new book by Julia Leigh called Avalanche charts her 6 rounds of IVF, trying to conceive a child, which ends up to be unsuccessful. For Year 11 students still studying the old AQA course, reading the book review of Avalanche gives you an idea of the emotional turmoil and pain that failed IVF can bring.

There are heaps of Youtube stories about couples using IVF to finally bring a child into the world that they’ve always dreamed for. Here’s one with a bit of music but also commentary – it lasts 16 minutes.
