The book had alot of good information, when I was going through IVF it "held my hand" and answered many of my questions. Some of the resources listed are for different providences in Australia. THe book is good and it give alternatives, if Ivf doesn't work for you. How to move on in plain language so not to talk down to anyone. giveit a try.

I thought the book was really laid out well and very informed however I missed the one spot where it mentions that this is written for Australians. I am not Australian so a lot did not apply but it appears as though precedurewise IVF is very much the same. I really wish there was a U.S. version. Although I did enjoy seeing how the 2 countries differ in health care. All this being said I would never recommed this book to someone in the U.S. but I would 100% recommed this to someone in Australia.

I wish I would've read more about this book before buying it. It is definitely for people living in Australia (like it says in the description, my fault for not noticing). I wouldn't recommend it for anyone living outside Australia. I'm looking for a different book now.
