As someone who has just begun to recognize the possibility of infertility, even though I could empathize with a lot of her feelings of frustration, loss and jealousy, I did not find this book to be encouraging, educational or uplifting (though it was engrossing). I think it is enough information for those who are curious as to "what is my friend who says she's nervous about doing IVF up to?" I did not think in provided much information about what one could expect in terms of tests, treatment protocols or specific pros and cons of her various treatments or even the specifics of how she managed to stay employed during the still invasive treatments leading up to IVF (when she would speak in generalities about turning down assignments and opportunities). As an aside, Ms. Scully makes IVF seem significantly more difficult and frightening than many other people who have described their experiences in other places. Finally, as some other commentators have mentioned, there's no mention of the resources she found helpful (beyond family and friends) or specific practices she adopted to help salvage her relationship.Read more ›
I have been struggling with infertility for almost 3 years and it is difficult and all-consuming. I think about it constantly and in every aspect of my life. Finances, friendships, my relationship with my husband, and my emotional and physical health. I have tried staying positive, but really, no one understands what it is like. This book feels like I've spoken to myself - like I've been able to vocalize my feelings about IVF and I feel stronger for reading it. I picked up this book two months before our second IVF cycle (Sept 2013) and am so glad I did.
If you need a memoir that is honest and real, Motherhoodwinked is a wonderful read.
Best of luck to all of us still hoping for a child to bring into our families of two!
The journey that Anne-Marie Scully & her husband have been on is heartbreaking to follow but in spite of the sad story being told there were so many uplifting moments in this book. Conquering new challenges and discovering a strength in their relationship that carries them through the worst of times.
I highly recommend this book to anyone that is struggling with infertility, anyone who is early on in their journey to start a family but is feeling that sense of impending doom with each passing month, anyone who has friends facing infertility and wants to understand how best to support them and anyone who simply enjoys reading an elegantly crafted and poignant story of love, tragedy and hope.
This author deserves her happy ending and I look forward to reading the follow up book when that moment comes.
