Format: Paperback
'Riding the Infertility Roller Coaster' is a book that speaks not only to those directly affected by infertility, but to those of us who have family members and friends going through the highly emotional experience of treatment, high expectations, and a less than guaranteed outcome.

Waichler offers a comprehensive guide that allows readers to fully understand every aspect of the infertility experience. It is a support and reference guide that is written with heart, professionalism and a true sense of what it means to go through the journey. Hats off to Waichler and the many others who contributed in sharing their personal experiences and giving us some insight to this topic!

To anyone struggling to understand what it's all about; the legal and medical aspects, the financial and emotional issues, and most importantly, the growing number of options available, this is truly a worthwhile read!

Format: Paperback
Waichler's book gives an insider's view to the daily ups and downs of those going through infertility treatment. She clearly outlines the myriad changes, both emotional and technological, that become part of their every day world. Anyone who has a friend who is experiencing infertility will appreciate the added insight into what can be a very private journey. The book highlights voices of some who have made the ride and compassionately shows the many shapes the ending can take.

Format: Paperback
This book is a "user-friendly" handbook for people from all walks of life who are dealing with infertility. Waichler covers it all in a way that readers can not only relate to, but can also easily understand. This book is filled with hope and education that will help us prepare for the journey ahead, whatever it may be. Truly inspiring...

When I was undergoing fertility treatment with my first child, I didn't have a comprehensive resource to turn to for both the big, emotional issues, and the smaller, detail-oriented issues (like what to do with all the paperwork!) I could have really benefited from this book, and am glad it's now available for other women undergoing infertility treatment.
