Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In 1997 media attention focused not only on the birth of a child conceived with donor eggs by a 63-year-old mother but also on the birth of septuplets conceived as a result of fertility-enhancing treatments. Here, the authors (Beyond Infertility, LJ 4/1/94), who have been involved in the support and education of infertile couples for many years, explore in compelling detail the medical, legal, ethical, and psychological implications of assisted reproductive technology (ART). The first part of the book explains the alphabet of treatments?IVF, GIFT, ZIFT, and ICSI?with a minimum of technical language, also covering pregnancy after ART and pregnancy loss. The second part looks in detail at third-party parenting options?sperm donation, ovum donation, surrogacy, gestational care, and embryo donation. The authors provide guidelines and suggestions for openness with children born as a result of ART, strongly urging truth concerning genetic origins. A list of resource organizations and references completes this informative and well-written book. Essential for anyone considering ART, this is highly recommended for most libraries.?Jodith Janes, Cleveland Clinic Fdn.

I can't believe that anyone let me start the process of infertility treatment (beyond the clomid stage) without telling me to read this. I found it on my own when having to decide whether my only chance to have a child, egg donation, was right for my husband and myself. I only WISH someone had told me about it sooner. It would have helped me think about all of "this" in a not so crazy way. It's technical, but, those of us who go through infertility procedures know more about the getting pregnant process than most books and online souces give us credit for. These authors treat us like intelligent human beings.

My husband and I have been struggling with infertility for six years and have read several books on the subject. Choosing Assisted Reproduction is the most comprehensive, informative and challenging book that we have come across. We were both relieved to see that the authors raise some of the ethical questions that we are struggling with. They do so in a very sensitive way, always respecting the difficult choices that infertility patients face in this new world of baby making. I recommend this book to anyone going through infertility, as well as to their families and friends.

This compassionately written book has provided a constant reference and framework within which to think during the hugely emotional period of infertility. It has managed to normalise to some extent the weird world in which readers of this book dwell. It has contributed largely to my change of views on the right of the child to know its biological history. I would recommend it as essential reading for anyone going into third party parenting.

As an infertility specialist, I'd heartily recommend this book to all infertile couples - and their doctors as well. The forte of this book is the superb way in which emotional issues have been discussed.

"No other book on infertility was so helpful to my husband and me. We each read it and we discussed it together. We found the ethical discussions especially helpful and were so glad to finally find people willing to tackle them. We found the emotional discussions, especially about ending treatment and about third part alternatives, immensely helpful. This book is outstanding!"
