Review

""Love and Infertility is a unique book that helps those battling infertility realize a couple is already a family..." -- Lisa Rosenthal, American Infertility Association

Kristen is a friend to countless women suffering the pain of infertility. -- Dianne Gill, Woman’s World Magazine

From the Inside Flap

How can you balance life, your marriage and the process of creating your family?

When trying to create a family, a couple’s normal life can be immediately and radically changed. Overwhelming feelings of confusion, hopelessness, and loss of control can leave couples working to overcome infertility unable to communicate with each other or proceed calmly with their daily lives. The effort to create a baby overrides all other activities, and after a while, making love can turn into making work!

Love and Infertility provides a lifeline for couples struggling with infertility. Author Kristen Magnacca shares twenty-eight simple yet powerful strategies to help couples open lines of communication, maintain a sense of control over their lives, and help them deal with the changes they’ll face while working to become parents.

Divided into three sections—Creating Your Destiny, Communicating as One, and Rolling with the Changes—Love and Infertility offers insight and direction to help couples navigate the swamp of infertility. Kristen introduces each strategy with a true experience from her own long struggle with infertility and then provides a step-by-step system to implement the recommendation into daily life.

In Love and Infertility, you’ll find:

· Twenty-eight effective strategies that correspond to the average twenty-eight day fertility cycle

· Useful tips for couples in all stages of conceiving—from those just starting out to those who have been trying for years

· Interactive exercises for men, for women, and for both partners together: goals lists, talking points, "red-flag" phrases, and the patented "Elevator Speech" to rescue you from any situation

Kristen and her husband, Mark, co-founders of a successful corporate training firm, helped peak performers at Fortune 500 companies across the nation achieve greater levels of professional and personal success. When faced with their own infertility, the applied their proven business strategies to heal themselves, repair their marriage, and look toward the future. Their two children are proof positive that these strategies work!

Though this time of your life may be emotional and strenuous, Kristen’s words of wisdom can help you regain control of your life, your marriage, and your happiness. You don’t have to go through this alone!

Kristen is both funny and wise. She's been there, both professionally and personally, and she's learned from it. Through anectodes and practical tips, she shares her victories and lets us, too, learn from her failures. Her book is an honest, practical and easy to read compilation of very personal anecdotes and well-researched strategies for finding balance during a very trying time. Read it-- you'll be glad she is holding your hand on the rocky journey to parenthood!

Love and Infertility was such a stress relief for me. The book offered a wide variety of tips on how to communicate better with your partner to creating a fertility game plan to making a goals list. The book is an easy read and is also good for couples that are looking to seek balance in their lives. I'm thankful for this new perspective on infertility and will recommend it to all my friends!

Thanks to Love and Infertility I'm back in control of my emotions and communicating better with my husband! We now have our own elevator speech and I'm much more comfortable in social situations. We're also using the gratitude list to combat our negative feelings of being childless. I recommend this book to anyone battling infertility!

The book has a "buffet" of ideas of techinques for dealing with the stresses of infertility. Ideas include practical communication starters, and thought-provoking ways of looking at your partner's and your own needs and communication styles. Some ideas I left on the buffet table. With some others, I piled my plate high!

Useful for anyone who is just starting out or well along the infertility treatment path, and is finding it stressful (and you'd be hard pressed not to).
