What a rich resource! I discovered Riding the Infertility Roller Coaster two years after my experience with secondary infertility and am amazed at both the depth and quality of information that Iris Waicher shares with her audience. With over 30 years of clinical experience plus her personal experience of trying to conceive at age 45, she speaks to the top concerns that couples are facing and shares others' stories and solutions. Chapter 12 of the book focuses on Building a Support Network, which is one of the biggest challenges we face when we have a fertility challenge since the topic is so sensitive and personal. Family and friends may or may not offer the kind of help we need. Support, encouragement and information are the keys to maintaining courage and achieving success. Iris' expert voice and those of other experienced and compassionate professionals are vital to couples striving to bring a child into their families. I hope that others will find Iris' book to be a valuable tool in their journey. For additional resources and stories of first-time mothers of age 35 or better, see [...] Riding the Infertility Roller Coaster: A Guide to Educate And Inspire

Format: Paperback
Here is a resource that should be on every bookshelf of those who work within the infertility field as well as those Intended Parents who are just starting out their own struggle with infertility. Iris Waichler and her book Riding the Infertility Roller Coaster offers Intended Parents invaluable information and support covering topics that most books leave out. From Balancing Work and Infertility Treatment to Making the Choice to Live Childfree Ms. Waichler manages to share stories and helpful insights to assist Intended Parents in makeing decisions that will affect them for a lifetime.

There are so many great topics that Iris Waichler as managed to cover in her 263 page book that I don't know where to begin! Riding the Infertility Roller Coaster covers concerns like Building a Support Network (chapter 12), Parenting After Infertility (chapter 14) to Becoming a Couple Again (Chapter 19). All very important while struggling to come to terms with infertility and all it entails. I especially like the Glossary of Terms Relating to Infertility.

I will certainly recommend to my clients Riding the Infertility Roller Coaster by Iris Waichler!

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.
