Heather, and her husband, Mark, want to share their personal story of infertility, and offer guidance and support for others who face failure during IVF, or find themselves sitting at the infertility crossroads. It can feel at times a very sad and isolated place to be. During their personal journey, they have faced all three roads: IVF, adoption and childlessness.
Heather and Mark find themselves facing some hard decisions after discovering that they have fertility issues. They quickly find themselves turning to the NHS for support as they begin their quest to have a baby. However, they soon realise that NHS support is limited. They begin tests with the NHS and are shocked at the results which lead to years of struggles with infertility with lots of twists and turns along the way. Heather and Mark together faced 5 rounds of IVF, use of donor eggs, IVF treatment abroad, issues with sperm quality, endometriosis, adenomyosis, premature ovarian insufficiency and laparoscopy surgery.
The book ends by giving others advice on deciding how and when to move on in their journey when couples find themselves at the infertility crossroads. Heather shares her own current thoughts on being childless and her hopes for the future, and remaining positive, and gives guidance to others on how to navigate their own feelings.
