  • THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER, now with an extra chapter.

    'All I ever wanted was to be a mum - I couldn't wait and it felt as though my time was so close. But the months started to tick by, with each one ending in disappointment and frustration. And then the inevitable panic started to set in ...'

    Having been told by doctors that, due to Izzy's polycystic ovarian syndrome, they would have difficulty conceiving - and after two years of trying - Izzy and her husband, Harry, turned to IVF.

    Izzy's aim is to break through some of the taboos surrounding miscarriage, IVF and fertility issues. This brutally honest and deeply personal account acknowledges the struggles that many couples go through but will ultimately focus on the positive, life-changing results that IVF can yield.

    Izzy hopes that this book will be a companion to those going through similar challenges to those she has experienced. As she herself says, 'No couple should have to go through it alone and in silence.'
