We’re delighted to say that the new paperback edition of our book is out now. All the same content as the first edition and a fiver cheaper.

You can find it in all good bookshops (as they say in adverts) and online, including Amazon (obviously) where there’s also a Kindle edition.

Again, a huge thank you to everyone for all the kind reviews on Amazon. It really means a great deal to hear that it’s helped people as that’s the only reason we ever wrote it – to try and just make the whole experience easier and successful.

And, as we’ve said before, if we can help any further – if you want any words of advice etc – please feel free to get in touch via the Contact us page on the site and we promise to get back to you.

We’ve had loads of emails from people saying that they can’t get a copy of our book on Amazon at the moment.

This is apparently because a new edition is coming out soon and Amazon are taking pre-orders for that instead.

The new, cheaper paperback edition is due out on 23 March 2017 and you can pre-order a copy here,

If you can’t wait until then, the existing edition is still in stock at a few places including Waterstones and of course the Kindle edition is still available as usual on Amazon.

Meanwhile, thank you again to all of you who’ve bought it so far and for all the kind messages of how it has helped you get through the whole IVF process – it really means a lot to us.

A huge thank you to everyone who has bought our book so far.

We really hope it’s proved helpful and provided some useful support and advice. And, most of all, of Fertility show piccourse, we hope you have been successful.

Thank you also to all those people who have posted reviews of the book on Amazon. It’s really flattering. As we’ve said before, we were just two people struggling to have a baby who decided to write a book to explain what IVF is really like and to try and help people to avoid the mistakes we made and hopefully make the process a bit easier. It’s genuinely touching to read reviews from people who’ve found it helpful.

And a final thank you to all the people we met at the Fertility Show at Olympia in November (this photo on the right is our grand show stand and our step ladder book-display-system – really no expense spared…). It was great to meet people who’d read the book and to hear the experiences of people at different stages of the fertility process.

If you have any further questions about the book or if we can offer any more advice, please do get in touch via the Contact Us page – we promise to reply.

Fertility Show bannerWe will be at Olympia, London on 7-8 Nov 2015 with a stand exhibiting our book at The Fertility Show.

We’ll be there all weekend so if you want to know more about our book or have any questions about IVF and want to know what it’s really like and how to get through it, please come and have a chat (Stand 87, we think).
