My wife and I have struggled with infertility for over five years. It's been hard for both of us to hear that donor egg is recommended. This book provided us with a great introduction to the subject. The authors are clear, comprehensive, compassionate, and balanced in their approach to egg donation and other options, such as adoption. We both came away from reading the book feeling much more informed and more prepared to move forward with this and most importantly, we are finally finally optimistic.

I highly recommend Having your Baby through Egg Donation to anyone who is going through the pain of infertility. The book is incredibly helpful and informative. I am planning on passing it on to my friends who are suffering from infertility with the hopes that this compassionate book will offer them guidance and inspire them to continue their journey to have a child.
