Whenever possible, I want to add holistic practices into my treatment for infertility. I have tried acupuncture and massage, but I want to play a more active role in my daily health and well being. This book had some great tips for how to stay hopeful even when I feel like giving up. There are several mind and body techniques described in the book, and I know it's up to me to change my attitudes and beliefs.. I would have liked to read more about how to stay in the present and not worry so much about whether I will get pregnant next month or next year. I welcome all suggestions for how to stop worrying, and wish there was an entire book devoted to that.

A must-read for couples experiencing infertility
Going through infertility treatment can take a toll on a couple's relationship and intimacy. This book provides some real-life, practical advice on how to face the daily drain of battling infertility. Not only does the author/counselor provide good suggestions for couples going through the emotional roller coaster of infertility, her compassionate tone shows that she has experienced that journey herself, and her advice rings true. One chapter I found especially insightful is the one on how to deal with friends' and relatives' well-meaning but sometimes hurtful comments.
