For people experiencing infertility, wanting a baby is a craving unlike any other. The intensity of their longing is matched only by the complexity of the emotional maze they must navigate.
With insight and compassion, Drs. Janet Jaffe, Martha Diamond, and David Diamond-specialists in the field of Reproductive Psychology who have each experienced their own struggle with infertility-give couples the tools to:
*Reduce their sense of helplessness and isolation
*Identify their mates' coping styles to erase unfair expectations
*Listen to their "unsung lullabies"--their conscious and unconscious dreams about having a family--to mourn the losses of infertility and move on.
Ground-breaking, wise, and compassionate, Unsung Lullabies is a necessary companion for anyone coping with infertility.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I read this to try to understand what my daughter and her husband are going through. She recommended it to me for that reason. It helped me, and it is helping her, validating her feelings and experiences and providing a connection to others who suffer the same losses...and that connection is invaluable. Also, since the authors themselves suffered these same losses, it is a special book.
