Battle with the Baby Gods

If you, or someone close to you, have been trying without success to have children and feel isolated or unable to share the experience—overwhelming feelings of loss, inadequacy, resentment or just plain frustration—Battles with the Baby Gods will show you that you are not alone. Amanda Hampson probably knows better than anyone how difficult it is for infertile couples to share their hopes and fears. In her case there was an added twist. Forced to give up a baby for adoption at 17, she later had problems conceiving again.
As a veteran of the IVF program who eventually conceived naturally, Hampson offers a uniquely personal insight into infertility by telling her story and those of other who have battled the ‘baby gods’ in all their guises—and won.
