The Child Within

In this book the author talks to women who tell of the struggle and sadness of facing infertility or loss through miscarriage and the accompanying merry-go-round of tests, treatment and trauma. While struggling to keep up a brave front, these women plunge to the depths of despair, hating their bodies, and often their partners, and longing for the
one thing they believe will make them whole – a baby. Dr Fiske charts the various journeys that women take when facing this overwhelming grief. In the end, however, her book offers hope, allowing women to speak frankly of their feelings, to own their pain and, through this process, to open themselves to the possibilities of a new life after infertility.
