As a matter of legality, please know that this book is not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any part of infertility or any other disease that you may be experiencing. This book is in no way meant to substitute consulting with your physician.
Please also know that you will not find any special diets and get-pregnant-quick tricks because these things simply don’t exist, and there won’t be any pointing fingers or commands on what to do or not to do because, as part of an infertility community, those things are not in our genetic makeup.
What will you find? You will find useful information regarding infertility, whether a new or seasoned traveler, that will help you navigate your own journey. There are plenty of statistics, tips, real-life examples, and more that not only validate the things you’re going through, but that can be used for inspiration while you cope.
I, Frances Hoelsema, as well as the many other women that contributed to this content, want nothing more than for you to find comfort in knowing you’re not crazy, you’re not alone, and there is always hope.
Also, as a side note, please know that this book will contain some religious references, including multiple Bible verses. If this is not your type of thing, please feel free to bypass those sections, or perhaps pass on this book all together. I, in no way, want to offend anyone so please proceed in the way that best suits your comfortability.
Frances and her husband went through almost four years of infertility. Through this dark and oftentimes lonely journey, there were still glimpses of hope. Having made her way to the other side, she has a heart for those still in the midst of the pain and struggle of trying to conceive. She wants nothing more than to provide comfort, hope, validation, and a sense of belonging to those going through what she once did. Thus the book was created. Not only does she provide basic information on infertility, but she also provides ways to cope, where to find inspiration, real-life examples and statistics, as well as tips and other useful tools to help others on their journey.
