IN PURSUIT OF FERTILITY: A Consultation with a Specialist

Email this review


According to the foreword by Veasy Buttram, M.D., President of the American Fertility Society, one in six American couples of childbearing age is infertile, and the problem is growing. For them, fertility specialist Franklin (Baylor College of Medicine, Houston), aided by free-lance writer Brockman and other specialists who contribute chapters or advice, provides an excellent guide to causes and treatment of infertility, along with guidance on tracking ovulation, alternate paths to parenthood (adoption; surrogate mothers), and handling the emotions of infertility. Studded with sobering statistics on the growing incidence of various serious problems, with the stories of infertile couples encountered and helped in Franklin's practice, and with information on the latest drugs and techniques, the book is an informative, sympathetic, and skillful blend of high tech and human elements.
