I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.
Author Jade Barrett takes readers on a personal journey into the process and life of IVF in an effort to start her family in the book “The Good News Is, You Don’t Have Endometriosis: How I Survived IVF With My Sanity (Mostly) Intact”.
Jade Barrett thought she was living her best life in her 30s, a stable career, an amazing husband, a great group of friends, a supportive family, and a beautiful home…that is until she tried to start a family.
After yet another negative pregnancy test, her husband said, “It’s time to talk to a doctor.” Surely she didn’t have infertility…right? Finding out that the only way she could conceive a child biologically was through IVF sent shockwaves through her marriage and her life.
Thisis the story of triumph over adversity and how you can advocate from the best possible care from your fertility clinic.
“There are lots of things one can prepare for in life – an important exam, maybe a big job interview – but no one is prepared to be diagnosed with infertility.”
– Jade Barrett
“No one discusses the idea that maybe some people have a fancy built-in biological protection against pregnancy that will become a major crisis in the lives of 1 in 8 couples when they wish to start a family.”
– Jade Barrett
“The Good News Is, You Don’t Have Endometriosis”is a hilariously intense story of Jade Barrett’s IVF quest to parenthood and how you can advocate for the best possible care from infertility clinics.
This was such a heartfelt and passionate read. The author did an incredible job of really relating her personal experiences going through fertility tests and going to a plethora of doctors’ appointments to discover where the issues lay in the process. The fast pace of the read and the intense atmosphere of the author’s story told kept readers engaged on a personal level as the book progressed.
The heart of this narrative lay in the wonderful balance of humor and wit that the author wrote with, as well as the perspective the author brought to the subject. The narrative honed in on the author’s point of view, not as a medical professional at all but as an everyday person and patient who had to endure and learn about this tough subject on the go. The strength and resiliency she shows in the pages of this book and the captivating way she showcases how to be her own advocate in the journey to find medical care that is both done right and done with professionalism kept me thoroughly engaged.
Mesmerizing, educational, and charming yet inspiring all at once, author Jade Barrett”s “The Good News Is, You Don’t Have Endometriosis: How I Survived IVF With My Sanity (Mostly) Intact” is a must-read nonfiction medical memoir on the struggle and journey to understand IVF.
