Personal, easy to read, and possessed of a warm, welcome sense of humor… An excellent introduction for anyone facing infertility(Publishers Weekly) Cindy Margolis may be known as the most downloaded woman on the Internet,” but she was brought down to earth when she tried to conceive. Suddenly, she became another statistic: just one of the more than nine million women each year who are desperately trying to have a child. After more than a year of disappointment and with a growing sense of insecurity, Cindy began a determined quest to have a family that included an array of treatments—including five in-vitro fertilizations and surrogacy—a journey that resulted in three happy and healthy children. Now Cindy helps women navigate through the world of infertility treatments and procedures. Sincere, supportive, and funny, she provides the direction, advice, and information that could only come from a woman who’s been in the trenches— and who has emerged battle-scarred, but victorious.
