More Love To Give is my memoir of our journey through four rounds of IVF treatment in a quest to fulfil a desperate desire to have and love a second child.
Trying for a second baby posed different challenges to trying for a first with the confusing emotions of frustration, shame and feeling greedy when we knew we were lucky to have one child.
I knew I was lucky to have Zac but my joy at having him only sought to make my desire for another child even stronger. I felt guilty for wanting another and angry when friends said “but at least you have Zac”
Secondary Infertility is hugely common, yet rarely understood or spoken about. You feel isolated and distant from the fertile, baby world that you long to be part of and yet you are cast aside from the Infertility community, who see you as already being lucky.
Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, this is my frank and honest account exploring the physical, mental and emotional challenges we faced going through IVF when we were fortunate to have a child but felt we still had more love to give.
