Whereas 20 years ago infertile couples had no choice but to accept the situation, today they are more than likely to seek treatment at an infertility clinic. Stephenson provides a brief overview of what infertility is, what causes it, how to choose a specialist to treat it, and what to expect from treatment. Innovations in treatment are outlined, as are options such as in vitro fertilization, artificial insemination, surrogate parenting, and adoption. The main focus is the author's personal odyssey: She describes how she has coped with the social, emotional, and medical crises associated with infertility and the ethical and spiritual issues these crises have engendered.
