Planning to become a parent is a profound experience, at times agonizing, hopeful, stressful, and joyous. Not everyone is able to become pregnant, however. When the journey to parenthood proves challenging, Planning Parenthood will guide prospective parents through the complicated mazes of assisted reproduction and adoption.

Specialist authors first describe fertility assistance, surrogacy, and adoption, clearly outlining the requirements of each strategy. They compare the medical, emotional, financial, and legal investments and risks involved with each of these options. Then they introduce the issues that people will need to consider when deciding which path to parenthood is best for them. Along the way these experts offer encouragement for changing course under any number of circumstances.

Supporting the detailed information in this book are personal stories of the often long, winding, and emotional road to parenthood―from in vitro fertilization to egg donation to surrogacy to adoption.

Armed with professional knowledge and inspired by the experiences of others who have gone before them, prospective parents will be informed and reassured by this unique resource.

As a women struggling with the decisions and pathways facing my husband and I going through infertility treatment, I appreciate the completeness of "Planning Parenthood: Strategies for Success in Fertility Assistance, Adoption and Surrogacy". It covers every possible option one might face in treatment options, though I hope we don't need them. It's written in a way that's easy to understand. The stories with each chapter helps because it reminds me other couples have the same struggle. It's often hard to talk to other people and ask questions. This book helps to answer some of the questions about what other people experience. The book also provides resources to further explore areas of uncertainty. It provides a platform to read through and prepare questions for us to discuss with my doctor. It really was a great tool to have to get through this very confusing maze of options.
