Fiona McPhillips’ book “TTC: Trying to Conceive – The Irish Couple’s Guide” is going to be launched today at 1830 upstairs in the Dublin Bookshop on Grafton Street. Fiona is the award winning blogger who blogs from the heart about fertility issues at The Waiting Game and now with a new website she also has a discussion forum for those that read the blog and visit her site. The whole site, like the book is a fantastic resource.
I only got my review copy yesterday but even though I don’t think a gay man would fit the target audience, I’m actually finding it fascinating. I’ve learned stuff already. Maybe I’m like the father in The Snapper who gets hooked on the pregnancy books? As well as clear explanations for the biology and biochemistry that goes on, the book from my take is the supreme resource for fertility information and it is also dotted with stories from men and women about the issues they had when they tried to conceive. Fiona has created a wonderful guide and in it has given a voice to so many others too.
Best of luck at the book launch this evening Fiona!
