Though the first IVF baby is now over 40 years old, there are still many myths and misconceptions which surround infertility and its medical treatment. This is partly because of the social stigma that infertility carries, as a result of which it is still shrouded in secrecy and old wives’ tales!

The best way to bust myths is to educate people through storytelling, because stories are sticky!
Dr Anjali Malpani is a pioneer in the field of fertility treatment in India and successfully captures the emotional, physical, and social dimensions of these complex stories in the book. Through her empathetic and resonant writing, she provides an honest look at the traumas and triumphs involved in the journey of infertility. The book also brings up issues about the patriarchial society and its judgment of infertility, especially when it comes to women.
