An in-depth exploration of social-emotional issues in ART. While providing
basic medical information about high tech treatment, this book carefully details
the social, psychological, and ethical considerations involved in assisted
reproduction. It offers support and advice to couples regarding when to end
treatment and consider alternatives to bio-genetic parenting, and provides a
detailed discussion of all the third party options. The book also discusses how
and when to talk to children, born as a result of third party collaboration,
about their origins.

This book covers everything you need to know about ART Susan Cooper and I
tried to cover the social and ethical aspects of assisted reproductive
technology as well as the emotional challenges. We take a careful look at what
the ARTs mean to families and especially, to the offspring. --This text refers

Don't start infertility treatment until you read this!, September 11,
Reviewer: A reader from Tinley Park, IL United States
I can't believe that anyone let me start the process of infertility treatment
(beyond the clomid stage) without telling me to read this. I found it on my own
when having to decide whether my only chance to have a child, egg donation, was
right for my husband and myself. I only WISH someone had told me about it
sooner. It would have helped me think about all of "this" in a not so
crazy way. It's technical, but, those of us who go through infertility
procedures know more about the getting pregnant process than most books and
online souces give us credit for. These authors treat us like intelligent human
beings. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
This is a wise book !, June 3, 2000
Reviewer: Dr Aniruddha Malpani (see more about me) from Bombay,
As an infertility specialist, I'd heartily recommend this book to all infertile
couples - and their doctors as well. The forte of this book is the superb way in
which emotional issues have been discussed.

Reviewer: A reader from Boston, Mass.
My husband and I have been struggling with infertility for six years and have
read several books on the subject. Choosing Assisted Reproduction is the most
comprehensive, informative and challenging book that we have come across. We
were both relieved to see that the authors raise some of the ethical questions
that we are struggling with. They do so in a very sensitive way, always
respecting the difficult choices that infertility patients face in this new
world of baby making. I recommend this book to anyone going through infertility,
as well as to their families and friends. --This text refers to the Hardcover
I could have lost my mind several times without this book, July 25,
Reviewer: A reader from London
This compassionately written book has provided a constant reference and
framework within which to think during the hugely emotional period of
infertility. It has managed to normalise to some extent the weird world in which
readers of this book dwell. It has contributed largely to my change of views on
the right of the child to know its biological history. I would recommend it as
essential reading for anyone going into third party parenting.
