A personal record of an infertility journey, July 19, 2001
Reviewer: Linda D.Tillman (see more about me) from www.fertilitycoach.com
Girlfriend to Girlfriend is a very personal story shared by Kristen Magnacca as
she goes along her own infertility journey. Kristen's tale is quite descriptive
and provides a view into one person's detailed experience of the world of
If you are without support, this book lets you know what the process was like
for Kristen and may help you feel connected with someone who experienced a
similar struggle. I will recommend the book to coaching clients who are alone
and need a sense that others also have rough infertility experiences.
The book is somewhat similar to A Little Pregnant by Linda Carbone and Ed
Decker. Because I felt so completely a part of the experience through Carbone's
book, I missed the perspective of Kristen's husband in this one.
At the end of each chapter, Kristen has a suggestion or two. While these are
useful, there aren't many of them.
For me, the best part of the book is the personal sharing.

Very Helpful Book
This book is a very moving first-person account of one woman's journey into the
world of infertility treatments. I really felt like I was 'there' with the
author and her story made me feel less alone. It's inspiring that she wrote the
book to help other 'girlfriends' learn from what she has learned. I recommend
this book for anyone dealing with fertility issues or for anyone who wants to
better understand what dealing with fertility issues feels like.
