Reviews

'If you are considering the use of donor eggs to build your family, this is a must read. Experienced reproductive healthcare professionals Ellen Glazer and Evelina Sterling answer your questions about both the practical and emotional considerations in pursuing this form of assisted reproductive technology, and will guide you to explore other questions you may not have yet considered. Illuminating vignettes both inform prospective parents and reduce feelings of isolation in this pursuit and new information regarding worldwide egg donation expands prospective parents' potential options. Upon completing Having Your Baby Through Egg Donation, you will be in a far better position to decide if this family building option is right for you and, if so, to proceed as an empowered parent to your child.'
- Dr. Joann Paley Galst, PhD, Chairperson of the American Fertility Association Mental Health Advisory Council, USA

'Having Your Baby Through Egg Donation should be the bedside companion of women and men choosing to build or expand their families through egg donation. Glazer and Sterling explore the broad spectrum of issues to be considered before embarking upon egg donation. I am glad that they approach the topic from the perspective of the best interests of children, while being respectful and sensitive to the feelings of those who long to be parents.'
- Wendy Kramer, Co-Founder and Director of the Donor Sibling Registry

'I am delighted to endorse this new edition of Having Your Baby by Egg Donation, a book that DC Network always highly recommends to anyone contemplating building a family this way. There is now more material that is relevant for UK families but what is more important is that Ellen Glazer and Evelina Sterling's wise words and sensitive approach to all the social, emotional and practical issues remain intact. They do not shy away from the difficult questions and feelings but by the very acknowledgement of them allows the reader to face and work through the loss and grief of infertility towards making decisions that are right for her and her family.'
- Olivia Montuschi, Founder of the Donor Conception Network, UK

'A practical and sensible guide to the choices available to hopeful parents considering egg donation.'
- Sanford M. Benardo, Esq., Past-president of American College of Assisted Reproduction and Adoption Lawyers, Co-founder of Northeast Assisted Fertility Group
