LDS Author Offers Honesty and Hope To Couples Dealing With Infertility

Springville, UT—Doctors and therapists alike have endorsed the new book, “Infertility: Help, Hope, and Healing” (Cedar Fort, $13.99) by Kerstin Daynes. While capturing the essence of struggle and identifying the emotions of infertility, Daynes provides tangible strategies that can help couples cope and live beyond the sorrow they feel.

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine reports that 1 in 7 couples has difficulty conceiving. As it affects so many couples and their loved ones, “Infertility: Help, Hope, and Healing” is an ideal handbook for those who desire to make sense of infertility and for those who would like to be sympathetic to friends or family unable to conceive. Humor, plainness, and compassion are woven together as Daynes creates a resource of hope focusing on:

  • Practical strategies for coping with infertility.
  • Validation of sorrow and disappointment.
  • Ways to find meaning in life beyond infertility.
  • A consideration of the differences in male and female responses to infertility.
  • How to offer support to couples dealing with infertility.
