Review by Kate Brian, author of The Complete Guide to IVF
‘After reading dozens of fertility books over the years, I’ve realised how hard it is to get a

'Jessica's writing is easy and flowing and the book is a real page-turner; it's a journey you're compelled
to join - her strengths and weaknesses, her guilty pleasures, and most of all her rollercoaster of
emotions laid bare. It's a great read and for anyone for whom fertility is an issue.'

Review by Pamela Tsigdinos, award-winning writer of the infertility memoir Silent Soroity
'Jessica Hepburn is a gifted story teller. She's written an intelligent, thoughtful memoir that takes
readers inside the maddening diagnosis of unexplained infertility. The Pursuit of Motherhood not
only adds a refreshing new voice to the repro lit category, it also raises some important questions about
the shocking lack of attention paid to the emotional side of infertility.'

Review by Dee Armstrong, fertility coach at the Natural Fertility Centre
'Jessica Hepburn has written a really important book...Not for the fainthearted, it's brutally honest at
times and the effects on her physical and mental health, her relationship and bank balance are laid bare...
I found myself staying awake until the wee small to finish it in just over 24 hours. It will be fascinating
for everyone who has struggled with infertility themselves and indeed should be compulsory reading
for all fertility clinicians. I thoroughly recommend it.'
