Each month I share some of the newly-published and soon-to-be-released books about infertility, family building, and related emotional, spiritual, or physical issues. I haven’t read any of them yet, so I’m not necessarily recommending them, but just letting you know what’s newly available. Please note that these links are affiliate links.
Feed Your Fertility: Your Guide to Cultivating a Healthy Pregnancy with Chinese Medicine, Real Food, and Holistic Living by Emily Bartlett and Laura Erlich. This is a best-selling new release in Amazon’s Fertility section. I’m always interested in learning about eating healthier and using Chinese medicine to improve fertility.
For Those with Empty Arms: A Compassionate Voice For Those Experiencing Infertility by Emily Harris Adams. According to Amazon’s description, this is a book of poetry and personal stories offering empathy to those experiencing infertility.
Infertility Insanity: When Sheer Hope (and Google) are the Only Options Left by Julie Selby. Amazon describes it as Selby’s story of surviving infertility, from the traditional to the bizarre.
Savor: Living Abundantly Where You Are, As You Are by Shauna Niequist. Okay, so this isn’t a book on infertility, but the title really speaks to me. Infertility has a tendency to make us always look toward tomorrow and the future, so sometimes I need help being content in the present moment. I’ve read Niequist’s other books and loved them, and I’m willing to bet this one is a winner, too.
I Tried Until I Almost Died: From Anxiety and Frustration to Rest and Relaxation by Sandra McCollum. Here’s another one where the title wins me over. Anyone who’s been through infertility knows that it feels like when all the “trying” has left them nearly dead.
Healing for Damaged Emotions by David A. Seamands. This is a new edition of the classic work. I think it might be useful for those of us dealing with the emotional aspects of infertility. There’s also a workbook edition available.
