I’ve just spent the past hour reading Holly Finn’s The Baby Chase and in that hour, my emotions have run the gamut.
And identified with so very much of what Finn has to say about infertility and the dangers in taking our fertility for granted.
Though Finn’s story is unique, in many ways, it’s also incredibly familiar.
Infertility is devastating and though the paths that we take to get pregnant may differ, the pain is so incredibly similar.
Finn tells her story in a way that resonates with anyone who has ever wanted a child of his or her own.
In The Baby Chase, Finn deftly weaves her personal stories of her IVF journey with relevant medical insight, historical context, cultural trends, and infertility statistics.
The Baby Chase, a Byliner Original from the new digital publisher Byliner, chronicles Finn’s IVF journey as she brings out into the open the infertility struggles that too many couples suffer in silence.
Finn writes, “Usually, it’s only the people who come out on the other side, beaming, with a baby on one hip, who speak up about IVF,” she writes. “We never hear from those IVF has failed – it’s too crushing to talk about. We don’t hear from men and women in the middle of treatment, either…People like me.”
And we want you to have a chance to read The Baby Chase.
