When people think of birth and motherhood, the process seems pretty straight forward; However, for Colette Centeno Fox, her journey to motherhood was not as straight forward as everyone thought it would be...
IVF Got This is a heartfelt memoir charting Colette and her husband Michael’s fertility journey. Experiencing infertility is a painful challenge, and yet the impacts are rarely discussed in the open.
Like many suffering with similar anxieties, Colette was afraid of missing out on her dream of becoming a mum. She details her emotional journey, through suffering traumatic baby losses, monthly setbacks and frustrating waiting times whilst coping with the ongoing confusion of how to relate this to the people around her.
The book is a refreshingly honest and intimate account of the IVF process, one, which offers practical insight into the often arduous but remarkable journey which fertility treatment can offer.

I’ve always thought that going through IVF was tough, but having no personal experience of the process, I didn’t really spend much time thinking about the physical and mental impact. Colette’s book is an heartfelt, honest and straight forward account. A journey that you go on with her. It will be an essential read to anyone considering, or already going through, IVF.
