Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, July 24, 2012 | 0 comments

Insider's Guide to Egg Donation, is the first how-to-guide helping families of all types navigate the less talked about but widely practiced landscape of reproductive medicine, infertility, egg donor landscape with a warm and friendly tone.

Each year, over 7.3 million Americans face reproductive issues and infertility. Many turn to the nearly 500 reproductive specialty clinics across the United States. Insider’s Guide to Egg Donation is the first book to give a comprehensive overview of the egg donation process for all types of families, from an insider’s perspective.

Authors Wilson-Miller and Napoletano, egg donors themselves who work in the industry, discuss the ins and outs of what happens when you want to begin a family through egg donation. Chapters cover emotional, legal, and medical aspects of the process, how to choose a facility and donor, as well as advice for gay, lesbian, transgendered, single, and international recipients.

“When I went through this process as an intended parent back in 2000 there was no guide, no book, no support groups…If I were doing this all over again this would be a book I’d buy and read from cover to cover.”—Marna Gatlin, Founder, Parents Via Egg Donation

-- In their search for alternative means for building a family, those who face infertility turn to the nearly 500 reproductive specialty clinics across the United States.

While egg donors enter into the picture for a variety of reasons, every reason has the same desired result: a family to call one’s own.

Same-sex and single-by-choice parents are more prevalent than ever in the fertility industry, and there is no definitive, up-to-date guide to help families of all types approach egg donation, especially these niche groups. Resources are fragmented, true regardless of the family structure.

The Insider's Guide to Egg Donation is the first how-to-handbook that helps families of all types navigate the less talked about but widely practiced egg donor landscape with a warm and friendly tone, giving those in search of a different kind of stork the answers and information they need as they begin to research family-building options.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
