The Insiders Guide to Egg Donation by Wendie Wilson-Miller and Erika Napoletano: A LaMothe Book Review
Posted Jul 09 2012 11:30am
Finally! A book that explains Egg Donation in away that doesn’t make people run from sheer information overload! The Insiders Guide to Egg Donation by Wendie Wilson-Miller and Erika Napoletano is clear and concise. I loved the fact that in each chapter there are helpful hints, checklists, and highlighted segments that allow the reader to revisit the most relevant parts to each section.
With chapters entitled ‘Beyond the Nest- when Hearts and Science Collide, Circling the Nest-The Ovum Donation Cycle, and Readying the Nest-Transfer and Beyond Wendie and Erika are able to guide Intended Parents and Recipient Couples through the egg donation process in a way that covers every concern and issue.
The letters, real life stories and comments told throughout these pages are what really make this book one to read. I found myself feeling a connection with the donors who give the most precious part of themselves (and being a past Gestational Surrogate, I can relate!). The information is accurate and yet simple to understand so even if this is the first book on egg donation that you have ever read you will understand the process thoroughly.
Another wonderful addition to The Insiders Guide to Egg Donation is the Appendixes A-H and a wonderful Glossary make this book THE ONE to keep on hand while going through the egg donation process.
I highly recommend The Insiders Guide To Egg Donation and happily congratulate both Wendie Wilson-Miller and Erika Napolitano for a book that will support and guide many parents-to-be for years to come!
