Experts are predicting that, within ten years, one in four couples will face fertility challenges. The Baby Wait is written in a frank, open manner from the perspective of a woman who has had fertility challenges for many years. Lyn Sharkey has struggled with fertility issues for the past eight years. She believes that every woman needs to educate herself about her own fertility and has written The Baby Wait to be the guide she wishes she had when she began her conception journey. She advises women, from her own personal experience, what they can do to ready their bodies for conception, how to increase their chances of conceiving and what steps to take if they encounter fertility challenges. The book covers diverse topics such as diet and healthy living, as well as providing an explanation of key medical terms and phrases. It also deals with the emotional impact of trying to conceive and how to help a friend who has fertility challenges.
