Sheila Alexander’s new graphic memoir, “IF: A Memoir of Infertility” (published by Archway Publishing), shares the story of her journey of infertility, offering insight and encouragement to others who are traveling the same path. The book is available for purchase at: https://www.amazon.com/IF-Memoir-Infertility-Sheila-Alexander/dp/1480875384.
To Alexander’s surprise, she couldn’t get pregnant after a year of trying, so she was approved to start in vitro fertilization. Written like a journal documenting each step of the process as it’s happening, the author discusses infertility and how the diagnosis and treatment physically and emotionally impacts individuals. With a humorous outlook, she describes the emotional roller coaster of feelings, the physical issues endured and the joy she felt at finally becoming pregnant.
“I want readers who are experiencing, or have experienced, infertility to know they’re not alone,” Alexander says. “I want other readers to gain an understanding of what it’s like for individuals to undergo IVF so they may be better able to support their loved ones going through it.”
