Product description

Review

"Oh my goodness! This book tells it like it really is. The author manages to explain exactly what it is like to go through 336 hours of unimaginable doubt/euphoria/stress/panic/symptom-watching hell!
I found myself nodding vigorously as I remembered doing exactly what she did - the constant thought of test day, the truth you daren't discuss (even with your other half), ricocheting from being positive that this is the cycle that's going to make us parents, to being convinced that the embryos have stopped developing as soon as they were transferred into 'Mummy-to-be'.
What Rachel also tackles with panache is how the whole infertility journey takes over your work life, your private life, how your relationships change with your partner, friends and family and how you feel like you are letting everyone down because you can't do this one natural thing....
Anyone who is going to go through IVF really, really should read this book before starting their two-week wait. It will prepare you for how you will likely feel, how your other half will likely act and, above all, it will support you whilst you feel and do almost everything that is described in the book - and then you will know how absolutely normal you are."
Sheila Lamb, My Fertility Specialist Magazine

"As a reader, 336 Hours was a tumultuous experience. At different times I found myself laughing, crying, shouting and holding my breath. With each page I cheered her and her husband on even more. I devoured this book in one sitting, reading late into the night so I could find out what happened next. I'd highly recommend it to friends and family of anyone who's experiencing fertility treatment as it will give a true insight into what their loved ones may be experiencing. Rachel tells it exactly like it is. I suspect this powerful book will also be a huge comfort to anyone in the throes of fertility treatment. It will reassure them that they are not alone, that the strength of their emotions is completely understandable and that googling every sign and symptom is totally normal. In 336 Hours Rachel's no-holds-barred narrative gives a voice to all the women and men who've ever experienced fertility treatment."
Natasha Canfer, IRIS Fertility

"At times it is laugh-out-loud funny, and at others, devastatingly sad, but so very honest... (It) was an eye-opener. I was laughing, crying, and screaming at the injustice of it all alongside Rachel. I would recommend this book to those who know someone going through IVF or are simply having trouble conceiving, and of course to those on their own IVF journey. The author's message is clear: Just because some people don't understand doesn't mean that you are alone."

About the Author

Rachel Cathan is a writer from Bedfordshire. In 2001, a mutual friend introduced her to a part-time pub DJ in Southend-on-Sea. A month later, they had moved in together, around seven years later they tied the knot, and a little while after that - just like so many couples before them - they made the exciting and terrifying decision to start a family. And then, like a growing number of couples today, well...not a lot happened. Throughout the subsequent years of fertility investigations and failed treatments, Rachel kept a diary of her experiences, and it's from these first-hand encounters in the world of infertility and IVF that her first book, '336 Hours' has been adapted.
