Life lessons from pregnancy at 41By Julia MacLellan: As many of you may already know, I’m a first-time mama-to-be, with my wee one expected to arrive somewhere around July 23.

I admit, I get a kick out of the fact that I’m well into the group the obstetricians like to label as “advanced maternal age” – for me, it’s been an absolute treasure and a joy to be enjoying a first pregnancy at 41.

Test tubes and testosterone (Male In-fertility)Test tubes and testosterone (Male In-fertility)
-- What do you need to make a baby? A willing partner? A good sense of timing? Some wine maybe? A nice meal and some amorous music? Not always. 

There are times when all the romance (and luck) just simply will not do. 

In those times, what you need is a specimen pot, a heap of drugs, so many ultra-sound scans that your wife or partner begins to glow in the dark and an unfeasibly large amount of tea.

Providing a rare yet enlightening male perspective on the world of IVF, 'Test tubes and testosterone' is one man's experience of in-fertility and the IVF journey he embarked on with his wife in order to start a family. 

Told with humour, wit and insight, this book sheds light on issues that can be hard to discuss even with the closest of friends or relatives, making it a valuable book for anyone contemplating or going through IVF.

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 our 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 there will be no more babies in our house.
