The Stork Club : When Imogen Edwards-Jones was a teenager, she believed that getting pregnant was easy, the inevitable consequence of sex, and that it could ruin her life. Twenty years later, pregnancy could still ruin her life. Although now it was not the threat of what having a baby would do, but of not having a baby at all. Based on her hugely successful Daily Telegraph column, The Stork Club is Imogen's very personal, very moving and very funny memoir of her (and her husband's) attempts to conceive. Poked and prodded by endless doctors, pumped full of an exotic cocktail of drugs and forced to try to have sex at the most inopportune moments, Imogen pulls no punches in her account of this grueling process. On a voyage through despair and elation, she undergoes artificial insemination and IVF, takes endless fertility pills and injects herself with drugs more than a thousand times. Funny and heartbreaking, this is a detailed, poignant account of one woman's journey to motherhood - proof positive that there's light at the end of the darkest of tunnels.
