Stork Club by Imogen Edwards-Jones

Book Description

'When I was a teenager, I thought you could get pregnant from sitting in a jacuzzi. Not that I'm sure I even knew what a jacuzzi was, but I knew they were racy places where racy things happened. Men, as far as I remember, didn't even have to be there. So long as they'd been in the water in some sort of excitable state, pregnancy was inevitable - even if you kept your pants on. You see pregnancy was that easy, that dangerous and it could ruin your life. Almost 20 years later and pregnancy could still ruin my life. Although now it is not the threat of what having a baby would do, but of not having a baby at all. I have been trying to get pregnant for two years and have not even come close to hearing the pitter-patter of tiny feet...' So begins "The Stork Club", Imogen Edwards-Jones' very personal, very moving and very funny memoir of her (and her husband's) trials and tribulations with IVF. 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 process. In her words, 'The fertility game is like a marathon, where you just have to keep on running. No matter how many times the finishing line is moved, no matter how increasingly heavy the going or unpleasant the terrain, you pick yourself up and, ever more determinedly, keep on going. Until one day, you pray, you might just make it...'

Books By Author Imogen Edwards-Jones

Restaurant Babylon by Imogen Edwards-Jones Restaurant Babylon, Paperback (April 2014)

What makes a restaurant hot? Whose name do you need to drop to get a table? Why is one place booked solid for the next nine months while somewhere equally delicious is as empty and inhospitable as the Gobi desert? This book deals with the tricks of the food trade and what really makes this GBP90 billion a year industry tick.

Hospital Babylon by Imogen Edwards-Jones Hospital Babylon, Paperback (July 2012)

An expose of the extraordinary world of modern medicine. It takes the reader on a journey through the various departments and wards where babies are made, thighs are reduced, noses straightened and spare kidneys are flown in from the Indian subcontinent. It lets us meet doctors who sleep with nurses and doctors who sleep with patients.

Wedding Babylon by Imogen Edwards-Jones Wedding Babylon, Paperback (May 2010)

Following a week in the life of a busy wedding planner, and based on true but anonymous stories, this title takes you to the heart of an industry where emotions run high, money flows like champagne and GBP3,000 cakes are made of polystyrene.

Pop Babylon by Imogen Edwards-Jones Pop Babylon, Paperback (June 2009)

How do you make it as a pop star? Why does one boy band make it big and another disappear off the pages of the magazines altogether? Why do girls cost more than boys? Featuring scandals, this book takes you to the heart of one of the most wicked and secretive industries, a world where money talks, bullshit walks and drugs are a way of life.
