Infertility and The Art of Waiting

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:12 pm on 22 February 2017

To the one in four New Zealanders who experience infertility, disappointment is a constant companion. It's the invisible disability no one knows how to talk about says Belle Boggs, an author who has experienced the pain of infertility herself.  She writes about her own experience, the complexity of assisted reproduction and the meaning of family in her book, The Art Of Waiting: On Fertility, Medicine, And Motherhood.
