This book looks at new methods of conception which assesses the hope they offer and the dilemmas and challenges they present. Based on 200 interviews, the authors explore the personal consequences of these new technologies for the people whose lives they touch and offer a guide to the social and psychological issues raised by the new alternatives. Some of the questions raised are how much are couples willing to go through to become pregnant, can they afford it, what are the chances of success and what are the pressures facing single people who try the methods. The book considers surrogacy with its attendant dilemmas. While the book focuses on the personal side of the technologies, it also considers public attitudes and the effect on society as a whole. The authors have also written "When Pregnancy Fails - Families Coping with Miscarriage, Stillbirth and Infant Death".
