Every step of the journey to become a parent, while exciting, can also be daunting with countless choices and varying advice.

In Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me?, parents from around the world speak honestly about their experiences of assisted conception, pregnancy, birth, sex, relationships and raising children.

Woven between the stories are insights and tips, as well as evidence-based information and recommended further reading about the topics referred to in the stories.

Unlike other books on parenting, this is not another prescriptive book by an 'expert'. The experiences and wisdom of the parents who contributed to this book will surprise you, make you laugh, cry, feel encouraged and supported.

If you are about to become a parent or are thinking of having children, the stories you read will give you some insight to the process, both physical and emotional, and will help you along your own journey to creating a family.
