Have you ever wondered what happens to the thousands of frozen embryos created as part of the IVF process?
“Lives in Limbo” is a contemporary tale that will take you on an emotional rollercoaster as it tells the story of four families facing the dilemma of what to do with their embryos in storage.
Did you know that there are over 100,000 frozen embryos in Britain? Every year, thousands more are created, and every year, couples must choose between using these embryos in another IVF cycle, donating them to scientific research, giving them up for embryonic adoption or disposal.
For four families, making this difficult decision will prove a threat to their happiness, security and well-being. Guilty secrets will be revealed, family ties pushed to the limit, marriages tested and one teenage girl will have a brutal introduction to the world of adult decisions.
If you are considering IVF, or know someone who has gone through the process, this poignant and moving tale by an exciting new author is a ‘must read’, exploring with compassion and sensitivity this lesser-known aspect of infertility treatment.
