'This book truly respected my time and is written for the active practitioner. The chapters and book are tightly edited. Each chapter's content made me look forward to the next. The table of contents is unique in its combining of current clinical practice, psychologic care, and patient-centered, day-to-day provision of care. As such, it fills a special and applauded niche. The content is fresh and contemporaneous. Thus, a second edition will be a must within the next couple of years.' Barbara Hoffman, Doody's Book Review Service
'... a fresh approach to the delivery of assisted conception care. It has particular relevance due to the global experience of a pandemic, as it discusses the use of technology in enhancing communication, especially around supportive care ... The book fills a gap in the available repertoire of medically assisted reproductive care text books.' Ephia Yasmin, The Obstetrician and Gynaecologist
