Body Betrayal
Understanding and Living with Infertility

“I really enjoyed your book!  As a Latina, it really helped me to understand and feel that I'm not alone in this process and that the feelings I have are completely normal. I do feel as well the stigma of not being socially accepted because I'm not a mom in our traditional latin-catholic culture.”

"Congratulations Anna. It was a great read and very insightful.  Thanks for stepping out and being vulnerable in order to share and help others"

"Dr. Anna's "Body Betrayal: Understanding and Living with Infertility" had me nodding my head the entire read. It is the first family-building book I have read that speaks to two important elements that are not shared openly: religion and family dynamics within the Latinx community. This short read detailing Dr. Anna's family-building journey is relatable and validating. Create a little time and space, grab some tissues and curl up with this book!"

"Dear Anna,

Thank you for your story, so bravely and beautifully told. You shared your experience with infertility in such an intimate and sensitive way, supportive and comforting to women and men having a similar experience. You describe the details and step which help alleviate some of the fear and anxiety. My niece, Heather, also has twins- now in highschool. Every child is precious but I can see why you treasure and protect Charles and Alejandra at a whole new level. I remember a long period of tears for Heather and Adrian. Owen and Anya are kind, musical, love animals, and seem to be thriving in every way. The experience may nurture a very special kind of parent! Sharon and I were touched by your story, Anna."

With love,

Darlene and Sharon

"I am teaching multicultural counseling and think the book would be essential in lacing it through the various courses of Counseling. As the director of our program, I think it would be a text that can be adopted at the beginning of the program and integrated throughout the program in the corresponding courses."
