While there is an ample supply of medical experts who offer advice and information to the millions of women across the nation who experience infertility each year, there are few who can address the mental and emotional crisis known all too well by women who are being medically treated for infertility. Kristen Magnacca, author of Girlfriend to Girlfriend: A Fertility Companion(First Books Library, 2000) and the award-winning Love & Infertility: Survival Strategies for Balancing Infertility, Marriage and Life (LifeLine Press, 2004), is the advisor, supporter, and friend infertile women need. Love and Infertility is the recipient of the Hope Award, Best Book, Coping, from RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association.
Kristen Magnacca has served as an expert on the emotional aspects of infertility, testifying before the US Senate in the spring of 2000 about the importance of government funding for fertility research and holistic treatment. She has been highlighted in national publications and broadcast media including NBC’s The Today Show, Woman’s World magazine, PBS’ Health Week and The Boston Globe. She also is a former board member and volunteer for RESOLVE of New England.
Kristen has found her true purpose in helping other women successfully make these transitions. Her infertility challenges to conceive her two children were what initially inspired her. She learned that she could impart her hard-earned wisdom to others — no matter what their issues were — by developing systems, strategies and tactics that could be easily shared through her books, CDs, coaching sessions and workshops.
