Dare to Dream: My Struggle to Become a Mum – A Story of Heartache and Hope


Izzy Judd shares the story of her and her husband Harry’s fertility journey in this honest and heartfelt memoir.

‘All I ever wanted was to be a mum – I couldn’t wait and it felt as though my time was so close. But the months started to tick by, with each one ending in disappointment and frustration. And then the inevitable panic started to set in …’

Having been told by doctors that, due to Izzy’s polycystic ovarian syndrome, they would have difficulty conceiving – and after two years of trying – Izzy and Harry turned to IVF.

Izzy’s aim, drawing on her own experience, is to break through some of the taboos surrounding miscarriage, IVF and fertility issues. This brutally honest and deeply personal account will acknowledge the struggles that so many couples go through but will ultimately focus on the positive, life-changing and remarkable results that IVF can yield. One in seven couples in the UK have difficulty conceiving and although many babies are now born through IVF, there is still a sense of awkwardness around the subject.

Izzy hopes that this book will be a companion to those going through similar challenges to those she has experienced. As she herself says, ‘No couple should have to go through it alone and in silence.’

    Left me feeling a bit cold I am sorry to say this book left me feeling a little cold. Whilst I admire Izzy for highlighting fertility struggles, the things she does to tackle them – private medical care, special diets, meditation and relaxation classes (and the private breastfeeding consultant after the birth of Lola) are simply not possible for most working women who are at the mercy of the NHS and may not have the time or money to do such things. Izzy lists some of her useful tips at the end of the book, but again…
