Every­one knows some­one who has suf­fered from infer­til­i­ty, from dif­fi­cul­ty try­ing to get preg­nant to an inabil­i­ty to stay preg­nant, or even trou­ble hav­ing their sec­ond or third child. This affects hus­bands, wives, par­ents, and grand­par­ents in the Jew­ish com­mu­ni­ty, who often suf­fer in silence.

In her new book, New York Times colum­nist Amy Klein, a long­time Jew­ish jour­nal­ist who has worked at The Jerusalem Post, The For­ward, Hadas­sah Mag­a­zine, JTA and The Jew­ish Jour­nal of Greater Los Ange­les, helps peo­ple nav­i­gate the emo­tion­al and phys­i­cal tolls of the infer­til­i­ty jour­ney — and offers sug­ges­tions to those around them on how to best help.
