Misconception: A True Story of Life, Love and Infertility
Jay-Jay and Dom have been married since 2006. They always imagined that they'd get married, have children, grow old. A complication in surgery for a tumour on his aorta left them unable to conceive a child naturally. In the meantime, they suddenly became guardians of Jay-Jay's five-year-old nephew. But their hopes of having a child of their own lay in IVF. After five heart breaking rounds of treatment, they have finally decided that enough is enough. Written with a mix of brutal honesty and their trademark humour, this book follows their quest to conceive a child, charting the highs and lows of life lived in the shadow of infertility.
Jay-Jay Feeney is one third of NZ's most popular morning breakfast show, The Morning Madhouse on The Edge, along with her husband (and best-selling author) Dom Harvey. She is an ambassador for Fertility NZ and a columnist for New Idea magazine.
