Imagine if you were told that you may never have children, that you’d never hold your own baby in your arms. And yet, what if you could find a way? Mission to Motherhood will inspire anyone facing the possibility of a childless future. Author Amira Mikhail shares her powerful story of how she tackled and overcame obstacle after obstacle on her journey to motherhood – from fibroids, endometriosis, infertility and miscarriage, through IVF and surrogacy, to finally bringing her baby into the world. ‘When I felt alone, stressed and afraid, hearing other women’s stories pulled me through.’ The power of shared experiences propelled her to write this book for those who are still suffering alone, who are victims of the ‘silent epidemic’ of infertility. This is a story of hope, courage and determination, and a refusal to give up the dream of motherhood.
Amira Mikhail was born and raised in Canada. After graduating as a veterinarian in 2006 she moved to Christchurch, New Zealand, where she has lived and worked for over 10 years. Unable to maintain a pregnancy, she finally became a mother through surrogacy. She wrote this book to provide information and hope to those who continue to struggle on their journeys to parenthood.
