Baby Steps: A bloke's-eye view of IVF
Fronting up at a lab with a jar of your DNA under your arm is no one's idea of a good time. But getting intimate with a yellow-lidded plastic jar is just one of the things a man's gotta do when the doctor thinks his swimmers might be sluggish.
Jason Davis always thought that he and his wife, Liz, were going to have kids. All she had to do was go off the Pill and they'd be knee-deep in ankle-biters in no time, right? After all, they were fit and healthy, had a good marriage, good jobs, and lived in baby-stroller central. How hard could it be?

Baby Steps is a funny, heart-warming and unflinchingly honest story of expectations and frustrations, pain and joy, hopes and fears. And all the things two crazy kids will do to bring a third into the world.
