What We’re Reading: February

We were so fortunate to have our friend Ali Prato join us to talk about her new book, Work of ART, a children’s book about IVF and Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART).  Check out our conversation here.

Ali is a journalist, Fertility Rally co-founder and Infertile AF podcast host (Michelle was so grateful to be one of her podcast guests).

Ali is an infertility warrior and advocate who went through secondary infertility before having her second child, Sonny, through IVF. Ali’s podcast, Infertile AF, which was founded in 2019, has released more than 250 episodes and has been downloaded globally more than 1.4 million times. Listen to Infertile AF here.

“I wrote this book because I want all kids who were born through Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) to know how wanted they were, and how loved they are,” Ali says. “Creating this book has been a true labor of love, and I hope readers both young and old love reading it as much as I loved writing it.”

Book Summary

Meet Sonny, an ordinary kid with an extraordinary love for basketball and the NBA. He dreams of making slam dunks and three-pointers, just like his heroes on the court. But there’s something about Sonny that sets him apart from the other kids – he was conceived through Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) and IVF. 

As Sonny learns his origin story, he also finds out how much his mom loves being a mom to him and his older sister, Ever, and about the profound love and determination that brought him into the world.

This heartfelt, personal story, written by journalist, IVF mama, Infertile AF podcast host and Fertility Rally co-creator Ali Prato, invites young readers on a heartwarming adventure that explores the complex themes of family, infertility, and the miracle of science, love and luck. 

Ali explained her motivation behind writing this book:

“When I was going through my Secondary Infertility journey, I have never felt so lost and alone in my life. I didn’t know much about my own fertility, and I didn’t know ANYTHING about IVF. Years later, once I finally had my IVF baby, Sonny, I vowed that I would raise awareness and help normalize the conversation around infertility, miscarriage, IVF and Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), for anyone who was going through it after me.”
