Frozen Hope: My IVF Journey
After a stellar career as a world champion aerial skier, Jacqui Cooper's only hope to start a family was IVF. While there's plenty of technical information out there for women embarking on this process, Jacqui yearned for some real, honest, warts-and-all advice on the highs and lows of IVF. But she couldn't find it. So, in true Jacqui style, she decided to write it herself.
Frozen Hopeis Jacqui's own story of IVF- the emotional responses she didn't expect, the things she wished she'd known, the things she wished she'd prepared for and those she could never have anticipated. It's a story of hope despite disheartening odds, extraordinary perseverance and, ultimately, joy and motherhood.
Jacqui Cooper is Australia's most successful aerial skier. In a career spanning two decades, she became the first woman in Olympic history, summer or winter, to represent Australia at five Olympic Games. Jacqui won five world titles, 39 World Cup medals, 24 World Cup wins and three major World Championship medals, and is now a motivational speaker and the mother of three small children. She has also just launched a gluten-free range of frozen dough products, Food for Me.
