Juliet Miller is a Jungian Analyst in full time private practice in London. Prior to training as an analyst she worked as a writer and producer/director of documentaries and made films on many aspects of women's, environmental and social issues. Jane Haynes is a Jungian Analyst working in full time private practice in central London.
At a time when many of us are struggling with the mass of
new information about ART and attempting to assess the impact that
it will have on people's lives, the editors have helped us to fill
many gaps in our knowledge. The imaginative choice of contributors
ensures that we are both informed on many levels and stimulated
into thinking further about the growing dilemmas. -

It was a fascinating, stimulating, reflective, pleasurable and sometimes emotional read. This is an important book in our field and my hope is that this overview will encourage you to beg, borrow or buy Inconceivable Conceptions. - Jane Read in the Journal of Fertility Counselling, 2004
