Village Fertility Pharmacy Offers Complimentary Book With First-Time, Fertility Cycle Orders

Patients Will Now Receive Kristen Magnacca's Award-Winning Book About Coping With Infertility

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - October 19, 2009) - Village Fertility Pharmacy (, a specialty pharmacy focused exclusively on infertility medications, is pleased to announce that, effectively immediately, fertility patients who place a fertility cycle order for the first time will receive a complimentary copy of Kristen Magnacca's award-winning book, "Love and Infertility: Strategies for Survival - Balancing Infertility, Marriage, and Life."

The book was recently chosen for RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association's inaugural Hope Award for best book in the "Coping" category. In it, Magnacca uses her humor and personal anecdotes to share insights, tips and exercises with people struggling with infertility. Her advice ranges from taking care of yourself, working as a team with your spouse or partner, and communicating properly with friends and loved ones.

"The strategies in this book help people become more aware, more conscious," said Magnacca, adding that many of her readers have suggested the book to people who aren't even affected by infertility. "It's really more about being grounded."

Prior to writing "Love and Infertility: Strategies for Survival - Balancing Infertility, Marriage, and Life," Magnacca authored the book "Girlfriend to Girlfriend: A Fertility Companion," which provides an intimate, first-person account of the emotional and physical tolls of infertility.

"Kristen's personal struggles with infertility and the wisdom that she has gained from her own experiences provide an immense amount of comfort to men and women who are facing infertility," said Stuart Levine, pharmacist at and co-founder of Village Fertility Pharmacy. "We're proud to share her work with our patients and provide some inspiration for their journeys toward parenthood."

Magnacca's work has been supported by Village Fertility Pharmacy for quite some time. In fact, Village Fertility Pharmacy will co-sponsor her "Holiday Survival Coaching Group" in Sandwich, Mass., on Nov. 12, Dec. 3 and Jan. 7. This three-day workshop is designed to help infertility patients cope during the holiday season and will also be sponsored by RESOLVE of the Bay State. For information about these workshops, visit

Magnacca will also be a featured speaker at RESOLVE of the Bay State's Annual Conference on Nov. 7 at the Best Western Royal Plaza Hotel in Marlborough, Mass. Village Fertility Pharmacy will be exhibiting at this event, which is open to the public. For information or to register for the Annual Conference, visit
