Ready or Not ... Out I Come by Raechel Bull is her own incredible story of the journey which she undertook to have a child. From conception to birth, this book covers everything. The author had many hurdles to overcome before she finally became a mother and she has documented them for the world to read. She hopes that somehow this book will be of help to others who are going through similar situations. There is also a collection of stories from other people and their own unique experiences which she has incorporated into her story.
I found this book to be incredibly moving yet inspirational. She touched on a lot of subjects that are rarely discussed, such as miscarriage and IVF. The heartache she felt through the toughest of times was also felt by the reader. The fact that she battled on through many setbacks and disappointments was courageous, beyond a doubt, and it is this spirit which I feel could reach out and help others who are experiencing the same thing. Her story was an eye-opener for me. As a mother, I now feel lucky that I never experienced the hardships that she did, but I could feel her anguish and pain. The fact that she never gave up hope and that she is now indeed a mother instills hope in everyone. The stories which she has included from other people are also wonderful and I especially found the one that was told from a man's perspective interesting. I feel that this book will help others and I think the author makes some valid points on what she feels needs improvement within the health sector.
