Rosanna Davison has revealed the title and release date of her book about her fertility journey. The mother of three shared the exciting news to social media with an emotional statement and video saying; “I’m jittery because its such a personal thing and I’ve put so much work into it.”

For Rosanna, and her husband Wes, their journey to parenthood was difficult. After suffering 14 devastating miscarriages the couple decided to have a child via surrogate. They welcomed their baby girl, Sophia, through surrogacy in 2019 and then in 2020 Rosanna discovered she was pregnant with twins.

They then welcomed twin boys, Hugo and Oscar in November of last year, and Rosanna has been extremely vocal about her fertility journey since she revealed their struggles on The Late Late Show in 2020. Now, she has written a book which goes into their story in more detail.

Speaking about the book, which is called When Dreams Come True: The Heartbreak and Hope on My Journey to Motherhood, she said; “My aim in writing this book about our struggles with fertility, from being told I wouldn’t be able to carry my own baby, to the long & challenging surrogacy journey we undertook to have Sophia, followed by the joy of welcoming naturally conceived identical twins less than a year later, is to help normalise the conversation about infertility & pregnancy loss & to examine the stigma & silence that can still surround it.”

“I feel that sharing my story about the frustration & loneliness we experienced will help to contribute to the growing awareness of miscarriage, an experience sadly shared by so many.”

Continuing she said; “I also write about their birth, my C-section recovery, breastfeeding, maternal mental health, life as a working mum & how we’ve adapted to the chaos at home with 3 under 2!”

Rosanna also shared that she wanted this book to help others going through the same difficulties feel less lonely; “By sharing the heartbreak & hope on my path to motherhood, I hope to give others struggling with infertility, pregnancy loss or even new parenthood the support to feel less alone on what can be a difficult & traumatic road.”

“I also wrote it to offer hope & comfort to those of you that may deal with infertility in the future. When I was struggling to cope with my multiple miscarriages & as our treatment options were running out, I was desperate to know that fertility miracles can & do come true.”

“But above all, I wrote this book for Sophia, Hugo & Oscar to read in the future so that they’ll know how they came into the world, how much we longed for them & how deeply loved they are. I hope that they’ll show it to their children, and perhaps their grandchildren will one day read our story of love, loss, hope & a family dream come true.”

When Dreams Come True: The Heartbreak and Hope on My Journey to Motherhood is published by Gill Books and will be released on the 8th of October.
