A brilliant, control-freak fertility doctor re-channels her grief over her own infertility into making her patients’ plans happen. When she discovers an experimental IVF protocol and struggles to get the funding to support the trial, she must enlist the Differently Fertile Support Group, including her ex-husband’s naturopathic GOOP-goddess new wife. To learn empathy for the first time in her life, she must take on her toughest patient yet: herself.
