How many times have you heard the words, “It will happen?”

For Laura and her husband, Scoop, the phrase that once brought comfort, hope and reassurance began to lose all positive meaning.

When they first started trying for a baby, they had no idea what they would be in for. After the heartbreak of each loss, when the world around her frustratingly seemed to carry on like normal, Laura struggled to cope with her inability to do something others seemed to find so easy. In this candid memoir, she shares her isolating experiences and talks openly and honestly about how she and her husband navigated the harsh realities of their rollercoaster journey to parenthood.

It Will Happen covers:

- trying to conceive and the strain on relationships

- miscarriage, ectopic and molar pregnancies

- jealousy and resentment

- treatments and testing

- the anxiety of pregnancy and motherhood after loss

- communicating with people in these situations

Written from the heart of someone with first-hand experiences, It Will Happen gives you tools and information to feel empowered and supported through the difficult times when trying to conceive. Who ever really knows what WILL happen? What’s important is that it CAN happen.

Laura Buckingham is a wife, mother, nurse and blogger. She has been on an incredible journey to start her family, dealing with recurrent miscarriage and pregnancy loss.

She started blogging to help process her thoughts and emotions during some of her darkest times but soon found that it was helping others too. Many people reached out to Laura and it was clear that her story could provide some hope for others who were on similar journeys.

She has also joined forces with another miscarriage mumma to create a podcast named ‘The Worst Girl Gang Ever’. It focuses on open and honest conversations surrounding miscarriage and pregnancy loss.

Laura lives in Kent with Scoop, Bertie, Cooper the dog and Ernie the tortoise.

She hopes this book will help you navigate your own journey and that you enjoy reading her memoir.

    Finished it in one sitting, a ‘can’t put it down’ read!
    It’s written with such raw & inspiring honesty.
    A brave & emotive book.
    A must-have for anyone who has or knows anyone who has experienced pregnancy loss.

    I hadn't realised just how much my lovely daughter in law and her husband, my son, had
    been through to realise their dream of being parents.
    I read the book from cover to cover as soon as I received it and I cried. I cried for Laura and Brett, I cried for the grandchildren I didn't get to cuddle and I cried for all the other young women who are going through recurrent miscarriage and pregnancy loss.
    I would encourage anyone who is going through the same thing to read Laura's book. It's a very honest account written by a very intelligent and brave young woman who wants to educate other young women and to let them know they are not alone.
    Please, please read the book.
    Educate yourself.
    And remember you are not alone.

    Although I already knew most of Laura's story I was so excited to be able to purchase a copy of her amazing book. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. Her honest and open approach when talking about her struggles and feelings is so inspiring and relatable. I recommend everyone reads this book, whether they have personally struggled with fertility and/or loss, or just to gain a better understanding to be able to support someone else who has.

  • Sheila Lamb author of This is Book Series

    Writing about your own experience of the devastation of recurrent miscarriage and pregnancy loss isn’t something that everyone can do, but thankfully Laura has done this with searing honesty. In her book It will happen, she shares the raw bee emotional realities of this trauma, which is all too often brushed aside by those who’ve never lost a pregnancy and simply don’t understand that the person is grieving and that this can look different for everyone. Not only will Laura’s words bring comfort to others going through loss but will also raise awareness of this taboo, misunderstood subject.
