“Broken Eggs” and “Good Eggs”: Understanding “Post-Ivf” Consumer Ambivalence Through Autography

This visual and narratological analysis of IVF consumption through autography/visual memoir demonstrates the multiple representational advantages afforded by the genre for consumer research; notably it allows privileged access to elusive, experiential consumer “veracity”. It also elucidates deep consumer ambivalence about IVF that is indissociable from its normalization as a technology.
