The filmmaker stated that she felt dejected after her second IVF failed and once contemplated stepping in front of a moving car.



“I got pregnant and had my first child on the first IVF but the second one failed and I actually wanted to stand in front of a car and let the car hit me. My daughter wants a sibling. I’m not getting back on that flight with no baby. I called my friend and told her ‘I don’t think the child liked me. It didn’t stay,’” Coker said.
