It is an excellent resource for any woman considering alternative methods of conception, regardless of sexual orientation. I highly recommend it.
Great resource for describing the different methods of becoming pregnant, considerations sperm donation, I didn't know all of this stuff before. It address physiology, actual medical procedures, nutritional needs of birth mother, and the real emotional and social factors that need to be considered including what the non birth mother may be experiencing.
I never thought could produce a child with the woman I love. With this book I know the dream we talk a lot about later is a very real possibility.
Coming from her experience as the head of Maia Midwifery in Northern California, Stephanie Brill covers not only the anatomy and physiology of what you need to know, but also the emotional aspects of trying to get pregnant. This book covers many topics - options of ways to track your fertility, increase your fertility, the pros and cons of known donors versus frozen sperm, even the logistics of inseminating, whether at home or at a clinic.
The only reason I have given this book 4 stars out of 5 has to do with the fact that this book covers a lot of alternative health treatments which may be difficult for people who are more aligned with Western medicine and do not believe in herbal treatments, acupuncture, and the like.
Best of luck to any woman who gets this book and is trying to conceive!
