Editorial Reviews


Lehmann-Haupt reminds women that sometimes baby makes two, not three, and that in either case, they won't be going at it alone.  
The New York Times

An accessible, insightful look at today's modern families.  
 - Kirkus Book Review

A must-read for everyone interested in exploring more choices in her life.
- Louann Brizendine, M.D., author of the international bestseller The Female Brain

A talented writer and fierce feminist...[Rachel] is a woman who dares to be different. 
- Gail Sheehy, author of New York Times bestseller Daring: My Passages: A Memoir

A mix of science, statistics, interviews and personal narrative form this valuable guidebook...informative and frank...Lehmann-Haupt makes a compelling case for education and preparation. - Publishers Weekly

This book offers extraordinary, fresh, and well-synthesized information that will be useful to doctors, therapists, women, and couples who are striving to understand the complex worlds of fertility and relationships.  - Mary Pipher, author of Reviving Ophelia
 ...a fun, touching, and fascinating trip through the brave new world of technologically enhanced maternity. Lehmann-Haupt hits the zeitgeist and walks women through a new set of choices--all designed to provide more options, happiness, and, ultimately, freedom. A great book for moms, moms-to-be, and women who don't want to stop living life to the fullest.  - Rebecca Walker, author of Baby Love: Choosing Motherhood After a Lifetime of Ambivalence

With In Her Own Sweet Time Rachel Lehmann-Haupt achieves something quite difficult: she confronts the issue of coming up against the biological clock and explores the field of fertility technology in a way that is readable, relatable, and engaging. 
- Naomi Wolf, author of Give Me Liberty
