I’m a psychology professor/researcher and mom of three. When I was trying to get pregnant, I read everything I could find — and was surprised to find how much advice on fertility was wrong, according to the medical research. Or it was weird, like the statistics on over-35 fertility based on birth records from 17th century France (really!) Plus so many fertility books were boring, or written by men, or written by boring men. That’s why I wrote The Impatient Woman’s Guide to Getting Pregnant.
In this blog I’ll write about some of the topics that came up when I was writing the book — I’d love to hear what you think about them, and about what your journey was like in trying to get pregnant. I’ll also use this as a place to make sure the book stays up to date with the most current research.
