Where do babies come from? Any parent can tell you that it's much more complicated than the stories that were passed around the playground. Between adoption, surrogacy, pregnancy complications and more, it's clear that no path to baby leads straight from point A to point B -- and that this convoluted journey looks different for every parent.
In 12 essays that share the hilarity, hope, and heartbreak of trying to get pregnant, Parenting Uncensored shares real parents' perspectives on what it takes to conceive. Their stories run the gamut from blogger Aela Mass's ups-and-downs in IVF ("I'm gay. That's my fertility issue") to Megan Jordan's fear of sharing the news of her pregnancy with her infertile friends ("I have been hesitant to talk about this new baby until I could end every sentence with a huge exclamation point. As in, 'I'm pregnant!' rather than 'I'm pregnant. Oy'"), you'll learn that any roadblock you face in getting pregnant isn't a burden you have to face alone. Several essays in the book were chosen by the Babble community as the most compelling and helpful look at the topic.
Babble, the leading site for parents sharing "tell-it-like-it-is" guidance, presents the latest volume of Parenting Uncensored, a series of short ebooks on topics of vital interest to expecting and new parents.
