Baby making for everybody : family building and fertility for LGBTQ+ and solo parents

Rachlin, Ray (author.). Goodman, Marea, (author.).

Summary: "In Baby Making for Everybody, queer millennial midwives Ray Rachlin and Marea Goodman use their professional expertise to demystify the dizzying process of pursuing parenthood as queer and solo people, offering concrete, gender-affirming advice on topics like tracking fertility, choosing a sperm donor, legal considerations, IVF, IUI, adoption, navigating gender and pregnancy, and more.
