about this item

There are more than 150,000 twin births every year, and more than five million IVF babies have been born since the technology’s inception. But current books about IVF and twin gestation focus primarily on survival strategies and medical expertise, leaving a huge gap to be filled: reflection upon the emotional journey between high-tech conception and high-risk birth. InThe Doctor and The Stork, K.K. Goldberg examines the complications of double gestation—some emotional, some physical—from a mother’s firsthand point of view, capturing the struggles common to the experience without sugarcoating the tribulations, but nevertheless offering humor, insight, and hope. Compelling and highly relatable,The Doctor and The Stork, in its laying bare of this modern mode of babymaking, does what Anne Lamott’sOperating Instructions did for parents two decades ago: tells the truth, invites laughter, and sheds light.
