About this item
Dr. Frieda Birnbaum rose to fame seven years ago when she gave birth to twin boys via IVF at the age of 60. In this candid memoir, she sheds light on what it's really like to raise twins in your 60s. To critics who said she'd be too tired, she explains that she has a new lease on life; at an age where many people think they should slow down, she's empowered -- not just to run in the backyard with the energetic boys, but also when it comes to her work as a psychotherapist, her marriage, and her relationship to herself.Above all, Birnbaum explains, women should not fear growing older. It's possible to look and feel fabulous -- and glamorous, as she proves with blonde hair and knee-high boots -- in our 60s and well beyond. Having children later in life has allowed her to build a career first, something she believes has positive effects on self-esteem as well as being vital to the marriage relationship.As wore and more people choose to give birth later in life, Birnbaum explains what it's really like -- and why it can be the most satisfying choice.
