"So, maybe, you're having those moments when you feel like...you're not too sure about having a kid early on, or you'd rather wait for the perfect time. Let me tell you: It is perfectly okay to have a baby late, especially if you keep your health in check.Sure, at times, there are moments of frustration but during those times, ask yourself this: would you really have wanted to have a baby at say, 22? 25? Look back on your life and what you have been doing then. Would you have been ready to give the fun up, or slow down, or just change your lifestyle right away?"In this book you will find:* The reasons for late pregnancy* Increased trend for late pregnancy* Misconceptions about late pregnancy* Health issues regarding late pregnancy* Advantages and disadvantages of late pregnancy* Medical treatments to facilitate your late pregnancy* And much more!"Not everyone is ready to have a child right away in their 20s-or after getting married. That's seriously okay. In fact, I believe that it's better to have a child late because then, you'll have enough time to carve a career for yourself, make friends, meet people, and most importantly, explore and get to know yourself. Because when you know yourself, you won't get to project your frustrations on your kid-and you'll have a happy, healthy relationship because of that." - Linda Vermont

The Big Lie

Author: Tanya Selvaratnam
Publisher: Prometheus Books
ISBN: 9781616148461
Release Date: 2014-01-07
Genre: Family & Relationships

A candid assessment of the pros and cons of delayed motherhood. Biology does not bend to feminist ideals and science does not work miracles. That is the message of this eye-opening discussion of the consequences of delayed motherhood. Part personal account, part manifesto, Selvaratnam recounts her emotional journey through multiple miscarriages after the age of 37. Her doctor told her she still "had time," but Selvaratnam found little reliable and often conflicting information about a mature woman's biological ability (or inability) to conceive. Beyond her personal story, the author speaks to women in similar situations around the country, as well as fertility doctors, adoption counselors, reproductive health professionals, celebrities, feminists, journalists, and sociologists. Through in-depth reporting and her own experience, Selvaratnam urges more widespread education and open discussion about delayed motherhood in the hope that long-lasting solutions can take effect. The result is a book full of valuable information that will enable women to make smarter choices about their reproductive futures and to strike a more realistic balance between science, society and personal goals.
