Introducing my new website

I decided to start The Baby Decision Blog to share with a wider audience, wisdom, advice, decision-making and coping techniques that I have developed over 30 + years and shared with my clients, workshop participants, and readers of my book The Baby Decision, originally published in the 80’s soon to be released in a revised and updated 2nd edition available as both an e-book and a paperback.

I  will be writing and sharing posts about:

Parenthood –Decision Making

Childfree Decision-Making

Living the Most Satisfying Childfree Life


High Risk Pregnancy


Transition to Parenthood

The One-Child Family

Single Parenting

Infertility and Pregnancy Loss

Donor Eggs and Donor Sperm



Staying Close to Your Partner After Having a Baby

How Long to Stay Home after Having A Baby

Managing Career and Parenthood in a Way That’s Fair to Both of You

Managing Changes in Your Relationships With Family and Friends After Having a Baby or Deciding to Be Childfree

In my blog posts I will report interesting new research, titles and/or reviews of new books on the subjects, practical advice e.g. 10 Ways to Cope with Infertility. I will also publish guest blogs from other experts in the field, providing links to their websites and other websites that I have vetted for you.

See below for links to posts I have written on these topics for, a therapist finder website and for RESOLVE New England, the local/national fertility advocacy organization.
