DIY Mom: A solo parenting adventure

A candid, wry memoir about how a “half-liberated” woman stops waiting for Mr. Right and chooses to have a baby on her own. From the decision to freeze her own eggs and the selection of a sperm donor to her multiple attempts to become pregnant to taking her profile off, the author explains how she came to make “the best decision of her life.”
