11- AND BABY MAKES THREE
Harlyn Aizley is the go-to-girl for anything remotely related
to lesbian parenting. Her book, Buying Dad, and anthology,
Confessions of the Other Mother, were vital guides in
helping you and your partner navigate the process of
starting a family and having a baby. ($14.95)
In Buying Dad, Harlyn Aizely moves through the process of
a lesbian couple getting pregnant as smooth as a baby
through the birth canal. Up and down their rollercoaster of
“sexual science,” the ride is as unexpected as it is intimate
as Aizley and her partner (Faith) take baby steps toward
motherhood.
