Publisher's Summary

Thanks to technology and marriage equality, more and more people are looking to become parents. Third-party reproduction has become easier, more accessible, and more successful, yet it is a complex process. 

Regardless of their gender or marital status, people come to the process with questions like: 

  • "How are sperm, eggs, embryos, or surrogates screened?"
  • "What are the legal issues surrounding surrogacy?"
  • "How do I find an egg donor?"
  • "How do I tell my family's story?"

Your Future Family is the definitive handbook to answer these important questions.

This book will fill a void for hopeful parents and their loved ones, answering questions, both common and complex, that have not been suitably addressed in previous books.

Filled with personal anecdotes from author Kim Bergman's own life, as well as the lives of her clients, it is both informative and reassuring.

Critic Reviews

“As a parent who was personally helped by Kim Bergman, there is no better book to read about assisted reproduction. Her expert advice along with her openness and honesty about the process is clear on every page.” (Andy Cohen, host, executive producer)

A great and thorough overview

My daughter was born via IVF and I still learned new things about assisted reproduction while reading this book. The book is conversational and not at all dry, even at times when scientific concepts are being introduced. The tone is humorous without trying too hard. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to start the journey of creating a family through assisted reproduction, or even if you’re just curious about how it all works.
