More than 150,000 twin births occur in the United States every year, and over five million IVF babies have been born worldwide since the technology’s inception. In The Doctor and the Stork, K.K. Goldberg offers a firsthand, week-by-week reflection upon the unique fears and joys surrounding a high-tech conception and high-risk multiple pregnancy. With the author’s eccentric family and wry humor in the mix, this is a highly relatable story that’s hard to put down. “Not just a smart and funny book about twins—a smart and funny book,” wrote best-selling author Pamela Druckerman, on reading The Doctor and The Stork.
