Please, read this award-winning book instead. Use it to get some distance from your immediate emotions and widen your perspective. You can reality- check your assumptions and make your own best decision. A physician wrote it with the help of 15 other professionals (12 women and 3 men). In it you’ll explore essential questions about single motherhood, adoption, and abortion to help you carefully think through your decisions about your unplanned pregnancy. You’ll find resource chapters that inform you and save you time in getting help. You can use the book to open a conversation with loved ones.

The book’s single motherhood questions help you explore how single motherhood would affect you, your partner, your child, and your family. Use it to assess your single mothering skills.

Author

Jeff Duffey MD

For years women have shared their insights with Dr. Duffey. Out of their differing voices come this book’s unique wisdom and compassion. They confided in him the questions they regretted not asking themselves about their pregnancies. He relays those to you. Yet, as a psychiatrist, Dr. Duffey didn’t work just with women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. He treated their parents, single mothers, and women who have had abortions. He saw birth-mothers, adoptive parents, adoptees, people glad they were born and those wishing they hadn’t been. Their views give the book its depth. Dr. Duffey consulted with gynecologists, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and other professionals. He searched extensively for reliable resources. He selected 78 that offer you help in pursuing your decisions. Working through this book and its resources make it less likely you will make a mistake than if you just browsed the biased internet. Can you afford to make a mistake?
