Dr. Regina Bailey ’93
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, July 2018
At the age of 35, Dr. Regina Bailey was at the prime of her career, but in her personal life she was recovering from sexual assault and had not found her so-called “Mr. Right.” Facing declining fertility and a mother with failing health who desired a grandchild, Dr. Regina did what some said would ruin her career and life: She decided to become a single smother using a sperm donor.
In this book, Dr. Regina gives a frank commentary of her decision to pursue motherhood and the steps along the way, from finding a sperm donor and experiencing infertility to undergoing IUI and IVF, handling miscarriage, being pregnant and delivering a baby with no partner, and dealing with life as a single parent.
