Guarantee the Sex of Your Baby
For many people, having a large family isn’t a reasonable option. Fortunately, medical science has ushered in a new era of family balancing where couples can determine their baby’s sex. Guarantee the Sex of Your Baby guides prospective parents step-by-step through the maze of options currently available – from the unpredictable (and now outdated) timing method, to highly effective sperm sorting, to the preimplantation genetic diagnosis, which guarantees accuracy.
The author describes the most advanced methodologies in simple lay terms so that they are easily understood. But Guarantee the Sex of Your Baby does more than explain how the technology works – it prepares the reader for the personal experience of fertility drugs, artificial insemination, and/or in vitro fertilization. A bonus chapter details the added medical benefits of genetic testing, including preimplantation screening for single gene defects like cystic fibrosis, B thalassemia, Tay-Sachs disease, sickle cell disease, and Huntington’s disease.
