What, No Baby?: Why Women are Losing the Freedom to Mother, and how They Can Get it Back

Front Cover
Curtain University Books, 2005 - Social Science - 336 pages

What, No Baby?takes us on a journey into the lives of contemporary women who plan to have it all - marriage, motherhood and work - yet have been derailed by reluctant men, insatiably demanding jobs and the everclimbing expectations of what it takes to be a 'good' mother.

Columnist and author Susan Maushart said Cannold offers 'fertility crisis management par excellence' and columnist Julia Baird said it was 'easily the best book I have read about the dilemma facing young women'.
