Product Details


“Packed with answers to questions you probably never even thought to ask, this life-changing book is equal parts practical handbook and sensitively written resource. Highly recommended!”
—Toni Weschler, MPH, author of Taking Charge of Your Fertility

“This book is a well-researched, deeply comprehensive (and readable!) guide to building a queer family in a way that works for you.” 
—Emily Oster, author of Expecting Better

“In Queer Conception, fertility midwife Kristin Kali helps prospective parents navigate a heteronormative system . . . The book helps readers identify potential donors and surrogates, describes methods of insemination, and prepares new parents for infant feeding, which may include lactation induction for trans women and nongestational parents.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Kali distills the knowledge they’ve gained over 25 years of experience as a health care provider and advocate for queer and trans parents into a book filled with detailed information about fertility, family planning and parenthood…Fertility and family planning is often catered to straight, cisgender, monogamous couples; Kali illustrates that queer and trans parents and parents-to-be have different needs and perspectives that need to be taken into account.”
The SeattleTimes

Queer Conception decodes the science of baby making with a body-positive, gender-affirming lens.  A pivotal resource delivered with heart. Highly recommended!”
—Lindo Bacon, PhD, author of Health at Every Size and Radical Belonging

“A must-read for queer and trans parents-to-be, their providers, their extended families, allies, and anyone who wants to understand the new terrain in which it takes a sperm, an egg, a uterus, and a rainbow of genders and sexualities to make a baby.”
—Diane Ehrensaft, PhD, director of mental health at UCSF Child and Adolescent Gender Center and author of Mommies, Daddies, Donors, Surrogates
