About the Author

Barbara Waterman earned her doctorate in Psychology and Social Relations from Harvard University in 1975. After working through not being able to conceive a child herself and several unsuccessful attempts to adopt, Dr Waterman became a stepmother to twelve-year-old twin daughters over a decade ago. She has a private consultation and psychotherapy practice in Oakland, California.


'a well-informed and passionate book...interspersing real life stories with research findings from social psychology, films and novels. The tone is intense and committed and likely to inspire and support many non-birth mothers and challenge some prejudices.' -Community Care
