A taboo-busting, funny, and poignant audiobook about choosing to have a baby by yourself.
When Liv Thorne was in her twenties, and single, she would joke to friends that if Mr Right didn’t come along, she’d have to take matters into her own hands and have a child on her own. When she was still single in her thirties, it stopped being a joke and she started researching sperm banks and fertility clinics.
Liv’s Alone is an honest and hopeful memoir that captures the joy and the challenge that is parenting alone by choice. From smashing the fairy tale story that we’re fed from a young age and grieving the life you thought you were going to have, to buying sperm from Denmark and bringing a baby into the world, Liv guides readers through the highs and lows with warmth, humour and understanding.
This audiobook is for anyone who might want to take charge of their parental destiny, learn more about modern families or want to be reassured that there is no right or wrong way to parent.
