What, a book about fertility that doesn't blame women? In an otherwise barren national debate, Cannold offers fertility crisis management par excellence' - Susan Maushart, columnist and author.What, no baby? takes us into the lives contemporary women who plan to have it all yet have ended up childless due to reluctant men, demanding jobs and the ever-increasing expectations of what it takes to be a good mother. Respected researcher and ethicist Leslie Cannold argues that women want to mother just as much as they ever did but are unwilling to sacrifice everything they've built to do so. A must-read for anyone concerned about Australia's decline in fertility.
