About the Book

Emma Brockes is thirty-seven, lives alone, and wants children. She is in a relationship (good!) but they aren’t doing the parenting together (weird!). Emma needs sperm, a doctor, and not to bankrupt herself. And that’s just the beginning – there are a million choices to make when taking the untraditional route to motherhood. Then there’s the uninvited opinions, scolding and general hysteria that always accompanies a woman’s decision to have (or not to have) children. With generous heart and humour, Panic & Joy examines essential questions about motherhood and the modern family.
