Girl meets girl. Girl marries girl. They want to have babies - but they need a little help. Double Pregnant is author Natalie Meisner's light-hearted, poignant and informative true story of two lesbians who want to have children. For a variety of reasons, one being that Natalie's wife is a woman of colour who was adopted into a white family, the couple decides t to take the anymous sperm clinic route. Natalie and Vivien want their children to have some connection to their dor if possible. Taking matters into their own hands leads the couple to a series of often-hilarious dates with potential dors, all of whom have wildly different opinions on how the donation process should go and also of what this new, twenty-first-century version of a family will look like.
Natalie Meisner is a wife and the mother of two great boys and divides her time between Lockeport, Nova Scotia, Den Haag, Holland, and Calgary, Alberta. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of English at Mount Royal University where she teaches creative writing and drama.
