Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For almost forty years, How to Choose the Sex of Your Baby has been the standard reference for couples trying to increase their chances of having the son or daughter they hope for. The interest in pre-selecting the sex of a child has exploded in recent years and many new methodologies have emerged. In this new edition of their classic book, Dr. Shettles and David Rorvik provide authoritative scientific studies and compelling anecdotal evidence demonstrating that the Shettles method continues to produce results unmatched by any other method.

How to Choose the Sex of Your Baby explains the simple, at-home Shettles method and presents detailed steps to take to conceive a child of a specific gender. Dozens of testimonials from people who have used the method confirm its ease of use and its remarkable success rates. The authors also discuss the ethical issues surrounding sex-selection, using up-to-date statistics to refute the suggestion that it leads, as some critics have claimed, to male-dominated populations. They show that, in fact, it results in a better balance between the genders in society. Their analyses of the latest high-tech methods-including MicroSort and Preimplantation Diagnosis-cover everything from cost to safety to outcome.

Synopsis:

Over the last twenty-five years, thousands of couples have turned to the Shettles method for choosing the sex of their babies. And thousands have been blessed with the boy or girl they hoped for. In fact, the properly applied Shettles method gives couples at least a 75 percent chance of having a child of the desired sex. Some researchers have reported success rates up to 90 percent! Many sex selection methods have come and gone, but the Shettles method - constantly under scrutiny and continually refined - has endured. In this newly revised edition, Dr. Shettles weighs the pros and cons of the more sophisticated clinical tests, presents information on the new ovulation-timing technologies, and gives recommendations for how these developments can help achieve even better results when applied to the simple, at-home Shettles method - still the best way to conceive the boy or girl you always wanted.
