"An exhaustive resource to fill a void of books about parenthood decisions." --Library Journal

"There are many, many parenting books on miles of shelves, and a number of books on being childless, but author Jordan Davidson pulls the two subjects together here with thoughtfulness, candor, inclusiveness, and a refreshing lack of judgment." --Bookworm Sez

"Whether or not to become a parent is the biggest decision a person will ever make. Jordan's book leaves no stone unturned in helping people consider their options and will undoubtedly help people feel more confident in pursuing whatever path is right for them." --Ruby Warrington, bestselling author of Sober Curious and Women Without Kids

"So When Are You Having Kids? is a much-needed exploration of the age-old question that plagues us all at one time or another. Jordan offers an inclusive, thought-provoking journey for all humans, no matter where they are in their own questions surrounding parenthood. Packed with insight into the various ways to become a parent, alongside an honest look at just how hard it can be to achieve, this book will open your eyes to the all-encompassing role of the idea of having children in our culture--and how the stigma of maybe not wanting to choose this, or the way in which it is chosen, has kept this conversation from happening in the ways it should have before." --Lara Parker, deputy editor of BuzzFeed and author of Vagina Problems

"A thoughtfully written and inclusive guide for anyone debating one of life's biggest questions. Davidson allows the reader to not be 'sure' about something that is often described as innate or natural. It is both incredibly freeing and informative." --Allison Raskin, New York Times bestselling author of Overthinking About You

"If you've ever debated parenthood, So When Are You Having Kids? is the manual for you. Davidson's exploration of the internal debate, societal pressure, fertility science, and decision-making process behind reproduction is so thorough, you'll walk away with a clear understanding of what you actually want and how to get there. In fact, by the last page, you'll actually be prepared to answer the title question whenever a friend, family member, or stranger lobs it your way." --Riyana Straetker, senior editor of Verywell Family and former senior editor of POPSUGAR Family and Parents magazine

"It is rare for someone like me--disabled, queer, and childfree--to feel welcome in a book about having children, but Jordan Davidson's debut made me right at home. If you're deciding 'if, when, and how' to have children (or even if you've already made up your mind), Davidson's text will arm you with empowering information and a steady, guiding voice. The rest, as she gently reminds readers, is (and always should be) up to us." --Tessa Miller, New York Times editors' choice author of What Doesn't Kill You

"A refreshingly honest and inclusive look at the complexities, ambiguities, and opportunities of modern parenthood. A modern guide to the full spectrum of parent life, to help readers feel seen and validated--whoever they are, at every point in the parenthood journey."
--Liz Tenety, cofounder of Motherly

"If you're even remotely concerned with questions about procreating in the modern age, even if you're childfree, Davidson's extensively researched tome will be an essential read. As the leader of an organization focused on a population of people often forgotten about or dismissed when discussing parenthood and family formation, I was so pleased to see LGBTQ+ families (and especially the children in those families) so accurately and consistently represented. You don't want to miss this book!" --Jordan Budd, executive director COLAGE
