I'm Jana Rupnow, Author of Three Makes Baby

I wrote Three Makes Baby after seeing hundreds of people trying to conceive with little resources to help guide them.  I needed more time with my clients to help them explore the emotional, social and psychological complexities that I observed.  The best way to get more time was to create a resource for them, hence, the publication of Three Makes Baby.

I developed my concepts, teaching tools, and observations based on decades of professional experience and personal experience as an adoptee and adoptive parent.
