Janice Min, it turns out, is surprised at the negative reaction to her column that ran this past weekend in The New York Times, in which the former Us Weekly editor bemoans the pressures on new moms to look thin.

Can't I get a free pass? she asked in the piece, noting even her Los Angeles manicurist seems shocked a 42-year-old would still be carrying baby weight four months after giving birth.

Moms across the country, she wrote, are suffering from an unrealistic celebrity culture idolizing both the baby bump and the mommy bounce back, in which stars shed pregnancy weight within weeks and look even better than before.

Publisher: Avery Trade (April 22, 2004)The Garden of Fertility: A Guide to Charting Your Fertility Signals to Prevent or Achieve Pregnancy--Naturally--and to Gauge Your Reproductive Health
by Katie Singer

-- A guide to using fertility awareness - that is, reading fertility signals in order to prevent or achieve pregnancy.

Certified fertility educator Katie Singer explains how to observe and chart fertility cycles to determine when a woman is most fertile to increase chances of conception or to exercise birth control naturally - a method that, when followed precisely, is as effective as the Pill.

Unlike other books on fertility awareness, The Garden of Fertility also describes how to use the charts to gauge the gynecological health and offers non-medical options for strengthening reproductive wellness.

This book provides all the information women never learned in sex education class but should have.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
