“Not just a smart and funny book about twins—a smart and funny book.” —Pamela Druckerman, best-selling author of Bringing Up Bebe: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting.


“If you’re very, very pregnant—if you’re cooking up two brand new humans, not just one—K.K. Goldberg has written the book for you. Filled with humor and reassurance, The Doctor and the Stork will walk beside you through each week of weirdness, discomfort and generalized anxiety. If you’re tired of reading and rereading the one page about twins in all the other pregnancy books, this is a required text—the What to Expect When You’re Expecting for the rest of us.” —Caitlin Flanagan, author of To Hell With All That: Loving and Loathing Our Inner Housewives 

“If this book had been available to me as I started the IVF journey to twin parenting, it would have been so much more bearable: I would have been easier on myself, felt less alone, and been reassured that while the experience is extreme others have passed through it unscathed, or at least with only a few stretch marks.”
—Becky Worley, technology contributor ABC News/Good Morning America

“Her stories have heart, humor, and a keen eye for human foibles.”
—Sy Safransky, editor and publisher of the Sun 

“Very, very funny—and very true—K.K. Goldberg tells it like it is, with humor, insight, and the wisdom of having survived the marathon journey of a high-tech twin pregnancy—bravo!”—Dr. Barbara Luke, coauthor of When You’re Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads
