Author of Gender Selection Book Featured on NBC's "Today" Show

Jennifer Merrill Thompson, author of "Chasing the Gender Dream," will appear this week on NBC's "Today" show to discuss baby gender selection.

SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) July 11, 2005 -- High-tech gender selection for preselecting the sex of a baby is a hot topic. This week, the "Today" show is doing a feature story on this issue, and author/parent Jennifer Merrill Thompson will be included in the segment.

With the help of modern strides in reproductive technology, couples can now preselect the gender of their future baby. Thompson's book "Chasing the Gender Dream" tells how. Look for her appearance later this week on NBC's "Today" (airing daily from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. EDT).

Thompson, a former newspaper writer/editor, was a mom of two boys who hoped to add a daughter to the family. After much research into gender selection, and then some attempts with MicroSort, the new sex selection technology, she and her husband welcomed their daughter. Soon after, she decided to write about her experiences and about the latest news in this area of reproductive technology.

"Chasing the Gender Dream: The Complete Guide to Conceiving Pink or Blue With the Latest Sex Selection Technology and Tips From Someone Who Has Been There" is the first published account of what it’s like to undergo MicroSort and all that it entails. Couples can gain firsthand knowledge from the book, published in 2004 by Aventine Press. The book also relates others’ experiences with sex selection and “family balancing.”
