Secrets are Like Land Mines

By Jennifer Lahl and Matthew Eppinette As we approach the Father’s Day holiday, we can’t help but think of those who do not know their fathers.

Protect Your Fertility

By Jennifer Lahl, CBC President I recently wrote about women who wait later into life to conceive and find they struggle with what they call “infertility.” In fact, there is no infertility as a result of aging; rather it is the biological reality of menopause.
