About YPTW

I’m just another woman in her mid-20s trying to have a baby. I love acupuncture, tea, walking, yoga and massages. I have a healthy skepticism of Western Medicine. I try to keep a good sense of humor about all of the baby-making, but sometimes it gets hard. Then I get snarky, laugh and feel better. I hope this may make someone else feel better, too : )
