kathryn-kefauver-goldberg-authorI’m a writer, living in Berkeley, California, with my husband and twin sons.

A MacDowell Fellow and MFA graduate, my writing has been published in The New York Times, The Sun, and in numerous literary journals and anthologies.

I’m working on a memoir about the gritty miracle of twin pregnancy, the story of my year of waiting without pants — first in doctors’ offices through IVF, then as a “high-risk” mom-to-be of multiples, and finally, in the hugeness of the last trimester.

Several of my stories about infertility, IVF and twin pregnancy have appeared on Babycenter.com, including “How Technology Gave Me Family” and “How to Gain 70 Pounds for a Twin Pregnancy.”

I’m excited to be contributing regularly to The Huffington Post, and getting lots of feedback— from doctors, patients and parents alike—most recently on “20 Things I Wished I Could Say to My Fertility Doctor When I Was Her Patient,” and “A Twin Mom’s Post-Infertility Survivor Guilt.”

You know, "normal," for parents of multiples. A few years in, I have my own answer to this question.
