    If you d like a plain English explanation of intersex, this is the place to start.This is a good calm the frantic parents book, but it s not meant to give medical advice If your newborn baby has a disorder of sex development, read this book, but be sure to contact www.aisdsd.org or www.succeedclinic.org for support.The book follows the sex differentiation

    Dissatisfied with the title and medical lens There is an Australian book of intersex statistics and stories better on this information in my view and not so discriminatory in angle I know people would walk away thinking intersex is a disorder from this book Do not let this be your guide.
