Dr. Singer Discusses Delayed Childbearing on Fox 26 Houston

Please click here to see Dr. Singer on Fox 26 TV - Houston describing his Delayed Childbearing column.

The Press Release on my Delayed Childbearing column attracted the attention of the producer of the Morning Show in Houston. My brief appearance on the show had an interesting start.

Do you remember the old routine...."You know you're going to have a bad day when........i.e. The Sixty Minutes Television crew is waiting for you as you arrive at your office"? Well, in 7:30 am, it went like this: You know you're going to have a rough day, when you arrive for a TV interview at Fox, and the Fox helicopter is following a car on the freeway being chased by Police. And what's more, that freeway is smack next to the TV station. I knew there was a chance that I would be pre-empted.

Lucky for all, the chase ended after 45 minutes, and there was 1 arrest and no serious injuries. I went on Fox26 as scheduled and in my shortened time allotment, still managed to describe the main points of the column.

Due to the shortening of the segment, the anchors did not have the opportunity to ask two excellent questions on their script: Why do you appeal to the parents of young adults, instead of the adults themselves? and When do you suggest that newlyweds start a family? Oh well, there's always next time.

Let me know what you think. AS

Delayed Childbearing Podcast: Dr. Singer Interviewed by Kelly Damron

Please click here to listen the to the Podcast on the Twin Peas website.

Particiapting in my first podcast was a terrific experience. Kelly Damron saw the press release for my column on Delayed Childbearing and asked for an interview. She sent me her excellent book, "Tiny Toes: A Couple's Journey through Infertility, Prematurity, and Depression".

She forwarded some sample questions and we conducted the interview via skpe since she is based in Phoenix. She asked terrific, insightful questions and I hope that my answers will be helpful to couples. AS
