Reviews for Where's the Mother? Stories from a Transgender Dad

Buzzfeed News: "an honest, accessible, and heartwarming memoir that follows his story from transition to pregnancy to finding a network of breastmilk-sharing parents."

Rewire: "MacDonald’s voice is an important and necessary one in the birthing community."

The Advocate: "... offers readers a tender, earnest window into the journey to fatherhood he and his husband took in Where's the Mother ... a candid exploration of cultural questions that will be familiar to any same-sex couple raising children in a world that isn’t always welcoming."
