Just how taboo is the subject of a woman's waning fertility? If you're scrambling because your childbearing years may end before you've had the family you desire, are you finding emotional support readily available...or hard to come by?
Mira Kaddoura, an artist in Portland, OR, has created an online gizmo, The Wonder Clock, that "counts down to the end of her childbearing years," and that will count down yours as well, in the form of an app that sends you periodic reminders. She told Forbes magazine that the twin goals of her project are to help women face their fears and to give them a forum for support and discussion. On her site, she writes, "We are women, and we are ticking. But we are so much more."
