iVillage: Read the Transcript of Our Twitterchat with Savvy Auntie Melanie Notkin!
Just in time for Auntie's Day this Sunday, July 24, Melanie Notkin caused a stir online with her essay, "The Truth About Childless Women," a missive on how her "infertility is circumstantial but [her] life is not barren." iVillage caught up with the entrepreneur and author of Savvy Auntie: The Ultimate Guide for Cool Aunts, Great Aunts, Godmothers, and All Women Who Love Kids, on Twitter to chat about her reaction to the strong reactions to her piece, what it means to be a Savvy Auntie, her best tips for aunts and aunts-to-be, and more. Check out the transcript below, and join the 50,000-strong "auntorage" at SavvyAuntie.com. You can also read an excerpt of Notkin's book here.
