Jewish single mothers

First Comes Baby Carriage, Then — Maybe — Marriage

Growing number of Jewish women opting for single motherhood.

When Emily Wolper broke her engagement six years ago, she promised herself that if the time came when she felt ready to have a child and she was still single, she’d have one on her own.
Now 37, Wolper, a college admissions consultant in Morristown, N.J., is undergoing in-vitro fertilization treatments. If all goes according to plan, Wolper will join the growing ranks of Jewish women embarking on the journey to become a single mother by choice.
