Hi there! You may have found me through my Instagram or via one of the articles about Gender Swaying I’m featured in. I’m so glad you’re here. Since swaying for my daughter back in 2013, I have done some reflective thinking on the process. I’m not sure whether any of this stuff really works, but I will say that I’ve loaned the Ingender Swaying Guide to several teaching friends with all-boy families, and they’ve all ended up with a little girl.
Another thing I’d like to add is that “choosing your baby’s GENDER” is absolutely impossible. Although the term used is Gender Swaying, it should actually be called Sex Swaying. You’re attempting to conceive a male or female baby. Gender is far more complex. While I’m undecided on whether one can sway the sex of their offspring, I’m quite certain that no one can determine the gender of another person, but that’s another story for another day (and a valid and important one!).
I had my fourth baby in November 2016, with absolutely no swaying (hello, happy surprise!) and he was a BOY. If you need help with any of the abbreviations, please search on Ingender or comment below and I’ll clear it up!

I want to mention here that I was breastfeeding DS2 (14 months) and that’s why I’ve made slight modifications to the InGender recommendations.
