She received a bachelor of science from Texas A&M University and a master of arts, in professional counseling from Amber University.

Author and Speaker

Jana's best-selling book, Three Makes Baby-How to Parent Your Donor-Conceived Child, introduced the field to the “five common fears” that parents-to-be face as they contemplate having a non-biological child. Thousands of readers around the world have trusted her work because Jana knows what it’s like to be in a non-biological family, as an adoptee and adoptive mom.

Jana also knows what it's like to experience infertility. She and her husband had male-factor, secondary infertility and adopted their daughter from China. Since then Jana has helped thousands of people during their path to pregnancy, especially those preparing to grow their family in non-traditional ways. Working as an independent, Rupnow has fostered relationships with endocrinologists, agencies and fertility specialists across the United States. Her thorough and conscientious work has received the attention of notable organizations, including the Donor Conception Network and Embryo Awareness Group.

Rupnow’s work, includes a podcast called Three Makes Baby which encourages communication between donor conceived parents and donor conceived adults to raise awareness of the inherent challenges donor conceived families may face across the lifespan.You can listen to the podcast on all the normal platforms.

A Note from Jana about Infertility Counseling

"It's normal to need counseling support when you are going through infertility. Research shows that infertility can be a major life crisis and mental health support is a key part of the process."

A Note from Jana about Third Party Reproduction Counseling

"Third-party reproduction counseling is a vital step in the process, and many fertility doctors throughout the country refer their patients to me. Your doctor prepares you for the medical process, and I help you with your family’s psychological, emotional and social needs across the lifespan. Donor conception is a decision that impacts the rest of your life, and you will just scrape the surface in the doctor’s office. I have seen countless people in my office who are contemplating or preparing to use a donor and are searching for more information on this complex issue. I wrote and published, Three Makes Baby, as a guide for intended parents to emotionally prepare for the process. The second half of the book is dedicated to talking to your child at different stages of development."
