LIKE A MOTHER
A Feminist Journey Through the Science and Culture of Pregnancy
now available in paperback
“Like a Mother is a deeply-researched history of human reproduction; it is a jewel-bright memoir; it is hard science beautifully translated; it is funny; it is intersectional; it will crack you open and fill you with awe. Required reading for mothers, and double-required for everyone else.”
—Lindy West, author of the New York Times bestseller Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman
“You don't have to be a mother or even a woman to be fascinated by the science and physiology that she writes about.”
—Terry Gross, Fresh Air
LIKE A MOTHER offers a visceral, full-frontal look at what’s really happening during these life-changing months, and why people deserve access to better care, support, and information.
