“The big myth this book takes on is that what’s out there is all there is. You feel like, in your choices regarding motherhood, there’s a right way and wrong way to do it. All of us are really just doing the best we can.” Explicit Connections: PW Talks with Angela Garbes

Thrive sat down with Angela Garbes, the author of the book, "Like a Mother - A Feminist Journey Through the Science and Culture of Pregnancy," to talk about the connection between breastfeeding and feminism, and the importance of maternal well-being.

“Our culture makes it seem like a biological trap, when in fact it’s a superhuman power. To be able to grow someone, birth, and then feed them with just your body? Why don’t we give that worth and value?”
