Like a Mother: A Feminist Journey Through the Science and Culture of Pregnancy

#ad
#ad
Harper Wave #ad - With the curiosity of a journalist, the perspective of a feminist, and the intimacy and urgency of a mother, she explores the emerging science behind the pressing questions women have about everything from miscarriage to complicated labors to postpartum changes. Your obstetrician will cautiously quote statistics; online sources will scare you with conflicting and often inaccurate data; and even the most trusted books will offer information with a heavy dose of judgment.

. A candid, feminist, and personal deep dive into the science and culture of pregnancy and motherhoodLike most first-time mothers, Angela Garbes was filled with questions when she became pregnant. The result is a visceral, and why women deserve access to better care, full-frontal look at what’s really happening during those nine life-altering months, support, and information.

Like a Mother: A Feminist Journey Through the Science and Culture of Pregnancy #ad - Infused with humor and born out of awe, appreciation, Like a Mother debunks common myths and dated assumptions, and understanding of the female body and its strength, offering guidance and camaraderie to women navigating one of the biggest and most profound changes in their lives. The expectant father The Ultimate Guide for Dads To Be.

To educate herself, the food and culture writer embarked on an intensive journey of exploration, diving into the scientific mysteries and cultural attitudes that surround motherhood to find answers to questions that had only previously been given in the form of advice about what women ought to do—rather than allowing them the freedom to choose the right path for themselves.

In like a mother, garbes offers a rigorously researched and compelling look at the physiology, and psychology of pregnancy and motherhood, biology, informed by in-depth reportage and personal experience. What exactly is a placenta and how does it function? How does a body go into labor? Why is breast best? Is wine totally off-limits? But as she soon discovered, it’s not easy to find satisfying answers.
