Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical resources (pages 244-245).
Formatted Contents Note: A little history -- The first try -- Kid gloves -- The foul first -- The sleepy second -- The eternal third -- Birth story -- Coming home.
Summary, etc.: "If you work hard enough, if you want it enough, if you're smart and talented and "good enough," you can do anything. Except get pregnant. Her whole life, Lucy Knisley wanted to be a mother. But when it was finally the perfect time, conceiving turned out to be harder than anything she'd ever attempted. Fertility problems were followed by miscarriages, and her eventual successful pregnancy plagued by health issues, up to a dramatic, near-death experience during labor and delivery. This moving, hilarious, and surprisingly informative memoir not only follows Lucy's personal transition into motherhood but also illustrates the history and science of reproductive health from all angles, including curious facts and inspiring (and notorious) figures in medicine and midwifery. Whether you've got kids, want them, or want nothing to do with them, there's something in this graphic memoir to open your mind and heart."--Amazon.
Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 January #1
    *Starred Review* Covering her childhood, traveling abroad, coming of age, and getting married, Knisley's hearty handful of previous graphic memoirs (the latest of which is Something New, 2016) are standouts in the genre. In this recollection of getting pregnant and giving birth to her son, Knisley once again writes and illustrates her life with an introspective transparency that, even for a topic as not-new as having a baby, feels totally novel. Knisley interrupts her narrative with enlightening interludes that share facts and historical oddities of pregnancy—a topic she found fascinating since she was a kid. Even in her signature neat and bright cartooning style, Knisley relays the despair of miscarriage in dark squiggles and visual metaphors, the yucky first trimester in a desperately green-faced Lucy, and the terror of her son's birth in a spare black and white section narrated by her husband, John. The book's title contains perhaps its greatest takeaway—that the unexpected difficulties of becoming a mom taught Knisley to be a little gentler with herself, to handle herself with kid gloves. ?In sharing her journey's bumps and switchbacks, Knisley assures that there's no perfect pregnancy story and that even a lot of strife won't dim the joy of a child's ecstatic arrival.
