About this item

"What a beautiful, heart-filled, and honest account of motherhood and womanhood overall. We need more brave voices like Molly Caro May's." -- Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein, creators of The Business of Being Born and authors of Your Best Birth "Radiant. Bursting with wisdom and wit, raw with honesty, full of the truth. This book is nothing short of remarkable, life-affirming, and breathtaking." -- Mira Ptacin, author of Poor Your Soul What if labor does not end with pregnancy but continues into a mother's postpartum life? How can the fiercest love for your child and the deepest wells of grief coexist in the same moment? How has society neglected honest conversation around the significant physical changes new mothers experience? Could real healing occur if generations of women were fluent in the language of their bodies? Molly Caro May grapples with these questions as she undergoes several unexpected health issues -- pelvic-floor dysfunction, incontinence, hormonal imbalance -- after the birth of her first child, Eula.
