    Woah This book feels like a GAME CHANGER And maybe it is, who knows, I sure don t know many graphic novels mainly about pregnancy so this may just be one of the firsts of its kind And maybe there will bein the future, only time will tell Wouldn t that be amazing, though I learned so much from it I have read stories about pregnancy, like the memoir AND NOW WE HAVE EVERYTHING by Meaghan O Connell which was fascinating but also a little bit lot traumatizing Still, ever since I read Woah This book feels like a GAME CHANGER And maybe it is, who knows, I sure don t know m...

    Kid Gloves looks like another cutesy book about pregnancy, but it s a lotthan that It also features myths and facts about pregnancy, some interesting history regarding how far obstetric medicine has come, tidbits about medical struggles, and most notably, a long section on infertility and miscarriages.There s a point Lucy makes at one point that really resonated with me, as a fellow miscarriage survivor If 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage, why aren t 25% of media portrayals of Ki...

    Shortly after I gave birth, I had the sudden realization that holy SHIT there are hundreds thousands millions of women walking around who have also gone through this wildly intense rollercoaster of an experience And yet there s not much in the mainstream that really tells the truth about this, which left me scrambling last year to figure out what was going on and what was normal I loved this graphic memoir for its honesty, humor, and simple offering of firsthand experience.I ve seen plenty Shortly after I gave birth, I had the sudden realization that holy SHIT there are hundreds thousands millions of women walking around who have also gone through this wildly intense...
