Review:

"The process of awaiting birth and adapting to motherhood is vivdly described and graphically illustrated with the author's own stylized but anatomically explicit prints. This book is perceptive and touching."-New York Times Book Review * New York Times Book Review * "The reader will gain valuable insight into the experience of childbirth and the individual and universal feelings of the women who share its wonder."-Los Angeles Times Book Review * Los Angeles Times Book Review * "Morch's gripping narrative of life and death at its most elementary stages is an unusually powerful and honest tale."-Chicago Tribune * Chicago Tribune *

From the Back Cover:
