Through pregnancy, birth and early childhood, Rachel Bower’s poetry takes us on an unsentimental journey from womb to world. Along the way, she explores the largely unmapped territories of loss, bewilderment, shame, transformation and betrayal, and reclaims the intimate histories, mythologies and wisdom our bodies share. This thought-provoking collection takes a frank, unflinching look at the joys and challenges of modern parenting, moving seamlessly between the mysterious, almost magical stages that make us what we are people who create people.
