to know exactly what to do In Polly Rosenwaike s debut collection of stories, women are confronting than just motherhood There are relationship struggles, bodies that are failing to behave as nature intended, and conflicting emotions within their own minds Growing up girls are rarely privy to the reality of pregnancy and childbirth It isn t like all those movies where an unexpected pregnancy is a happy blessing, or the moment you try for a baby its immediate succes, the men are all adoring, the mother to be is glowing and when the time comes the couple has supportive family, friends, money and boom her body is back to its pre pregnancy shape Of course the baby and mother bond instantly, there isn t any struggle breast feeding, absolutely no sign of postpartum depression The reality is, there is jealousy particularly when you can t get pregnant and all around you everyone else seems fruitful Some women wait for a partner to arrive and realize they are stuck in a constant state of expecting, better maybe to have a child alone, for another her child s birth represents the cycle of life and death as her beloved aunt is dying, a moment of joy tangled in grief Pregnancies themselves aren t one size fits all, for some months are spent consumed by illness, stress, pain Some women get desperate and lie, their desire to grasp at their last chance to have a child before their biological clock turns everything off Maybe forcing a man who is too young, who hasn t chosen to be a father, through deceit That sometimes, dishonesty feels like the only way to get what you want.Then there is the depths of postpartum depression, because expectant mothers never truly think it will happen to them Your emotions turning you against your own nature, a dual person who can love and then feel resentment towards the baby, repulsed with breast feeding, exhausted, visualizing doing terrible things to your child Oh no, you would never Courting thoughts of your own demise all the panic within This is just one window to look through at the characters within.A woman psychologist is a curator of babies laughter, but one infant s silence is a tragedy that forces her to face her own cowardice A childless couple by choice, in agreement find a shift in their desires when the husband changes his mind, because men can feel the tick of a daddy clock too The manuals will tell you a lot, but not everything There is so much advice about pregnancy, parenthood in books, from friends, doctors, family, strangers and online, and still yet it might not speak to your situation Parenthood makes you hate and love your partner, it can seal your bond or break it A woman may dream of being a mother her whole life, idealizing motherhood but when the moment comes may feel like an absolute failure Another woman may become a mother on accident, with reluctance and fall head over heels, discover she was born for it, a natural Others may decide to go it alone, or to never have a child at all The kingdom of parenting never truly runs smoothly It is a land dominated by disruption, illness, surprise attacks as much as celebration and love Our bodies through pregnancy are the same, they can be foe or friend Our thoughts can betray us just as much as those we love, and that bundle of joy along with our hormones can wreak havoc too, reminding mothers Look How Happy I m Making You Yes, read it There has been quite a bit of fiction recently delving into the territory of motherhood and I champion it We need to explore every crevice of what can go wrong or even just feel wrong as much as the good When a woman is struggling, it shouldn t be a desert period with no one to help It s good to know that it isn t all teddy bear picnics, that women just like you struggle sometimes There really isn t a solid supposed to in pregnancy, parenthood It isn t one size fits all What pressure to be told what you should feel, how you re meant to engage as if each baby is quiet, peaceful Some babies come into this world squalling and how can you not resent the smugness of mothers whose little sweatpea sleeps like an angel bragging about their special bond I wish I could have read such
