Best pregnancy book I have read! Loved it!

This was fascinating. You don’t have to be pregnant, or a mother, or even planning to become one to appreciate this smart dive into the culture and science behind pregnancy, childbirth, and early motherhood. It gave me a better appreciation of the extent to which more work needs to be done in our society to support mothers, and it was one of my favorite nonfiction reads of 2018.
