'One of the most original talents in comics I’ve seen in a long time.'—Steve Bell, Guardian
Kate Evans, celebrated author of the breastfeeding bestseller, The Food of Love, acclaimed cartoonist and mother, turns her attention to the joys and pains of growing a baby.
Evans deftly handles the physical and emotional changes that come with being pregnant, looking at the practicalities of every stage as well as the challenges that may arise. Her no-nonsense, quirky and accessible text is illustrated throughout with detailed artwork to guide the reader through the intricacies of human reproduction, whilst her customary laugh-out-loud cartoons demystify the complexities of pregnancy and birth.
The book includes: a graphic guide to conception; practical help for those trying to conceive; early pregnancy advice; information on abortion rights, miscarriage support, screening and scans, physical preparations for birth and the art of birth.
