A frank honest view of a woman's pregnancy and birth of her first child, as documented by the author's journaling and the pictures taken of her by her photographer through the stages of her pregnancy. I liked the author because I could relate, as she had an English husband and frequently had migraines. Plus she was smart and the book was easy to read and didn't glaze over the uncomfortable parts of pregnancy/childbirth that a lot of books leave out.
