“People look at me weird, or they say something, and I just can’t deal.” How many pregnant women have hidden out in their homes, fearing judgment from others who can’t handle them making decisions about their own bodies?”
Angela Garbes, Like a Mother: A Feminist Journey Through the Science and Culture of Pregnancy

“What I didn’t know then was that due dates are bullshit. Or at least only a very rough idea of when you might give birth. According to the American Pregnancy Association, only about 5 percent of babies are actually born on their estimated due date.”
Angela Garbes, Like a Mother: A Feminist Journey Through the Science and Culture of Pregnancy

“We are volcanoes,” wrote the American novelist Ursula K. Le Guin. “When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains.”
