Birth; a rite of passage in which a woman is transformed from a well-groomed, well-organised, self-centered, carefree, childfree person into the exhausted, poo-wiping, milk-sodden, love -ravaged hero that is a new mother. Gabrielle CareyMotherlove; Births, Babies and Beyond is a wonderful collection of stories and memories from women writing about their own and others' births, their babies, and their lives beyond the moment of childbirth, when the world changed forever. Each of the writers invite the reader into their own unique world of Motherlove, that most extraordinary of loves that only mothers can experience and truly understand. The smells, the pain, the power and powerlessness, the joys, the utter exhaustion and the exhilaration, and the incredible love. Sometimes sad and moving, sometimes practical and funny, these are stories that will enthrall and delight every reader.
