Les Baigneuses

January 28, 2016

I wrote an essay for Mamalode about the wonderful community of women who buoyed me through my third pregnancy.

“…We talked about politics and hairdos and where to buy good challah bread.  I heard stories about their children’s births, about their careers, travels, struggling with illness. And unlike the young mothers groups that discuss pregnancy symptoms, birthing plans and breastfeeding ad nauseam, these women rarely asked me anything about my pregnancy and upcoming birth. To them, you carried a baby and gave birth to a baby. God willing, all went well.”
