After Birth Read & Download î 0 A widely acclaimed young writer’s fierce new novel in which childbirth and new motherhood are as high stakes a proving ground as any combat zoneA year has passed since Ari gave birth to Walker though it went so badly awry she has trouble calling it “birth” and still she can't locate herself in her altered universe Amid the strange disjointed rhythms of her days and night. Five stars for honesty Five stars for real female friendships Five stars for telling it like it is and making me cringe and feel a little yelled at but in the way you want someone to yell because it will make them feel better This book felt like a primal scream one I really needed to hear after watching so many mothers grin and say it s hard but so worth it when 95% of the time that feels pat and simplified and false and what they are supposed to say instead of the deep and complex dig into motherhood and womanhood and friendship that this book felt like

If you d like someone to tell you how to feel about c sections formula feeding circumcision cry it out and fertility treatments here is your book The answers in order never never never never and neverLook my wife recently gave birth with a midwife and a doula on her team I know there are too many c sections in America and we hoped to avoid what s called the cascade of interventions So it s not that I don t understand parts of some of Elisa Albert s arguments The beginning parts The difference is that I don t presume to tell other people how to have their children and that I didn t write a book claiming that anyone who gets a c section has been rapedWhat is the worth of a person who chooses ignorance Albert asks seriously about a friend who asks her to stop emailing links comparing medical intervention to rape writing her right off as a thought zombie and rape inviter Albert talks a lot about feminism and make no mistake if your definition of feminism differs in any way from hers she thinks you re an idiot And if you d like confirmation that her protagonist is her marionette here are interviewsHere she is on formula Plug your kid with some processed milk derivative shithow empowered you are subverting a basic function of your body showing absolutely no awareness of the agony and misery some women go through trying to breastfeed Imagine being a woman who s found herself unable to do so as some of my friends have even after enormous effort and consultants and pumping and then running across this scathing bully just peein on your face Albert makes plans to have her next child naturally by any means If I die trying If we both do Fine she says choosing the word fine to describe death Here is what Albert thinks of medical intervention Like if some corporation convinced us all that shitting is not necessary You need not labor over the toilet ladies and gentlemen Here she is comparing childbirth to pooping I don t want to get all caught up on the fact that this is a screed written by an asshole who s actively trying to endanger people and overuses bad metaphors involving shit and rape It s also a novel But it s hard because it s of a rant than a novel As a novel it is bad It has a dire plot problem in that there isn t one You can t keep the sock puppet characters straight I did like the breastfeeding swap idea I brought it up with our new parent friends Most of them felt that it was suicky Margaret was like shrug yeah I ve done thatBut again the headline here is this if you had a c section for any reason including your life or the life of your child You were raped essentially Elisa Albert is an asshole Fuck this book

After Birth Read & Download î 0 Stile terrain seems almost navigableWith piercing insight purifying anger and outrageous humor Elisa Albert issues a wake up call to a culture that turns its new mothers into exiles and expects them to act like natives Like Lionel Shriver’s We Need to Talk About Kevin and Anne Enright’s The Gathering this is a daring and resonant novel from one of our most visceral writer. I ve never had a baby and I don t plan on having one For lots of reasons some of which are echoed in this book I have been depressed though I ve been sad angry frustrated and irritable for no other reason than because my brain hates me and that is definitely something that Elise Albert nails When you are depressed all logic and rational reasoning goes out the window in favor of negative beliefs and worries that serve to reinforce your depressionI ve read many negative reviews of this book that were kind of shocking in their lack of empathy I get that not everyone likes to read about characters who are depressed or wants to read about characters that are depressed but when it comes to topics like postpartum depression awareness and empathy are some of the best weapons at our disposal Comments like motherhood isn t that bad stop complaining demonstrate how badly we need to have representations of what is a very serious problem that many new mothers struggle with So yeah this is a decidedly uncheery look at new motherhood through the eyes of Ari who has struggled with depression throughout her life In prose reminiscent of Virginia Woolf Albert describes the ways Ari struggles throughout her first year of being a mom She also highlights the ways in which Ari has always struggled to find and maintain female friendships which is a factor that compounds her postpartum depression The fact that Ari lost her mother as a teen and the fact that she has so few female friends in her life means that she doesn t have a strong female support system that can guide her through that first year Feeling like she can t relate to other women isolates her which only exacerbates her depression Over the course of the book Ari befriends another new mother struggling with depression and she learns how she can become that support system for others In that regard the book is very encouraging It is not particularly plot heavy or linear that Woolf influence The tone is fairly bleak and at times crass It is by no means a pleasant read but it s well written and phenomenally honest The negative self talk the difficulty relating to others the sense of hopelessness that comes with depression whether postpartum or not all rings so very true to me even though I m not a mother
