2019 Foreword INDIES Silver Winner

"The cumulative sum of these stories is an enlightening reading experience for both those who've had C-sections and those who may."--Publishers Weekly "This brave, brilliant, and astoundingly well-written collection smashes the walls of silence and shame and lets C-section survivors celebrate each other as fellow mothers, as sisters on the surgical table, as patients who went under the knife and came out changed."--Femmeliterate "Women have always been able to find narrative stories that explore vaginal birth. But what about books that just talk about what happens during C-Section and shortly after? [This] new book takes a thoughtful approach and explores a diverse lens of stories."--Mama Glow "A collection of evocative essays written by a diverse group of writer-mothers. These intimate accounts say this to the reader: I see you; you are not alone; your birth story matters . . . The editors have, indeed, triumphed in their hope 'to begin a conversation about caesarean birth.'"--Literary Mama "The C-section experience is as varied as life itself--there's guilt and gratitude, pride and regret. These mothers illuminate the whole spectrum with depth, urgency, and humor. My Caesarean is the antidote to alienation, and I dearly wish I'd had it before my own births. I'm so glad we have it now."--Meaghan O'Connell, author of And Now We Have Everything "A fresh and compelling range of voices lifting a painful topic into the light."--Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times-bestselling author of Girl in Pieces "The essays in My Caesarean refuse to idealize the birth experience and show it in all its stunning unexpectedness. This is a beautiful and important book that should be prominently shelved in the birth and parenting section of every bookstore."--Julie Schumacher, award-winning author of Dear Committee Members and The Shakespeare Requirement "This collection gathers the overlooked and under processed experiences of C-sections--each importantly different, each importantly the same--and prompts robust reflection. Together these voices create a much-needed community that will comfort and challenge, enlighten and affirm."--Beth Ann Fennelly, poet laureate of Mississippi and author of Great With Child
