"If you work hard enough, if you want it enough, if you're smart and talented and "good enough," you can do anything. Except get pregnant. Her whole life, Lucy Knisley wanted to be a mother. But when it was finally the perfect time, conceiving turned out to be harder than anything she'd ever attempted. Fertility problems were followed by miscarriages, and her eventual successful pregnancy plagued by health issues, up to a dramatic, near-death experience during labor and delivery. This moving, hilarious, and surprisingly informative memoir not only follows Lucy's personal transition into motherhood but also illustrates the history and science of reproductive health from all angles, including curious facts and inspiring (and notorious) figures in medicine and midwifery. Whether you've got kids, want them, or want nothing to do with them, there's something in this graphic memoir to open your mind and heart."--Amazon.

COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Very informative comic submitted by lawrencea on June 14, 2019, 2:45pm Lucy Knisley is so open and honest about her experiences with pregnancy and birth, and all of the difficulties that went along with that. Her chapters about reproductive history and myths are also very informative. I love the drawings and the ways she uses color, as well.

Kid Gloves submitted by elanlange on July 7, 2019, 12:52pm Lucy Knisley is a marvelous storyteller - I’ve followed her work since the Livejournal days and she just keeps getting better. Kid Gloves is a multilayered work in which she explores not only her pregnancy, but how her journey fits into her personal history and the history of reproductive medicine (at times unsurprisingly dreadful). Heart-wrenching at times even though we know there’s a happy ending, and worth the read.
