Already On The Move

THE BACKSTORY: Baby’s can squirm and wiggle over to the smell of their mother’s milk and Imago is a really great book. Like late pregnancy, I read a lot of books during the newborn months and while I was recovering from surgery, but Imago is the one I connected with most deeply at the time. […]

Panic Rises

THE BACKSTORY: The last few weeks of comics we’ve focused in a lot on the birth and the moments in the hospital just after not only because it is a really big life transition, but also because many of these moments the first days after birth really showcase some themes that we would grapple with the first few months […]

Panic Begins To Set In

THE BACKSTORY: I felt really nurtured in the hospital, very understood, very comfortable. Everything was siple and focused, I could just rest, feed the baby, eat food, and read (I was making my way through Heaven’s Queen, I believe, the Paradox series is a must read). In our new house there would be quiet, but I […]

THE BACKSTORY: It’s interesting to have people want to see you after you just gave birth to educate their students. Also, Hearthstone is fun thing to play sitting around in a hospital after surgery!

Choice Revisited

THE BACKSTORY: I wish I could have seen my damn intestines. I wasn’t exactly planning a cesarean, but I wanted to accept it as my reality with bravery and thankfulness. There is no one way to give birth, but I feel like every way you can give birth is brave. I wanted to watch them […]

Controlled Poison

THE BACKSTORY: The operating room was a surreal experience, especially once the surgery started.  “Tugging” was a bit of an understatement, there were moments were it looked like Blue’s torso was being shoved around.  Not that we could actually see much that was happening as there was a large blue tarp that covered our view […]

Nothing From The Nipples Down.

THE BACKSTORY: That last panel depicts a moment that was particularly important for Blue.  During the whole procedure. she felt very attached to this nurse, who had been incredibly comforting and grounding.  Blue mentions in memory that, as she was receiving her epidural, the nurse held her in a way that was incredibly intimate and […]
