    review After Birth Elisa Albert ✓ 3 review KINDLE [After Birth] 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

After Birth

After Birth review Ö 3 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. This woman is THE WORST I was excited to read this book because it s marketed as a feminist tale of post partum depression which I really struggled with but this woman is so anti feminist it s not even funny She hates on every single woman she encounters She s that militant AP mom who hates on mothers who formula feed and accept their c sections she s classist as hell and portrays herself as the victim of a poor woman calling out her privilege she hates on women who have mainstream tastes and want traditional weddings and of course has no friends Until she meets the gal who compares a medically necessary c section to rape And of course she stole her older husband from a woman his age I kept waiting for her to be shown to be an unreliable narrator but nope Every awful cliche of the rich NYC hipster bitch

review After Birth

After Birth review Ö 3 S and another impending winter in upstate New York Ari is a tree without roots struggling to keep her branches aloftWhen Mina a one time cult musician older self contained alone and nine months pregnant moves to town Ari sees the possibility of a new friend despite her unfortunate habit of generally mistrusting women Soon they become comrades in arms and the previously ho. 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

summary Õ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Elisa Albert

After Birth review Ö 3 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. If you find the idea of an entire novel featuring a woman agonizing over the subject of pregnancy and childbirth while utilizing language consisting largely of four letter words appealing then by all means pick up a copy of AFTER BIRTH by Elisa Albert If however you demand your reading matter contain 1 a plot line that is substantial than a woman boo hooing over her life as a mother and smoking weed as a coping mechanism and 2 language that is descriptive but does not rely on repeated expletives to get the point across I recommend you give this book a passMost of us who have experienced childbirth and motherhood know that the experience can be trying at times but Ari the chief protagonist in this novel paints a picture so demoralizing it could effectively serve as a replacement for condoms the morning after pill and various other forms of birth control in regulating population growthAri comes across as an angry woman who has mentally and emotionally exiled herself from the world of productive human beings to that of someone throwing herself a pity party because she became a motherPerhaps my sympathy gene has been removedORit could be that my memory has failed me but I managed to have three children survived the loss of my spouse when the kids were still adolescents held down a responsible full time job and can t recall ever spending hours musing over my lot in life Maybe I just never had the timeIf you value your time spend it on something enlightening than AFTER BIRTH
