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 Ý 104 Elisa Albert ☆ 4 Read Free download After Birth 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. I didn t enjoy the experience of reading this after its first chapter but I m rounding up because I like Elisa Albert and think that this book is important even if because it s unpleasantAri is struggling with postpartum depression as her son turns one She is upset at length about the fact that she did not give birth to her son a C section was performed which she likens to rape post partum because it s not what she wanted although I thought you had to give consent for C sections idk I have no kids I d just think you d have to say yes cut into me doctor before they d do it She doesn t feel like her body is her own any longer talks about the heavy pain in her breasts as much as she talks about her son craves a connection to women from her isolation that sometimes becomes confused with sexual desire She remembers the terror and abuse of her own mother who died when Ari was in her teens She wants people to distinguish female bodies from male bodies rather than saying there s no difference between men and women and calling it feminismIf you ve gathered from my description of the book that it s sort of an amorphous feminist rant on specific topics in the broad cloud of motherhood corporeal and social aspects ofwell you d be right Ari is angry about a lot of things that women experience She s angry about women who make a big deal out of their weddings she s angry about friends who only exist for men and talk about their boyfriends endlessly when they get them she s angry she cannot keep hold of her female friends she s angry about the way a lot of men don t consider the ideas of women without trying to sleep with them or be mothered by themI have no problem with Ari getting upset about these things In fact I think some of these things should upset women collectively a lot What I didn t like so much was the sustained unfocused element of Ari s bitterness I am already on her side about a lot of these issues I feel the rat in a cage feeling of being a woman at some level most of the time For women and men who don t really think about these things too often perhaps this book will be of a revelation For me the experience of reading After Birth was like Ari was poking at my baseline bitterness trying to push the constant steady throb of it up to maximum anger I watched the Simon and Schuster interview with Albert linked on the Book of Dahlia page She says in it that good things don t need close examination because they re just good so that is why she deals with life s unpleasantries in her work And she s right That s why I like to read books about mean people or people who ve done amoral things because often the cheaters the criminals and the garden variety assholes have going on than just what s happening on the surface I guess what frustrates me about After Birth is that I think that as far as under the surface of the problem goes casual misogyny and women s complicity are so enormously accepted and affect all of us and will continue to affect all of us even after this book s publication because changing centuries of the status uo reuires so many people to be conscious of what they do and alter their thought and that just is not going to happen in my lifetime I think sexism could be gradually faded out with the generations as we raise and socially conscious girls and boys But as for now I just try to point out sexism whether subtle or overt when I see it and give my support to causes that promote women s agency Those are things that I can do Beyond them I feel powerless because I cannot actually change anyone s mind just by bringing something to their attentionSo ultimately what After Birth does for me is in small part reminds me of things that I know to be true and in large part sucks me back in to the vortex of depression I m about to start reading romance novels as part of a personal effort to see if I can find one genre romance that I like at all and I know that I ll probably encounter some straight sexist bullshit along the way but dammit at least those books will be about people finding things to like and love about each other and that s hopeful Meaning than just TA PLEASE GOD LET IT BE MORE THAN TA

After Birth Read Ý 104 Elisa Albert ☆ 4 Read Free download After Birth 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. So many other Goodreads reviews of this book are basically this character is not likeable or she needs to get over her c section and pay attention to her husband and child and too many swear words I feel like I m reading the bitchy comment section of a Huffington Post article on parenthood It basically turns this Goodreads page into an ongoing slow motion car crash piece of performance art in which the book s critiues of societymotherhoodattitudes towards birth are literalized by unwitting reviewers AFTER BIRTH is maybe the first book I ve ever read that has really truly captured the claustrophobia bliss obsession fear and loss of self that accompanies new motherhood
