YOU’VE NO CONCEPTION: A LIFE WITHOUT BABIES
No advice, please. I feel bad enough as it is.
Like many women, Anna Schatz has wanted children of her own for a long time. And like many of those, she’s confronted with sorrowful looks, well-meant advice and self-help book ads when it doesn’t happen. What do you do if you can’t get pregnant? Where do you put all the frustration and grief?
Anna Schatz’s book tells of the humiliation of becoming a godmother and her sadness surrounded by happy expectant mothers at the gynaecologist’s office. Her book strikes exactly the tone this emotionally charged issue needs, exploring it with an honesty, openness and humour that provides an emotionally healing alternative to traditional self-help books.
