Breaking the mould from the usual books on motherhood, Kalki Koechlin’s illustrated title is an honest, compassionate work where the actress gets candid about the experiences she had during her pregnancy. From addressing the unexpected physical discomforts that the body goes through to the emotional rollercoaster and psychological changes that one has to cope with, this book discusses oft-overlooked issues revolving around being a new mother. With charming illustrations by Valeriya Polyanychko, the book also spotlights some of the social stigmas associated with pregnancy, a woman’s choice, postpartum gloom, and other such silent aspects of motherhood.
Published by Penguin Books, this graphic narrative combines essays, anecdotes and journal entries to reflect on the feelings and experiences that come with pregnancy. Interwoven with moments that tickle the funny bone, the book is written in a voice that is comfortingly intimate — as it extends a reassuring hand to new mothers wading through the uncharted waters of parenthood.
