It has been a long time coming now, but it turns out the process of publishing, especially a peer-reviewed anthology from an academic press is a bit of an involved process. I am so grateful to A.J., my co-editor, without whom I couldn’t have done this. It has been such a privilege to work with all the authors involved as they crafted their contributions to this important collection. The content is a mix of academic chapters and autobiographical prose and poetry. It speaks to pregnancy, parenting and fertility with an attention to look for the parts of those conversations we often miss- like intersex perspectives on how infant genital surgery impacts reproductive justice, trans feminine longing for motherhood, decolonizing takes on menstruation and it’s gendered expectations, family creation from the view of an anonymous egg donor, trans inclusion in abortion legislation, and more.
