Naomi R Wolf born 1962 is an author and journalist who has written books such as The Beauty Myth Promiscuities The Secret Struggle for Womanhood Fire with Fire The New Female Power and How It Will Change the 21st Century The Treehouse Eccentric Wisdom from My Father on How to Live Love and See etc NOTE page numbers below refer to the 340 page paperback editionShe wrote in the Introduction to this 2001 book This book will explore the hidden truths behind giving birth in America today By looking at how a number of women including myself experienced the journey to first time motherhood I intend to show how the experience of becoming a mother as miraculous and fulfilling as it is is also undersupported sentimentalized and even manipulated at women s expense Pg 1 2 She continues Books classes and videos freuently have hidden agendas Many of them omit aspects of the birth experience or withhold information to advance their cause to women s detriment Little that women are exposed to in pregnancy adeuately prepares them for the first three trimesters and delivery or offers them a grounding in the gut wrenching changes of the sometimes savagely difficult adjustment that follows birth Pg 3She adds I believe the myth about the ease and naturalness of mothering is propped up polished and promoted as a way to keep women from thinking clearly and negotiating forcefully about what they need from their partners and from society at large in order to mother well without having to sacrifice themselves in the process Pg 7 She concludes the Introduction This book delineates some of the drastic absurd and sometimes painful changes women go through in the transition to new motherhood but it is still a book about love IT is far from an idealized impossible love It is a tough slog I wrote this book to explore the genuine miracle not the Hallmark card to trace the maternal bond as it forms in spite of the obtuse and unnatural ideology of motherhood under which we labor I wrote this book in the hope that we realize that truly becoming a mother is also a miraculous achievement of the will as well as of the heart Pg 9 10In a controversial passage she recalls When I was three and a half months pregnant I was interviewed by a conservative commentator A subject he raised in passing was abortion Is that not a baby he asked pointing at my belly in a cheap but I suppose un pass uppable shot Of course it s a baby I answered And if God forbid I was not able to care for it or feed it or raise it if I had to face the terrible decision to end the pregnancy that decision would be between my conscience and God Pg 31She admits Being a pro choice woman pregnant in a country in which almost a uarter of all pregnancies end in abortion presented a conundrum so uncomfortable I could hardly stand to think about it It was as the pro choice slogan asserted my body But did I own this baby the way I owned my possessions my hair and my fingernails Pg 33She observes I thought about the white couples who would rather adopt a light skinned baby from a faraway mountain village than a dark skinned child from a neighborhood in our own city and of the motivation on the part of such prospective parents Did they hope for racial neutrality for their family in a country torn apart by race Pg 53She acknowledges I did in fact experience moments of epiphany These were brighter moments of that sense of interconnection with all women Pg 102 She continued Babies I speculated in that peculiar mystical state are sort of leaky little understudies for God With each baby the human species gets the chance to break out of the self into the service of something so other that the reasons for conditional love can give way to faith in unconditional love with babies we get the chance to take one manageable baby step on the long hard path of the saints Though I am Jewish when I was pregnant I could suddenly see the good sense of worshipping God in the guise of a human baby Pg 105 106She laments I along with other ambitious women of my generation felt myself gradually becoming one of those women with whom I had always refused to identify My self sufficiency and independence two ualities I admired most in others shut down in me like the lights of a business that had lost its clientele As new mothers our feminism was undergoing a kind of triage It was fascinating to see a group of women who believed fervently in women s euality unconsciously revert to some of the basic tenets of a patriarchy they had all their lives rebelled against for love I was still a feminist But I understood at this point of my life that it could be dangerous to be one Pg 123 124She says All around me it seemed that the baby s birth was cleaving couple after couple once euals in roles and expectations along the lines of the old traditional gender roles That was certain what I experienced when my husband went back to work and I found myself with a tiny baby staring out the kitchen window into the backyards of the suburbs living life much as I had read about it in The Feminine Mystiue The baby s arrival wrenched open the shiny patina of egalitarianism in the marriages of virtually every couple I knew Pg 225 226 She adds The woman was no longer willing to take risks that involved the baby that she would have been willing to take when it was her life alone that was at stake Pg 227She notes I was loving the moment and my baby with all my heart I did indeed melt with joy in her Yet in that joy was exhaustion and frustration too about the life I found I was living that I had both chosen and not chosen This scene was not what I had wanted What I had wanted was a revolution Pg 256She outlines A Mother s Manifesto We deserve real flextime that lets us and the fathers of our babies easily cycle in and out of the workplace We need real Family Leave We need on site day care We need tax deductions and benefits We need to overhaul the birthing industry How do we accomplish all this With a new push of Motherhood Feminism a mothers movement that will pressure the government and employers efficiently Pg 283 284This was a fascinating thought provoking yet also highly personal book It will interest a wide variety of readers feminists particularly those with children mothers mothers to be and those interested in social issues affecting modern women
