Overview

Baby Love: Choosing Motherhood After a Lifetime of Ambivalence by Rebecca Walker

From the international bestselling author of Black, White, and Jewish comes a "wonderfully insightful" (Associated Press) book that's destined to become a motherhood classic. Now in trade.

Like many women her age, thirty-four-year-old Rebecca Walker was brought up to be skeptical of motherhood. As an adult she longed for a baby but feared losing her independence. In this very smart memoir, Walker explores some of the larger sociological trends of her generation while delivering her own story about the emotional and intellectual transformation that led her to motherhood.

This was a diary of her pregnancy. I expected this to be more about the ambivalence of having a baby. I spent too much money on this book. No thanks
