Following the "Virago Book of Wicked Verse", this is a collection of poems on every aspect of pregnancy and birth, from Anne Sexton, Laurie Lee, Louise Gluck, Robert Lowell, Seamus Heaney and May Sarton. In the 1960s, Anne Sexton broke the taboo of writing about pregnancy and childbirth with her poem "In Celebration of My Uterus". Since then women have written poems with a complexity of responses to birth - about their hopes, dreams and fears of pregnancy and men have also written about the experience from which they are biologically excluded. This book is a celebration of all of these voices.
