PLAN B-200: A Comic by Rachel Masilamani









As I get older, my understanding of what constitutes success and prudence has become more flexible and less dependent on prevailing wisdom.  Still, because I am not a mother, at every stage of life, I remain dependent on outside advice from the world around me—my friends, my magazines, my healthcare providers and the internet—for knowledge about pregnancy. “Plan B-200” is not strictly autobiographical, though it is rooted in real life.

“Plan B-200” begins the story in NON PARTUM, an original series on MUTHA Magazine. Read the next chapters here and here and here.
