WE CONCEIVE: A Comic by Rachel Masilamani
I am pregnant now, and it is amazing to feel my body growing and changing. As the weather gets warmer, I spot the other mothers-to-be around me. I want to squint into the future, and see what kind of mother I will be, and how the people I don’t know yet (my baby, his friends, and my friends) will shape the rest of our lives together. So many of us in the United States give birth in late August and early September. Does that mean that we will find more deep, supportive friends? How much influence does my timing have over the quality and depth of my baby-to-be’s friendships?
“We Conceive” is the fourth chapter in NON PARTUM, a story which will continue in serial installments on MUTHA. Read the first chapters here and here and here. Subscribe to MUTHA to get updates on future issues.
