Kid Gloves: On Loss, Art, and Healing—an Excerpt

Excerpted from Kid Gloves: Nine Months of Careful Chaos

Lucy says:

“I wanted to be a midwife when I was a kid, and drawing/writing this book has been the next best thing. I’m so happy to have it in the hands of readers, parents or non-parents, and so glad comics and reproductive health can go hand in hand.”
