Monica Dux - Pregnancy Pressure

From Sunday Morning, 10:25 am on 6 April 2014

Monica Dux has written about the tough physical and emotional aspects of pregnancy and childbirth, the embarrassing stuff we prefer to gloss over. She argues that women struggle to live up to society's expectations of the perfect pregnant woman, who is effortlessly glamorous, and in charge of her life. Things I Didn't Expect (When I Was Expecting), is published by Melbourne University Press.
