Inhaltsangabe: From time immemorial, younger women have been asking older women, "What is it like to have a baby?" Here at last is a book that brings together the reactions of a wide array of women--some rich, some poor, some famous, some not-so-famous--to the experience of childbirth. Ranging from Sophia Loren to Queen Victoria, from Colette to Elzire Dionne, it explains in human terms as no clinical description can what the experience of having a baby is really like.
A universal process that is unique in each instance, birth is inherently dramatic and changes even people who never expected to be deeply affected. Indeed, some of the most revealing pieces in Ever Since Eve are the testimony of men about fatherhood, men as diverse as Napoleon and W.C. Fields.
A fascinating collection of vignettes, Ever Since Eve examines childbirth in different parts of the globe, offers some intriguing footnotes to history, and presents a view of public figures in their most private moments. Compelling reading for every pregnant woman, this book will be a treasured keepsake for anyone who has ever had--or would like to have--a baby.
