I read Like A Mother a few months ago, and here's what's stuck with me:
Pregnancy is an unnecessary enigma.
There is little cultural discourse about the science and realities of being pregnant, and this trickles out into products marketed for pregnant people.
There are plenty of guides saying what pregnant folks can and can't eat, and it feels dishonest to play into that guilt trip.
I have never been pregnant, and will not pretend to understand its complexity. I do, however, hold an immense amount of respect and love for those who become pregnant. I want Drunk Shrub to be a part of the process, and to serve as a reminder that pregnancy isn't solely about the potential child - it's a testament to the ferocity our bodies have to create family and community. I've heard from friends that Sharp Love cured their pregnancy-induced heartburn. I've heard that the sampler pack is a great gift for parents-to-be (or friends who are experiencing the grief of a lost pregnancy). I recommend it to parents who want to model no-proof socializing for their progeny.
