The first book to propose a philosophy of miscarriage exploring the meaning of pregnancy without birth and linking theory to real, lived experience.
By exploring common themes within personal accounts of miscarriage including feelings of failure, self-blame and being stuck in limbo. Pregnancy Without Birth critically interrogates teleological discourses and disciplinary ideologies that elevate birth as pregnancy’s natural and normal endpoint.
