Knocked Up Abroad Again
“Knocked Up Abroad Again is a terrific collection of honest stories that show us that motherhood knows no borders.” – Jenn Mann, New York Times bestselling author of People I Want to Punch in the Throat
“The engaging, well-written essays collected here are valuable not only for their insights into other cultures but also for the support they offer to women dealing with pregnancy and early motherhood in countries foreign to them. This is exactly the book I was looking for when I myself was knocked up abroad.” – Suzanne Kamata, editor of Call Me Okaasan: Adventures in Multicultural Mothering
The second anthology in the Knocked Up Abroad series takes readers on an emotional, heartfelt, and humorous journey as an international group of mothers traverse the obstacles, trials, and tribulations of pregnancy, birth, and parenting around the globe. Each mother experiences the cultural differences when raising children in a country that looks, sounds, and expects completely different behaviors than the culture in which she was raised herself. From South America to Asia and many countries in between, the core values of love, heartache, loss, and growth are common for mothers everywhere.
