  • From Tracy: A must-read to truly understand the evolution of motherhood and shared care through the lens of our unique childhood.  Of course the book goes beyond to argue that this unique need of humans to rely on others has also led to our unique capacity to understand others.  Truly eye-opening.

  • From Tracy: Not really for those who are looking for ‘how to’ books, but rather a very critical and unflinching look at the maternity care system in the USA (and elsewhere).  It can be a painful read and one that may make you angry, but it is worth it as it can help expectant moms know what they may face and how to prepare.
