The way we talk about motherhood is deeply alienating






I sat frozen in the hard, plastic lecture chair, staring at the blond nurse speaking at the front of the room. ?…And then Mum pushes the rest of the baby out,? she said, cheerfully setting down the baby doll who had been resting in her right arm.

But as a non-binary, or gender-nonconfo...
