Annika  Rösler, Evelyn  Höllrigl Tschaikner - Afterpains


What mothers want to talk about

In the time after giving birth, many mothers feel unpleasantly surprised. What they experienced does not match up with what they had been told concerning giving birth. Pregnancy, childbirth, and the days following are common topics – but few people are straightforward in talking about them. And because the new-born child is the main focus in all this, the new mother is soon disregarded after been given a few standard bits of wisdom.

From their own five pregnancies, Annika Rösler and Evelyn Höllrigl Tschaikner have personally experienced the whole spectrum of contradictory feelings. They have long been writing frankly and honestly about these strange experiences with the forces of nature, afterpains, and fishnet pants, and they know that millions of mothers feel just like they have felt. Their loving and comforting book with bits of humour gives women space to have their voices heard and will help them understand what really was happening to them during birth.
