3d Heart in a trap

My new book!

For the last few months I’ve been working on a book proposal. I’m happy to say that it garnered a lot of interest among editors and publishing houses, and ultimately went to auction.

Guilt Trap: New Motherhood and the Natural Parenting Industry will be published next year by Dey Street Books, an imprint of Harper Collins.

From the proposal:

[I hope that] Guilt Trap will bring desperately needed comfort to millions of women and will stimulate discussions in the mainstream media and our society about the corrosive impact of the natural childbirth and breastfeeding industries on women’s wellbeing. … I will show readers who benefits from making women feel guilty about their choices, and why contemporary childbirth, breastfeeding, and attachment parenting movements are retrograde, sexist, and even dangerous – and in doing so, free women from guilt they have unnecessarily shouldered for far too long.

I’m thrilled that I’ll be working with an amazing editorial team and I can’t wait to get started.
