PRODUCT INFORMATION

Description

A deeply moving tragicomic graphic memoir about a single woman's efforts to conceive in her forties. A few months after Myriam Steinberg turned forty, she decided she couldn't wait any longer to become a mother. She made the difficult decision to begin the process of conceiving a child without a partner. With her family and friends to support her, she picked a sperm donor and was on her way. But Myriam's journey was far from straightforward. She experienced the soaring highs and devastating lows of becoming pregnant and then losing her babies. She grappled with the best decision to make when choosing donors or opting for a medical procedure. She experienced first-hand the silences, loneliness, and taboos that come with experiences of fetal loss. Unafraid to publicize her experiences, though, she found that, in return, friends and strangers alike started sharing their own fertility stories with her. Although the lack of understanding and language around fetal loss and grief often made it very hard to navigate everyday life, she nonetheless found solace in the community around her who rallied to support her through her journey. Through it all, Myriam remained hopeful and here she unflinchingly shares her story with wry humour, honesty, and courage. Beautifully illustrated by Christache Ross, Catalogue Baby is one woman's story of tragedy and beating the odds, and is a resource for all women and couples who are trying to conceive. Catalogue Baby is a compassionate portrait of fertility and infertility that hasn't been seen before.

Critic Reviews

“This book is a true gift to anyone on a journey to parenthood through IVF/IUI. It is an experience most can't truly grasp unless they've been through it themselves, but seeing it through Myriam's eyes gives us a beautiful and raw glimpse of the reality of the ups and downs and relentless grief that rings true for so many. It will speak to so many still trying and in the midst of this painful journey. Myriam shows how much support we need along the way and how it's healthy to feel frustration, jealousy and hope all at once. Catalogue Baby helps normalize the conversation around infertility and the stigma attached to this topic. - Chiemi Rajamahendran , Founder, Miss.Conception Coach”
