Abstract
When Meaghan O'Connell got accidentally pregnant in her twenties and decided to keep the baby, she realized that the book she needed -- a brutally honest, agenda-free reckoning with the emotional and existential impact of motherhood -- didn't exist. So she decided to write it herself.
And Now We Have Everything is O'Connell's exploration of the cataclysmic, impossible-to-prepare-for experience of becoming a mother. With her dark humor and hair-trigger B.S. detector, O'Connell addresses the pervasive imposter syndrome that comes with unplanned pregnancy, the fantasies of a "natural" birth experience that erode maternal self-esteem, post-partum body and sex issues, and the fascinating strangeness of stepping into a new, not-yet-comfortable identity.
Channeling fears and anxieties that are still taboo and often unspoken, And Now We Have Everything is an unflinchingly frank, funny, and visceral motherhood story for our times, about having a baby and staying, for better or worse, exactly yourself.

Abstract
La nouvelle maternité donne la parole à des experts afin de mettre en lumière de nouvelles pratiques de maternages en liant différents regards et opinions. Dans notre société, de nombreux parents décident de vivre la grossesse, d'avoir leur enfant et de l'élever en suivant des principes et avec des pratiques dites traditionnelles. D'autres, au contraire, font le choix d'élever leur petit autrement, de façon plus alternative. Projet de naissance, allaitement de longue durée, co-dodo, peau à peau, portage, autant de pratiques émergentes que l'on connaît moins mais qui n'en demeurent pas moins essentielles dans la recherche d'une nouvelle maternité. Dans ce livre, l'auteur, journaliste, a mené une enquête auprès de ces parents pas comme les autres, qui choisissent des pratiques de maternage dit proximal.

Abstract
Explores many aspects of the high-tech com modification of procreation: the fabulous revenues commercial fertility clinics earn from couples' desperate desire for children and the ensuing conflicts between medical ethics and the profit motive; the premiums paid for sperm and eggs from genetically desirable donors; the possible exploitation of poor, nonwhite and Third World surrogate mothers paid to gestate the spawn of wealthy Westerners; the fine line between modern adoption practices and outright baby selling; and the new entrepreneurial paradigm of maternity, in which the official "mother" simply finances the assemblage of sperm, purchased egg and hired womb and lays contractual claim to the finished infant. Spar considers most of these developments inevitable and not undesirable (they provide kids to parents who want them), but calls for government regulation to curb excesses and protect the interests of all involved. Chapter 3 contains information about surrogacy.
