Sample Book Insights:
#1 I was on duty as a watcher, supervising the fates of fourteen heavily pregnant ewes. The ewes were herd animals, and their offspring usually joined a large, confusing crowd of hundreds soon after being born.
#2 The sheep farm has transformed into a baby blizzard. The ewes are much thinner and less bloated, and their personalities have changed. They are now cranky and prefer to stand alone rather than side by side.
#3 The maternal instinct is a real thing, and it is up to each mother to find it and nurture it. It is a top-down process, with pregnancy and childbirth hormones changing not only our bodies but also our minds.
#4 I had never imagined being a mother, and I had little motherly intuition. I was a battle-tested matron who was bereft of both motherly wisdom and trendy tips pertaining to childbirth and children. I had to learn how to go to sleep, eat, and ride a bike with my kids.
