Full circle

Something fun: I borrowed my mom’s old copy of Suzanne Arms’ Immaculate Deception II in preparation for Suzanne’s #workingbirth episode.

Suzanne first released Immaculate Deception in 1975, and then Immaculate Deception II almost 20 years later in 1994. My mom Maureen, who used to be a Bradley Method teacher, met her at a conference that year and Suzanne inscribed the book:

 To Maureen and all the Bradley moms & dads,

With love and hope

Suzanne

11/94

I was just a little kid then. Fast forward to just over 20 years later, and here I am sitting down with Suzanne Arms for an interview, learning about the work she’s done from this 20 year old book of my mom’s. Full circle! Life is funny like that.

Also fun: seeing the names of all the women that checked out the book from my mom’s lending library over the years. Pretty neat 🙂
