For this month’s FemTech Focus Book Club we’ll be discussing Ordinary Insanity: Fear and the Silent Crisis of Motherhood in America by Sarah Menkedick.

Sarah Menkedick draws upon extensive research, numerous interviews, and the raw particulars of her own experience with anxiety to provide a comprehensive examination of the biology, psychology, history, and societal conditions surrounding the crushing and life-limiting fear that has become the norm for so many parents. Woven into the stories of women’s lives is an examination of the factors—such as the changing structure of the maternal brain, the ethically problematic ways risk is construed during pregnancy, and the marginalization of motherhood as an identity—that explore how motherhood came to be an experience so dominated by anxiety, and how mothers might reclaim it.

IMPT: Please register for the event on eventbrite.
