Description

A brutally honest, and at times pee your pants funny, tale about one woman's journey through motherhood with a condition that affects approximately half of all females, pelvic organ prolapse. This moving memoir is one woman's inspirational story about the traumatic birth of her first child and subsequent diagnosis of the chronic condition, pelvic organ prolapse. Wrapped within an engaging account of living with prolapse is an insightful glimpse into what it means to be a mother battling chronic pain, embarrassing side effects and depression in a society that often idealizes motherhood as a time of bliss and joy and dismisses this embarrassing and often debilitating condition. Inspiration for her healing comes from the most unlikely of places, the heart-wrenching struggles of women in the developing world. A startlingly honest, elegant, and often humorous depiction of life with pelvic organ prolapse, And Then My Uterus Fell Out, calls out to all women around the world who suffer in silence with a life-affirming message of dignity, hope and sisterhood.
