Career-driven and independent-minded, Lauren Slater charts her progress through the complex months leading up to, and through, motherhood. Never less than candid, she begins with the process of her decision to have a child. The cons list is long and includes 'less time for friends', 'less time for work', 'less money' and 'Prozac (I'm on it)'. The pros had only one entry: 'Learn a new kind of love.' But what will that love look like? As a psychologist herself and also one of the first people to take Prozac, Slater brings in an unusual double point of view to bear on a familiar story. Not only does she chronicle the conflicting advice surrounding the use of Prozac and other antidepressants during pregnancy, but also captures just what the experience of pregnancy is like.
