Skin: A Book of Blessings for the Woman Learning to Bear Life


A companion on the pilgrimage of matrescence, Skin is a beautifully crafted book of poetry intended for the woman journeying in fertility, pregnancy, birth and early motherhood.

Containing a blessing for every week of pregnancy, for birth in all its stages and types, and the fourth trimester, it is complemented by beautiful illustrations by artist Lauren Horton and photographs by designer Rachela Nardella.

A rich, gentle and humorous voice in the midst of the sacred transition from maiden to mother.
