Vogue writer Antonella Gambotto-Burke spent her pregnancy wondering whether she had it in her to love her child as deeply as she did sparkly Prada mules. And then she heard her daughter's cry. On first hearing that little voice, the impact on her soul was that of the highest magnitude of earthquake, those that occur every hundred years, say, or every thousand. The old shell she called herself cracked and was swallowed by a sudden crevasse, forever lost in the commotion. Wild with love, Antonella became an attachment parent. She couldnt stop writing about her baby, and kept writing, even when her marriage threatened to shatter under the weight of sickness, bereavement, family pressure and the Global Financial Crisis. And then she began to interview leading childcare experts - among them, Sheila Kitzinger, Laura Markham, Steve Biddulph, and Gabor Mat+¬, seeking how to better navigate motherhood in this era of disconnection. What she learned will change your life.
