Women’s bodies are routinely scrutinized, policed, touched without their consent and decided upon without their having a say in it. Don’t worry, it gets worse: being pregnant does not really change that; in fact, strangers might feel motivated to touch your belly or force you to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term. All we have is chocolate, ladies.
Are you afraid of pregnancy? You’re not alone. Grab your chocolate as Beatrice, Elizabeth, and Heather talk about tokophobia and fear of pregnancy, childbirth, healthcare, and death.
In this Mother’s Day episode, Heather explains pregnancy while Beth, Beatrice, and Liz realise that they need inhalers to get through the episode. Grab your chocolate and your Feminist rage and learn about as much as we could stomach about the pregnant female body. We’re sorry for everything we put our mothers through, and we thank them for going through the torture that led to our birth.
