Neonatal surgery, blisters, and bliss, on the rocky road to motherhood
A memoir by Caro Feely and a prequel to Grape Expectations
“The paediatrician came back without our baby.’I’m afraid we have a problem.’
Stars bounced around my vision of the Doctor’s talking head, his voice far away like a dream. I felt like I was sinking into a void. I leant back to steady myself on the bed. We had experienced the deepest, most life affirming event the night before, the birth of our first child. Now she was being taken away. It was a moment that would take us on an intense journey and change the course of our lives.”
‘What a read! Unputdownable,’ Jeanne Wissing
