Every year, millions of women have their lives turned inside out by the experience of pregnancy. A contemporary woman find herself caught in an absurd paradox: while in the grip of one of the most primal, lonely, sensual and, in some ways, psychologically debilitating and physically dangerous experiences, she is overwhelmed by invasive, trivialising and infantilising cultural messages about what is happening to her - and who really owns the experience.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Wolf's many bold demands... give us pause and present challenges: society should restructure itself to accommodate babies" * Guardian *
"Wolf's polemic is as clear and sure as ever" * Observer *
"Misconceptions reminds us that pregnancy and birth are still swaddled in layers of illusion, that our society remains criminally hypocritical toward mothers... Naomi Wolf goes much deeper here than she ever has before. She strips bare the mind of the pregnant woman and new mother with dazzling courage" -- Erica Jong
"Fiercely confident and uncompromising" * Publishers Weekly *
