About the Book:

"In Birth of a Daughter, Samantha Kolber deftly reveals the private world of pregnancy and birth-the middle of the night and light of day worries about safety, connection, and intimacy, weighing what shifts, writing, 'I am marked. I am one becoming two, becoming one / body deceives me.' Indeed, these poems are brave in their accounting of the pregnant, birthing body, the realities of mothering, and the territory we enter—oh, these worlds we are now / you and I.' Dailiness and milestones merge here, bringing us on a journey that is part emotional travelogue, part wonder, part weighing of generations and of our times, and part arrival at the precise awareness that, 'I am witness. I am mother.' Kolber's voice is an important one, honoring what is often kept hidden."  —Kerrin McCadden, author of Keep This to Yourself
