My Book

The day my world fell apart
My journey of putting it back together
Poems for Mothers postpartum

This collection of real, raw, and unflinchingly honest poetry chronicles both the disruption of a singular identity and the disruption of motherhood that one woman experienced the moment her daughter was born and her life fell apart.

It’s like I was splayed open and seen for all the versions I’ve been, am, have yet to be, and tried to hid, both in and outside of ‘Mom’.

~ Serena Dorman, Author of M*MMY CUSSES and MOTHERHOOD IS F*CKING SCARY
