About the Author

Angela Garbes is a Seattle-based writer specializing in food, bodies, women's health, and issues of racial equity and diversity. Garbes began writing for The Stranger in 2006, and became a staff writer in 2014. Her piece "The More I Learn About Breast Milk, the More Amazed I Am" is the publication's most-read piece in its twenty-four-year history, and the inspiration for this book. Garbes is an experienced public speaker, frequent radio and podcast guest, and event moderator. She grew up in a food-obsessed, immigrant Filipino household and now lives in Seattle with her husband and two children.

Reviews

"The science is sublime. I especially appreciated, oddly, learning how much we still don't know about the high-stakes path to parenthood. But what got me was Garbes' regard for mothers as people in their own right, rather than the hosts or self-sacrificing caregivers they're conditioned to be."--Seattle Times
"In spite of how long women have been giving birth, there is a lot of misinformation out there about pregnancy and motherhood. Angela Garbes seeks to get it straight in Like a Mother. She not only corrects misinformation but offers advice and support." --Bustle
"An empowering resource...Garbes shares up-to-date, well-substantiated information about women's physical and mental health, aiming to help readers reduce their anxiety and make truly informed choices."--Publishers Weekly
"You don't have to be a mother or even a woman to be fascinated by the science and physiology that Garbes writes about."--NPR's Fresh Air
"Like a Mother illustrates scientific fact with frankness and intimate detail."--New York
"Like a Mother is the evidence-based, open-minded book that U.S. pregnancy culture needs...a true feminist accomplishment that puts trust and agency back with women and parents."--Rewire.News
"Garbes examines preconceived ideas about pregnancy and the history of women's health from a critical standpoint, revealing the prejudices and politics so ingrained in our culture that they still affect the care (or lack thereof) pregnant women receive today. Like a Mother is a compelling read."--The Stranger
"Garbes unpacks reams of pregnancy advice, often absurd in its conflicting demands. Like a Mother gave me a toolkit for approaching a hoped-for future."--Claire Fallon, Huffington Post
"This is the book I wish had been available during my pregnancy and my baby's first weeks of life. Angela Garbes' voice is reassuring and relatable, and her curiosity is infectious, and her sense of humor is just what people in the trenches of early parenthood need."--Emily Gould, of Emily Books and author of Friendship and The Heart Says Whatever
