I did not realize I was doing this. But looking back, my goal was clear. I ate grams of protein a day. I swallowed capsules of mercury-free DHA. I gave up wheat for reasons I forget. I did not own a microwave. I never let a kernel of GMO corn touch my estrogen-laden tongue.
I spoke to my SuperBaby, welcoming it into my body so that it would feel loved and supported.
Instead, I always leaned forward, elbows propped on my spread knees like I was forever on the verge of imparting a proverb. Lastly, I prepared meticulously for an unmedicated birth.

We named her Fiona. She was four pounds, twelve ounces. This was apparently an alarming size for a newborn. Over the next twenty-four hours, every medical professional who entered my room asked the same question: Why is this baby so small? I focus on all going right… My baby is developing normally and is healthy and strong.
I took electronica chords and affirmations. And this, looking back five years later, was a good failure, the very best of my many failures to date. As a kid, I used to lie flat on my back at night and worry that the whirling ceiling fan directly over my bed would spin off and cut me.
