Thomas Beatie electrified the world in April 2008 with his
announcement that he was seven months pregnant and due to
give birth in July. The news made headlines across the
globe, but it’s only one chapter in a fascinating saga.
Labor of Love reveals Beatie’s unique life
experiences: his less-than-idyllic childhood in Hawaii, his
feelings of being a young man trapped in the body of a
woman, his fight to conceive a child, and the obstacles
surrounding the delivery. This astonishing narrative permits
an intimate look at a family that refuses to let other
people’s definitions of family deter them from creating one
on their own terms. Labor of Love is much more than
the story of a unique pregnancy and birth — it’s a beautiful
and controversial love story about going against the tide, a
powerful statement about the evolution of family and
identity in the new millennium.
