5.0 out of 5 stars An authentic birth story
By Mayavie on 24 February 2021
Last week’s episode of This is Us had more than one birth story and all the filmy emotions that are usually associated with such scenes ran high. And I thought to myself, that was not my experience at all. And then I read Zikora and it was as authentic to my own experience of giving birth as possible.

“Now here he was wrapped like a tidy sausage roll and placed on my chest. He was warm and so very small. I held him with stiff hands. I was suspended in a place of no feeling, waiting to feel. I could not separate this moment from the stories of this moment—years of stories and films and books about this scene, mother and child, mother meeting child, child in mother’s arms. I knew how I was supposed to feel, but I did not know how I felt. It was not transcendental. There was a festering red pain between my legs. Somewhere in my consciousness, a mild triumph hovered, because it was over, finally it was over, and I had pushed out the baby.”

Zikora is the prophesy of all our mothers storified.. that we will understand our mothers when we ourselves become mothers.

My first Adichie, I found this short story on kindle unlimited and am in love with the way she writes.
