Painful reading

Re “One mad mamma-to-be,” Opinion, Oct. 12

Heather Havrilesky’s vitriolic Op-Ed article slamming the book “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” did not strike me as funny.

A normal, healthy pregnancy is a gift, not a “hell of gestation.” Talk to any woman (or man) who has lived with the pain of infertility. She would gladly take on the heartburn, dizzy spells and hormone-induced mood swings for the joy of a healthy fetal heartbeat.

Compared to hands-on motherhood, pregnancy is but a hormonally charged walk in the park.
