Publisher's Synopsis

What is it like to have a baby in climate crisis? This book explores the experiences of pregnant women and their partners, pre- and post-birth, during the catastrophic Australian bushfire season of 2019-20 and the subsequent COVID-19 pandemic. Engaging a range of concepts, including the Pyrocene, breath, care and embodiment, the authors explore how climate crisis is changing experiences of having children. They also raise questions about how gender and sexuality are shaped by histories of human engagements with fire. This interdisciplinary analysis brings feminist and queer questions about reproduction and kin into debates on contemporary planetary crises.
