Utilising her wealth of material and experience, Raphael-Leff explores various aspects of 'the inside story' of pregnancy. She answers such questions as: What meanings does childbearing have in the internal world? How does a pregnant woman live with two people under her skin? What is the expectant partner's experience? Which dreams, fears and fantasies proliferate around pregnancy and birth?
