“Jordemoder” is a very old Swedish word for midwife that means “earth/land/world mother.” Jordemoder: Poems of a Midwife traces an arc in the life of a Swedish-American mother and midwife who descends from twelve generations of farmers in Småland, Sweden.
Join jordemoder Ingrid Andersson in a conversation around poetry, pregnancy, birth and parenting as she has experienced and contemplated these in both Sweden and Midwest America, past and present. Conceived on the Swedish island of Gotland and published by Holy Cow! Press in Duluth, this intimate collection spans cultures, species and ecologies – from Ingmar Bergman to birth in a caul to backyard hens. Expect a fertile discussion!
