Past Due did not disappoint.

Past Due did not disappoint. The writing was first-rate, although the subject matter could be - and often was - absolutely heartrending. Finger's pipe dream of natural childbirth at home with a midwife attending went up in scary smoke, ending in a complicated and emergency hospital Caesarian delivery. Anne Finger has much to say in this slight volume, and not just about the difficulties of a disabled woman giving birth, but about our society's attitudes toward the disabled, the helpless and the disenfranchised. This is important stuff, a book which should probably be read by all of those pro-choice and pro-life adherents - both camps.

The story of her pregnancy and birth was riveting and held my interest, keeping me turning pages even though I had read the story before. It is sad that her extreme protectiveness about the baby, refusing to eat many types of foods and avoiding fetal monitors until the late stages of her pregnancy, came to not prevent the problems she and her baby had. Her choice for a home birth was disastrous and I was surprised she doesn't hold anything against the people who took care of he. .Jan 01, 2013 Danielle rated it really liked it.

I bought this book out of curiosity after reading Finger's newer book, Elegy for a Disease, about her struggles with childhood polio and abuse in a disfunctional family. Her writing was good enough that I wanted more. Past Due did not disappoint. The writing was first-rate, although the subject matter could be - and often was - absolutely heartrending. Finger's pipe dream of natural childbirth at home with a midwife attending went up in scary smoke, ending in a complicated and emergency hospital Caesarian delivery. For months Finger didn't know if her son had suffered brain damage, and lived through a nightmare of special meds and equipment and midnight ER visits. There are scenes of intervention in the neo-natal ICU which will bring tears to your eyes. Here's one, where they couldn't get an iv line into the baby's arm, so attempted to put in into his head:

"'I'm going to to put a rubber band around his head,' the doctor says. 'It'll make his veins stand out.' ... The doctor taps her finger agains his flesh until a vein appears; she shaves a patch of his scalp; the needle goes in, but not into the vein, and she probes, pulling the needle in and out, in and out, in and out, while he wails in pain. He stares into my eyes and I cry with him ... 'Oh, Max,' I say, 'I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm so sorry.'..."

Anne Finger has much to say in this slight volume, and not just about the difficulties of a disabled woman giving birth, but about our society's attitudes toward the disabled, the helpless and the disenfranchised. This is important stuff, a book which should probably be read by all of those pro-choice and pro-life adherents - both camps. Too bad it's out of print and largely inaccessible now. I'm glad I took the time to read it. - Tim Bazzett, author of Love, War & Polio

This book gives a very intimate look into Anne Finger's life and the struggle between feminism, disability rights, and parenthood. Finger struggles with women's right to choose v. prenatal testing and the disproportionate impact on fetuses that may have disabilities. She also struggles with disability pride, but upon becoming a parent, finding herself hoping for a healthy child. The struggles are difficult, but Finger does not hold back. As a woman with a disability and a disability rights activist, I appreciated her honesty throughout the book.

I love Anne Finger's writing, but I wasn't sure what I would think of this book because a book about pregnancy did not seem like it was my thing, but once again--Anne Finger's writing is so present and honest-feeling. Some of this story is very hard and she never shies from the complexities that make her writing so riveting!

I'm glad I didn't pass this one up! Also, Anne Finger's informed disability perspective is refreshing as always!
