Sometimes with a zine, the cover pretty much says what it’s all about. 🙂

Pregnancy and motherhood are two subjects that I know very little about, so I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy this zine. Lo and behold, even though it was outside my sphere of experience, I found it quite interesting. A labour story, thoughts on motherhood… This is obviously not going to be everyone’s cup of tea.

It is what it is – and, for what it is, it’s good.

Amanda did lose me toward the end with the ‘Teen Mom’ reality show thoughts. (I don’t watch reality TV.) But disinterest in one section didn’t stop me from finishing the lot.

This is the first zine I’ve read in a while that really gets into the ‘cut and paste’. I try to keep a ‘you do you’ attitude toward aesthetics, but I have a growing fondness for all those bits and pieces. There are pictures, stickers, pretty papers… Very nice.

There’s also page numbers, a table of contents, and a clear contact page. There’s also a resource page with Amanda’s favourite links in the back. Talk about hitting all the right boxes on the Nyx list.

If you’re interested in the subject, then you’ll like the zine. Check it out.
