SUMMARY

When lesbian partners decide to have a baby, they have to deal with a few things first: 1. Getting pregnant will require inviting a third party into the relationship, and 2. Only one of the women in the couple will actually get pregnant. Calla Devlin is the "other mother" the one who didn't conceive and deliver, whose maternity leave was suspect, and who's sick of people calling her "Daddy." For Devlin, "being pregnant" was often moving but also, at times, awkward and absurd. There were days when other people's comments about her status as the nonbiological mother even led her to question her relationship to her partner and their child. But Devlin's ability to find humor in people's reactions ultimately allowed her to navigate the challenges of being the other mother and come into her role as an equal mother. After all, as she discovers after the birth of her daughter, when it really comes down to it, she's just another sleep-deprived and enamored mom, like all the rest.Devlin, Calla is the author of 'Don't Call Me Daddy A Lesbian Mom on Sperm Donors, Not Being Pregnant, and the Ups and Downs of Being the Other Mother', published 2007 under ISBN 9781580051705 and ISBN 1580051707.
