I Don't Know How To Give Birth! by Ayami Kazama

A Full Review

(Keeping it short and sweet with this one!)

I Don't Know How to Give Birth manga cover by Ayami Kazama

Serialized on Comic Essay Gekijou in 2016, I Don't Know How To Give Birth! (Shussan no Shikata ga Wakaranai!) by Ayami Kazama is a one-shot autobiography about the mangaka's fertility struggles, pregnancy, birth, and early postpartum. Additionally, each chapter includes one-page asides from her mangaka husband Azure Konno. It's funny, lighthearted, and entertaining. The story ends on a happy note—mom, baby, and dad are all okay.

If you're looking for manga about motherhood, I'd recommend this book. Also, if you enjoy autobiographies, you might want to check this one out.

Just as I thought and expected, it's a nice short manga, but it's not something I'm going to revisit too often. So, it's not fit for my collection, but maybe it will be suited for yours! At any rate, I highly recommend reading it!

Yen Press released this manga in August 2020. Check it out here.

(Happy Mother's Day, & Happy Reading!)
