About Bearing Fruit

One line or two?

With this simple question, Tyneisha Ternent begins her collection of poems charting her first pregnancy’s emotional and physical roller coaster ride.

Between the moment of realization and birth are three trimesters and their differing concerns and moods. Tyneisha asks herself if she’s good enough to be a mom, gains confidence, loses it, considers pregnancy weight, and forgiveness. Tyneisha feels stress, anxiety, discomfort, wonder, and love.

Tyneisha’s poetry is characterized by a simple seriousness and wry sense of humor- sometimes fragile, sometimes blunt and down-to-earth. Illustrated throughout in line-drawings by Ryan Ternent, Bearing Fruit speaks to mothers worldwide, encouraging them to find their own strong voices.
