"Birthing a Mother is brilliant and beautifully written. It showcases Teman's great skills as an ethnographer and her sophisticated analytic mind. She portrays all her subjects with empathy and compassion, whether surrogates, intended parents, or professionals otherwise involved in the reproductive procedures she documents."—Charis Thompson, author of Making Parents

"Teman deftly portrays surrogacy as a joint project through which one woman assists another, through sacrifice and instruction, to become also a mother."—Heather Paxson, author of Making Modern Mothers: Ethics and Family Planning in Urban Greece
