About the author

Aimant autant illustrer qu'écrire des histoires, Nadja est l'auteur de plus d'une soixantaine d'albums, tour à tour drôles et émouvants, dont le célèbre Chien bleu. Elle prête aujourd'hui sa plume et son univers poétique à la collection Minimiki.

Illustratrice, Julie Camel travaille pour l'édition et crée aussi des cartes postales. Sa formation de styliste lui permet d'imaginer de jolis habits et des doudous, aussi bien sur le papier qu'en vrai, car elle aime leur donner vie en les cousant, pour le plus grand bonheur de ses enfants. Ses personnages sont à son image : tout en douceur.

Nadja Spiegelman
A Vogue Best Book of the Year

"What Ferrante did for female friends—exploring the tumult and complexity their relationships could hold—Spiegelman sets out to do for mothers and daughters. She’s essentially written My Brilliant Mom." —Slate 

A memoir of mothers and daughters—and mothers as daughters—traced through four generations, from Paris to New York and back again.  

For a long time, Nadja Spiegelman believed her mother was a fairy. More than her famous father, Maus creator Art Spiegelman, and even more than most mothers, hers—French-born New Yorker art director Françoise Mouly—exerted a force over reality that was both dazzling and daunting. As Nadja’s body changed and “began to whisper to the adults around me in a language I did not understand,” their relationship grew tense. Unwittingly, they were replaying a drama from her mother’s past, a drama Nadja sensed but had never been told. Then, after college, her mother suddenly opened up to her. Françoise recounted her turbulent adolescence caught between a volatile mother and a playboy father, one of the first plastic surgeons in France. The weight of the difficult stories she told her daughter shifted the balance between them. 
                It had taken an ocean to allow Françoise the distance to become her own person. At about the same age, Nadja made the journey in reverse, moving to Paris determined to get to know the woman her mother had fled.  Her grandmother’s memories contradicted her mother’s at nearly every turn, but beneath them lay a difficult history of her own. Nadja emerged with a deeper understanding of how each generation reshapes the past in order to forge ahead, their narratives both weapon and defense, eternally in conflict. Every reader will recognize herself and her family in I'm Supposed to Protect You From All This, a gorgeous and heartbreaking memoir that helps us to see why sometimes those who love us best hurt us most.

This book provides an overview of fetal psychobiological research, focusing on brain and behavior, genetic and epigenetic factors affecting both short and long-term development, and technological breakthroughs in the field. These focal points intersect throughout the chapters, as in the challenges of evaluating the fetal central nervous system, the myriad impacts of maternal stressors and resiliencies, and the salience of animal studies. It also discusses specific monitoring and assessment methods, including cardiotocography, biomagnetometry, 4D ultrasound, in utero MRI, and the KANET test. Spanning assessment, identification, and pre- and postnatal intervention, the book weighs the merits of standardized evaluations and argues for more integrative research in the future.

Included in the coverage:

Effects on the fetus of maternal anxiety, depression, and stress during pregnancy.Clinical and experimental research in human fetuses and animal models. Observational research including the use of behaviors in developing tests to assess fetal health.Fetal auditory processing and implications for language development.Fetal effects of prenatal exposure to selective SRI antidepressant exposure.Structural and functional imaging of the prenatal brain.The effects of alcohol exposure on fetal development.

Fetal Development: Research on Brain and Behavior, Environmental Influences, and Emerging Technologies is an essential resource for researchers, clinicians and related professionals, as well as students in a wide range of fields such as developmental psychology, pediatric and obstetrical medicine, neuroscience, nursing, social work, and early childhood education.
