My Home Birth: A Graphic Graphic Memoir by Christen Clifford & David Heatley

May 8th, 2009 by Larry Smith

We’re thrilled to direct Next-Door Neighbor lovers to another SMITH story told in comic form, this one about another near-universal topic: birth. Christen Clifford, whose words have appeared on SMITH before, as well as on stage and in many other publications, met cartoonist David Heatley on the playground, as creative New York parents are wont to do. Now Heatley, author of the graphic novel, My Brain is Hanging Upside Down, brings to vivid life Clifford’s story of her homebirth. SMITH is pleased to present My Home Birth by Christen Clifford & David Heatley.

    “First to go would be Apple, assuming I would get an Android phone (see below). I’m not invested at all in iTunes or other Apple services. The only link I have is through the iPhone. Then Facebook goes. For me, it’s mostly work-related rather than part of my personal life. Then it gets tougher. I would have to pry the URL away from my wife’s clawing fingers, but I mostly use it for Amazon Prime video rather than shopping per se. I’d also have to give up my Kindle and Echo, which would hurt. But I think I’d rather do that than forgo Google search, maps, email, etc., etc. Unless … I switched fully over to the Microsoft/Bing/realm. For what it’s worth, if they added Microsoft to the list, I would definitely have to throw Google out the Windows.”

    The is a current example of a big one. You couldn’t talk about the show’s flaws on r/netflixwitcher because most of the people there didn’t care about feedback and were too caught up in the honeymoon phase to even want to hear it.


    I’m tired of for iOS not showing alerts and badge changes consistently, among other things.


    I’ve looked for hours (in help centres and on the web) to find a way to get in touch, but there’s just no way.


    I’ve been sending out business for about three months, and in the first two weeks, I got a lot more replies than I did after that.


    Because a strange app was found on a Windows device, all of the devices that were signed in to my account were signed out. But my computer wasn’t even on when the strange things were going on.
