On March 23 2023, my mothers Arndís Sveina Jósefsdóttir birthday, my book Pearl Mother - a Woman without Children, is released.
In Pearl Mother, I share my journey with infertility, & what has helped me overcome the grief and find peace. I share yoga-exercises, breathing techniques & relaxation, & how connecting with Mother Earth & the Divine Feminine has helped me find comfort in the child-free lifestyle.
My book is released on Amazon - and is available both in English and Icelandic.
The Cover design and the illustrations in the book are by my dear friend & artist Heather Wulfers.
The book was translated to English by Kelsey Hopkins.
It is with deep gratitude & a humble heart that I offer the Pearl Mother to the world - from the bottom of my heart.
"Mother of pearl is the shell that provides space for creation. She influences her surroundings and leaves behind colour on the pearl itself.
Women without children are Pearl Mothers. We possess all the characteristics and strength of the Mother, but we do not create children. Our “children” – our pearls – appear in the form of our works of art, our labours of love, and everything we nourish and bring to life.
We Pearl Mothers offer the world our rainbows and our magic. We nourish, give life, and create — just not in the form of a baby."
