Summary

Jodie is bored with her life, despite a steady job and a loving partner, life is somehow unfulfilling. Her greatest wish is to have her own daughter, but her partner Sal isn't ready yet. Sal is working hard as a landscape gardener and starting her own nursery business, and there simply isn't the perfect time to have a daughter. Until one day the penny drops and Sal just knows it's right. Overjoyed they attend a fertility specialist, but in the Earth of three hundred years into the future where there are no men, getting pregnant is a complicated matter. They eventually agree on a stimulated stem cell procedure, and the implantation and pregnancy proceed successfully. Jodie and Sal enjoy all the ups and downs of the early stages of the pregnancy until Jodie has a routine midterm scan. What they find tears at their relationship and threatens their pregnancy and the very basis of their whole society
