LITHOPAEDION is a poetry collection both visceral and tender. Named after a greek term meaning "stone baby," a lithopaedion is the result of an extremely rare condition in which the fetus of a failed ectopic or abdominal pregnancy cannot be reabsorbed by its mother's body; its tissues become calcified to prevent infection, sepsis, or death.
