Eden M. Kennedy

mission accomplished, pal

Eden M. Kennedy is the co-author (with Alice Bradley) of the book Let's Panic About Babies! (St. Martin's Press).

A former college-radio DJ, Mrs. Kennedy has driven cross-country six times in a 1973 Volkswagen Bug and enjoys standing on her head.

Currently she works a straight job and is just about finished writing her first novel.

Alice and I made some videos for Café Mom where we talked about pregnancy and childbirth. We interviewed experts, pretended to be in labor, learned how to swaddle a doll, and walked around Brooklyn accosting women and small children in the street. Why did they ask us to host this series? Because we wrote the greatest fake book about pregnancy and childbirth the world has ever known.

All the videos are here, there are twelve of them, and they're each around five minutes long. Shooting them was was fun! Thanks to the miracle of Febreeze, I wore the same shirt for five days straight!
