Meet Silicon Valley executive Tessa Callahan, a woman passionate about the power of technology to transform women's lives. Her company's latest invention, the Seahorse Solution, includes a breakthrough procedure that safely accelerates human pregnancy from nine months to nine weeks, along with other major upgrades to a woman's experience of early maternity. The inaugural human trial of Seahorse will change the future of motherhood and it's Tessa's job to monitor the first volunteer mothers-to-be. She'll allay their doubts and soothe their anxieties. But when Tessa discovers disturbing truths behind the transformative technology she's championed, her own fear begins to rock her faith in the Seahorse Solution. With each new secret Tessa uncovers, she realizes that the endgame is too inconceivable to imagine.

Nursing rigs to allow fathers to take on more of the caretaker role; pregnancy pared down to 9 weeks so it is less disruptive in a woman's life. This novel may be science fiction, but it delves into the way pregnancy and motherhood can stand in the way of women’s ambitions.
