Children's Book about Home Birth

Re-Blog from Radical Doula

I got an email from Kelly Mochel, the author of this new children’s book called “We’re Having a Homebirth!!”

She says she decided to create the book when they were planning for their homebirth and couldn’t find any literature for their 2 year old to read about the process. She self-published the book, which is available for purchase on her website.

I only saw the sample pages here, but I appreciate the frankness with which she talks about the issues at hand. For an example see this page about breastfeeding after the jump.

Ok, "the new baby sucks milk from Mommy's BOOBIES?!"  Come on now, children are intelligent, we don't have to use goofy sounding words for them to understand. They can learn the word proper word for breasts.

  1. Amen! Though of all silly goofy euphemisms for body parts, I do find "boobies" the best.
