New children’s book about homebirth

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.

The new baby sucks milk from Mommy’s boobies because this is how he grows big and strong.

I am so proud of my Mommy and my new baby brother!

    That’s awesome. There is always room for more honest, open books about homebirth. When I was preparing my 2.5 year old son, we watched a ton of videos on youtube (nearly all of which have since been taken down for TOS violation…) since there weren’t many print resources available.

    there is also another beautiful book out there called “welcome with love.” about a homebirth. i got that for my son when i had my second – we delivered at a birth center and he was present.
