How to Explain Homebirth to a Toddler.

Or anyone else that just does not get it.  Adults included.

If you have a toddler and you are planning a homebirth, look no further for a simple way to explain what is happening.  Kelly Mochel has written and illustrated a wonderful children’s book that explains everything.  The illustrations depict the anatomical realities of a woman giving birth and nursing her newborn.

We’re Having a Homebirth is all about explaining that homebirth is a natural process not a medical emergency.

In a societiy that makes it difficult to find real images of the birthing process.   It is refreshing to find a children’s book about the realities of childbirth.  And that it is normal to birth at home.

  1. We have this book! I love it! I think it does a great job of explaining things at a very age-appropriate level & is very realistic, in a very positive way.
