A chapter from Bump
The Monkey Mama chapter of Bump, how to make, grow and birth a baby will tell you everything you need to know about how natural birth functions. It is the story of all the good births from all the women throughout history, including countless numbers of your ancestors. It is a comic but it has been peer reviewed by professors of midwifery. Everything you are about to read really happens.
Not just about home birth
When I market-tested this chapter, some readers assumed it was about home birth. It’s not. It’s about birth. It’s about what has happened when women have had babies since time immemorial. I gave it a historical setting because it’s a primal creation myth: it’s the story of a maiden, a mother and a crone. Oh, and I also wanted to be able to draw women with hairy fannies without it being a political statement.
