“I first bought this book thinking that it would be a book for kids about birthing a baby. To my surprise the book was massive, a book for ME – page after page of well thought out information paired with wit, a great sense of humour, and perfect little doses of feminism dropped in.

This book is for all women, for women before considering pregnancy, for women that are newly pregnant, for women that are interested in pregnancy and birth. I would probably suggest the age range from 15 onwards? Possibly sooner, the focus on pregnancy might not be on the radar, but the invaluable beginning of the book – from fertility tracking to simple, clear, and hilarious information of how reproduction works. An empowering tool for young women and their male partners to have.

I laughed out loud, I shared quick snip bits with friends, and I read the birth story together with my 3 year old.
The illustrations are beautiful, raw, and effortlessly conscious of all peoples, races, sexualities, and families.” Amazon Review

I would recommend this book to all of my friends, and theirs. It is a beautiful treasure to have on my bookshelf.
