Mama Midwife - Book Review and Giveaway

I received a copy of Mama Midwife from the author, Christy Tyner, for review here on Bellies and Babies. I was so excited to see this book in the mail, as I am a sucker for kids' books.

The book is a whimsical and realistic look at the life of one young girl (Miso) and her mom, who
happens to be a midwife. As Miso is having a sleepover with her friends, her mom is called out to a birth. It tells the story of her friends learning about what a midwife does and even follows Miso to her first 'sibling-doula' job with one of her mom's client's daughters.

My children adored this book when I read it to them, the only thing my eldest didn't like was the 'random dream scene'. They all particularly appreciated how it shows children, in a gentle way, some of the common tasks of a midwife. This familiarity will help children to prepare for their own sibling's births and visits from their midwife.

It's a delightful, sweet, gentle look at the everyday miracle which is birth and midwifery.
