"Mama, Talk About When Max Was Born" tells the story of Max's birth, which takes place at home in water. Max's older sister likes to hear all about when Mama first learned that she was pregnant; about seeing the doula and midwives; about preparing for Max's arrival and finally his birth in their living room. "Mama, Talk About When Max Was Born" is a sweet and normalizing look at home water birth for young children. While this does feature a home water birth, it is equally fitting for home birth families.
This story was inspired by the author's daughter, who was 23 months old when her brother was born. For months, she would say at bedtime, "Mama, talk about when Max was born". It was the bedtime story that she always wanted to hear. Now we are sharing that story with you!
