More About the Author

Heather Cushman-Dowdee started creating art with the Hathor the Cowgoddess character way back in 1999 while she was in Graduate School. There were paintings, sculptures, and performance art starring the Goddess of Moo and her superhero husband and the first and then the second of the four kids. Then, after graduation the whole family moved to the west coast and a really small apartment. There was no way to build giant sculptures of Hathor any more. And performance art? Maybe in the laundry room? She started cartooning her life on paper balanced on her lap right smack dab in the middle of the living room. Life changed her art. She began posting the comics on a website in 2002.

In 2008, after many long years of drawing the comic and building a large and beloved audience, Heather decided to stop drawing Hathor and begin a new comic. Mama Is... The new comic coincided with the birth of her fourth child. So there's lots of homebirthing, breastfeeding, and attachment parenting antics in those comics too.

In 2013 Heather stopped cartooning because the comics felt complete. Now she spends her days fielding calls from UpWorthy.com and the Huffington Post and writing novels under the pen name, H.D.Knightley. And guess what? Her first novel has a character that breastfeeds!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was recommended to me by someone who believed that women could easily birth their own babies at home without medical assistance. I read the book and sure enough, with each beautiful story of home childbirth, I came to realize that it really is a natural process that is wonderful and empowering for the new mother.
Some of the stories moved me to tears. I felt very inspired and warm while reading, and the author herself has a great sense of humor and made me feel like part of a sisterhood. There are some really cute little comics here and there throughout the book that constantly made me smile. It's basically a collection of examples of women who believed in their own bodies and followed their instincts to have a perfectly safe and natural experience bringing their new babies into this world.
After I read this book I read Grantly Dick-Read's book Childbirth Without Fear and Laura Shanley's Unassisted Childbirth, and now I am proud to say that I no longer believe the myth that childbirth is an emergency. I wish all women could lose the fear they have about having babies!

This book is filled with wonderful and positive birth stories. I read it before the unassisted birth of my second daughter and I loved it. I'd reccomend it to any expecting mother.

this is a wonderful book on birth, no scary stories in here. i feel that it is a nice remedy to all the scary stories that surround birth. not all birth is a horror story. if you want some funny, beautiful, loving birth stories this is the book for you. even if your own birth didn't look like any of these, it is nice to know they do exist.
