More About the Author
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!

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!
