“But I don’t understand. How does the baby get in to the uterus?”
The truth is, when your adorable progeny asks the question it can be very awkward and seem to come out of the blue. Some of us stumble. For those of you who’d prefer the talk didn’t go as badly as it did for Lee, there’s an amazing resource in the form of the book, What Makes A Baby.
What Makes A Baby lovingly and engagingly answers the question that little children have about their origin in a way that doesn’t exclude any person. Cory Silverberg’s simple, sensitive text along with Fiona Smyth’s bright, playful illustrations, make this my favourite book about bodies, babies, and the big big questions on the minds of little little kids, by a MILE (or kilometre, this being Canada and all). And I’ve read quite a few.
Lee and I love this book so much that we want to give our Canadian friends a chance to win there own copy. So we are having a GIVEAWAY!!!!!!
For a chance to win, share your favourite Two Doulas post with your friends on social media and tell us in the comments section below (in this blog post, not on Facebook please) how old you were when you asked your grownups about what makes a baby. Feel free to add some context if you like, we love these stories!
Participants must be in Canada and 18 years or older.
The draw will be on Wednesday, June 22, at 12:00 EST.
Edit: WE HAVE A WINNER!!!! Genee Latreille is the new owner of this wonderful book! Thanks to all who participated. Happy reading!
