Mama Midwife: A Birth Adventure :: Book Review (Update) + Giveaway! (Closed)

‘Mama Midwife: A Birth Adventure.’ Createspace Independent Publishing, 2013.

Can you think of many other awesome things happening than an author revising a book, based on feedback from readers (besides a collective effort of humankind to improve the global conditions by dismantling institutional racism, patriarchy, ending war, abolishing the death penalty, and all other systems of injustice, — a lengthy list of other things I can think of, that is)? But in this context, I’m talking about Christy Tyner, who wrote Mama Midwife: A Birth Adventure.

I reviewed this children’s book a few months back, and thought it was almost perfect. My only critique was the absence of breastfeeding the new addition, even as the mama bear drank milk herself after the delivery. With that suggestion and another, the extra scene below was added, after Mama Grizzly birthed her new cub in a warm birthing tub with the assistance of Mama Midwife, young Miso, and the other Grizzly family.

“Miso’s mama quickly placed the cub on his mommy’s warm, safe chest, where he had his very first drink of sweet milk from his mommy’s breast.”

Christy Tyner said she wants to get the message across about her support of breastfeeding: “I am a huge supporter of breastfeeding and attachment parenting, and I agree that even a small mention of it will help in our journey to normalize, promote and support breastfeeding.”

I am so thankful to see this revision, adding this crucial breastfeeding story to the scene.
