Every child deserves to see their birth and family in the pages of books about where babies come from – and this is exactly what our new book, Making A Baby: An Inclusive Guide to How Every Family Begins, is all about. Today we’re delighted to share an early preview of this very special book, written by our Head of Non-Fiction, Rachel Greener, and with charming artwork by Clare Owen!
In this honest, accessible illustrated guide to how babies are made, young readers can find out exactly what is needed to grow a baby, from introducing the basic building blocks of life such as sperm and eggs, to explaining the different ways that these building blocks can be put together to create a family.
Working closely with a leading national LGBT organisation, this inclusive guide to Making a Baby covers sex, sperm and egg donation, IUI, IVF, surrogacy and adoption, as well as explaining how a baby grows in the womb and about different kinds of births.
Written in gentle and accessible language that can be shared with younger children or read alone by confident readers, we hope this book and its charming illustrations will provide the stepping stone for every parent to have an open conversation with their child about how babies are made, and their family began.
