A Motherhood Anthology
Co-Authors Christina Walsh and Carolyn Turkington started off as two Moms starting a group called the MomBabes. As it grew from two to fifteen to more than anyone could imagine, we see them putting together stories from twenty authors who have given us a piece of their lives right here in each chapter. No two stories are all similar and each Mother’s voice shines through every page.
We have Gillian, who walks into birth and Motherhood questioning why the real stuff isn’t even talked about! With posts coming from so many sources telling you how you are going to, have or messed up your child, to the perils of actual labor, why is the person behind the Mom hardly acknowledged?
There is Maggie, a teacher, who co-founded the MASH Movement for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Maggie highlights how teaching vulnerability begins with parents. Such a beautiful message.
There are so many other Mothers with gems of information and wisdom of their stories. Each of them walking beside us through their chapter, baring their heart and their truth so authentically.
If you are looking for a book that bonds and binds mothers in this very special way, that empowers us instead of divides us, then you, my dear Mom are a MomBabe and you need to read this book and join the movement.
