Kids of the Wild reblogged this on Kids of the Wild and commented:

Image of mauve book cover of Musings on Mothering poetry, art and prose anthology Mother's Day is fast approaching (Sunday March 11th, UK and Sunday May 13th, USA) when our thoughts turn to the thank you gifts we will give to the wonderful women who brought us into the world. Here's an idea for a different Mother's Day gift, celebrating all aspects of motherhood and what it means to become and be a mother. In 2012 I became an 'official' writer when two of my poems were selected to be published in an anthology of art, poetry and prose. The book, Musings on Mothering: About Pregnancy, Birth and Breastfeeding was published with all royalties going to charityLa Leche League, who provide breastfeeding support from pregnancy onwards, a charity very dear to me as a sustained breast feeder. One of the poems is dedicated to my amazing daughter Caroline, then 2 years old, who has fought an incredible battle with cancer in the last year, a fitting tribute to her fighting spirit. Below is the book's review on the wonderful natural parenting blog, Green Mums. Musings on Mothering is a great choice for a Mother's Day gift, especially for new Mums. But don't take my word for it, check out Green Mums' review below. And of course, Happy Mother's Day! For more on parenting read Oxygen Time, or for more on Caroline's cancer journey read Caroline's Rainbow.
