Upon opening the front cover I noticed a stamp mark, which stated it was from my hometown. I had to stop and think about where I got the book from, and then remembered I was going to buy it from the op-shop which is about 45 minutes from my hometown, but the lady behind the counter gave it to me for free (she is also from said hometown, thanks Linny).
This is a collection of stories from mothers all over Australia and beyond. They each share the incredible moments of birth or other parts of their journeys as mothers. All up there are seventeen stories; all about a chapter long. Some are stories of triumph, overcoming adversity, all consuming love, fear or loss. There isn't a lot I can say about the book as a whole, seeing as it wasn't really a book... But I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading Mother Love 2, which I have.
Recommended If: You like reading about babies and want to know the truth about birth.
What I discovered: I have always wanted to have a water birth, but now I think that I'd also like to have a home birth.
Mother Love 2
So technically I read this book while I was on prac in North Queensland, however... I hadn't quite finished it when I had to go back to college and ended up leaving it at home. Flash forward 3 weeks of uni, exams and a holiday with some friends I finally finished it this morning... and when I say finish, I mean read two tiny "chapters".
Anyhowzers, It is a collection of stories about motherhood from a bunch of Australian mothers. People think that I'm weird because I am nineteen and obsessed with babies. But I was obsessed with them when I was nine and never really grew out of it. Plus, obsessed is a little strong. I'm going to be a teacher so obviously I love kids and I like to read and I want to be the best mum I possibly can be when the time finally comes after I meet Mr Right *cough hurry the hekk up cough*. Sorry for rambling, my cat has decided that it is fun to meow her head off like crazy at 3-5am for the past few nights. Cheers for that Brax!
