Does anyone have a source for books depicting home birth for toddlers/young children? I know that someone posted a book on where babies come from a while back, but I am looking for a book specific to home birth. If it helps, my DD will just be turning 3 when this baby is due.

"Welcome with Love" by Jenni Overend and illustrated by Julie Vivas.
A little boy is waiting for the home birth of baby #4. He's been the youngest up until now and is a little nervous about the new baby. His aunt is there with him and so are his big sisters. The midwife comes and gets everything ready while mom goes for a walk. She comes back and the baby comes and everyone is excited and happy including the little boy. It's a simple, wonderful story! And the illustrations are incredible. Julie Vivas is one of my favorite children's book illustrators. It does show the baby being born while mom is on all fours and it shows the placenta. Don't know how detailed you want to get!

A beautiful book, though with pg hormones raging I could never read it all the way through without weeping!

I did find that one on Amazon, but it's over $100 new and $50 used. I'm going to see if I can find it elsewhere. There were quite a few others listed though.
