This book has great color pictures that compliment the story of a baby being born in water at home. The whole family is involved in the great miracle of bringing a new baby into this world. The event takes place in their home, and storyteller is a seven year old girl named Katarina.

Her brother Magnus who is five years old and Katarina get to help out and watch as their baby brother is being born.

There is lots of anticipation and wonder. When the baby finally arrives Katarina and Magnus got to watch the birth, and they cut the umbilicus cord. Soon after the baby was born, he was held and loved, not only by his Mommy and Daddy, but also by his big brother and big sister.

This is a wonderful book for anyone that works with expectant parents, (midwifes, Obstetricians, doulas, childbirth educators, expectant parents and also children of all ages).

I Watched my Brother Being Born: Including Children At Birth by Anne Vondruska. I had to include one for the kids. Children are naturally curious about the birth process. Whether you plan to have them in the room for the birth or not, they will be curious about the baby growing inside you as well as the process of being born. The baby was born at home in the water. The story is told in words and pictures of the birth of a new baby. The children in the story get to watch their brother being born and help cut the umbilical cord.

Katarina and her five year old brother Magnus watch their baby brother being born and tell about it in this charming . Illustrative photos from Anne's third childs actual birth at home in a birthing tub make this book a rare find.

Katarina and her five year old brother Magnus watch their baby brother being born and tell about it in this charming and fact-filled book. The book takes on the voice of Katarina but also has an introduction for parents. My goal with this book is to teach our children that giving birth is a natural, safe and fulfilling process. Unless the birthing mother has an illness that needs special medical attention, it need not be treated like a disease. I Also have the accompanying DVD! I'm really excited about this great DVD that shows home water birth with children present.

I'm having a home birth, and my sister will be there. Both she and I want her six-year old daughter to be at the birth, and the six-year old is ecstatic about it. However, my sister wanted to prepare her daughter a bit for the birth. I ordered this book in the hopes it would be something she could read to her daughter to help explain the process.

Unfortunately, it is SOOO wordy and boring. It is an uninspiring, lengthy play-by-play of a woman's labor and birth at home, surrounded by her husband and other children. Honestly, I couldn't even bring myself to read the entire thing because it was so boring. Every page probably has four paragraphs of words on it, and one or two small photos. I can't imagine any child would be remotely interested. Even if they were, they would get lost because there's just too much detail and words.

The graphics look like point-and-shoot photos taken by an amateur, documenting certain parts of the birth process. I happen to be a birth photographer, so I know birth photos don't have to look this blah.

There is really nothing interesting or "book-like" about it. It's more like the mother wrote a super long birth story blog post, got a friend to take some snapshots, and threw it haphazardly into a book. It reads like the family's own documentation of the birth, like a family scrapbook of sorts, that no one else really cares about. It doesn't read like a children's story book or picture book, which is what I hoped for.

On the other hand, I HIGHLY recommend Hello Baby, as it was exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful illustrations, short and simple story of a home birth with midwife, father, children, present. It is truly a picture book for kids like I hoped this would be.

Although this book is thin, it really captures many feelings and experiences a young child may have being present at a sibling's birth. Told from a child's perspective, I believe this book will help my children become more comfortable with what to expect if they choose to be present at their sibling's birth. The book is real, addressing many key points. I think this book is beneficial in preparing children for the reality of birth.

This book might work well for older children- 7+ but not for toddlers for sure! I ended up giving it to my midwife.

My 3 and 4 year-old have a stack of books about home birth and this is the one they keep begging us to read. Yes, it's very wordy, but my girls still love it. It's given them a good idea of what it will be like when they attend their own brother's birth in a couple months. The photos seem to have more meaning for them than some of the more beautifully illustrated books we have. Not ideal for a toddler, but if they enjoy longer books, this is a great preparation for any child getting ready to attend a sibling's birth.

I have read this to our first daughter and we are currently reading it with our second daughter as we anticipate our next child's birth. It has good pictures and a nice story to give expectant siblings an idea of what homebirth will look and sound like. Story is from the perspective of the oldest sibling making it more relatable for children.
