A great review from Saffia Farr, editor of JUNO

I received a really lovely Christmas present in the form of a great review of Musings on Mothering from Saffia Farr, editor of JUNO.

Here is what she wrote in the Winter 2012 issue of JUNO (Issue 30).

Musings on Mothering: About Pregnancy, Birth and breastfeeding: An Anthology of Art, Poetry, and Prose

edited by Teika Bellamy, Mother’s Milk Books

“This is an amazing book. It is possible to become entirely lost in it. I have not yet looked at every page because there is so much to muse on. This is the hope of editor Teika Bellamy. Often, as mothers (and fathers), we are so busy caring and meeting everyday needs that we run out of time to muse…

…On first reading I was overwhelmed by the power of what is within. Motherhood is both wonderful and complex and Musings on Mothering captures this perfectly. All royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to LLL Great Britain.”

To read the full review, along with plenty of other great articles, you can get a copy of this issue here: Juno Winter 2012

A very special book-to-be.

Barb Sheppard, an LLL supporter and bookbinder, who really knows, and loves books, is going to make a one-off hardbound copy of ‘Musings’ to auction off for LLLGB in the New Year. I’m really looking forward to seeing the finished product. Here are her materials… very exciting!

'Musings on Mothering' is one month old today!

We’re celebrating our book’s one month old birthday today, and looking back on the excitement of the past month. Although sales of the book haven’t covered the production costs as yet we’ve been so heartened by the wonderful reviews and support we’ve had so far.

I’d like to say thanks to all the folk who have bought a book, helped to publicise it and spread the word… We’re sending an ‘electronic’ bunch of flowers to you all.
