How Mamas Love Their Babies
|Author:||Juniper Fitzgerald; Elise Peterson (Illustrator)|
Illustrating the myriad ways that mothers provide for their children--piloting airplanes, washing floors, or dancing at a strip club--this book is the first to depict a sex-worker parent. It provides an expanded notion of working mothers and challenges the idea that only some jobs result in good parenting. We're reminded that, while every mama's work looks different, every mama works to make their baby's world better.
Juniper Fitzgerald realized there was no book addressing the particular stigma she faces as a former sex worker and mother.
Elise Peterson is a writer, artist, educator, and former sex worker.
