Being Born by Sheila Kitzinger and Lennart Nilsson is the perfect book for kids who are really curious about what actually happens to a fetus as it develops.
It covers from conception (egg and sperm) to a vaginal birth and breastfeeding. It is full of highly detailed photographs that have been taken inutero.
It’s an old book that you can’t buy new anymore but is available in most libraries. I have included it because it is such a beautiful book.
Where Being Born by Sheila Kitzinger and Lennart Nilsson is ideal for children between the ages of 4 – 12 years of age.
