How Mamas Love Their Babies
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.
Loved by our collective!
I adore this celebration of working class motherhood by Juniper Fitzgerald and Elise R. Peterson. Through unique collage and simple words, this gem from The Feminist Press shows children that love comes in all shapes and sizes. Feminist readers will appreciate the explicitly pro-sex worker and implicitly trans-inclusive message.
