Why Does Mummy Bleed?
A beautifully illustrated book aimed at children, age 2 upwards, to explain about why mummy has periods and how they can support mummy with her cycle.
Introducing cycle awareness, self care in a gentle story and picture book.
From the back page:
Why Does Mummy Bleed? is one of those important books that every Mum needs for her children. Let’s change the conversation we have around our cycles. Women around the world bleed each month and yet many never talk to their children about why, how to help or even what’s happening. Imagine if we could, not only talk, but talk positively about our periods. Dauntless Daughters and Moon Times have come together in a wonderfully gentle collaboration to explain and explore why mummy bleeds.
We believe that images are powerful. The things our children see everyday, the items they wear, the books they read, the little messages and the big signs all build their sense of self.
So shouldn’t we take care to make sure what they see is brave, diverse, joy-filled?
“The flowing words are strong and clear like a song, I could almost hear the lilting voices, rising and falling. The incredibly beautiful art portrays the mystery with an accuracy known to bleeding women. This is our mystery.”
Words by Rachael Crow of Moon Times and images by Stephanie Green of Dauntless Daughters.
