In this honest, accessible illustrated guide to how babies are made, young readers can find out exactly what is needed to grow a baby, from introducing the basic building blocks of life such as sperm and eggs, to explaining the different ways that these building blocks can be put together to create a family.

Working closely with a leading national LGBT organisation, this inclusive guide to Making a Baby covers sex, sperm and egg donation, IUI, IVF, surrogacy and adoption, as well as explaining how a baby grows in the womb and about different kinds of births.

Written in gentle and accessible language that can be shared with younger children or read alone by confident readers, we hope this book and its charming illustrations will provide the stepping stone for every parent to have an open conversation with their child about how babies are made, and their family began.

Clare works on a big variety of fun projects, creating pictures and patterns for home products, stationery, story books, magazines and packaging.
