Stone Soup Home Birth Met with Praise

Jan Eliot’s current story line about Joan’s pregnancy and baby delivery is being met by many midwives and mothers as a welcomed examination of alternative childbirth methods discussed on the comic pages. Jan is receiving many emails on a daily basis supporting the current story line.

From one email:

The actual birth isn’t scheduled for another few weeks.
