Welcoming Babies shows the diverse ways we treasure new life around the world—the routines and rituals of a child’s first year.

As we read about babies from tiny Luke, who is spending his first days of life in an incubator, to Kasa, who is being introduced to the sunrise by her grandmother, we realize that there are many different—and yet strikingly similar—ways to welcome babies.

births bring.
