Under One Sky. Upcoming book.

Hey everyone,

We just want to let you know that we are going to release a brand new book soon. Under One Sky: Intimate Encounters With Moms and Babies by a Breastfeeding Consultant and Nurse is an extraordinary book about an IBCLC’s memorable encounters with families over a decades long career. We will announce a release date soon but in the meantime, check out the page on our shop.

Under One Sky recounts poignant encounters surrounding birth, breastfeeding, and the life circumstances of families from over 77 countries. As a lactation consultant, Chris Auer met with thousands of women as they began their mothering and breastfeeding journey, women from places as diverse as The Congo, Ecuador, Italy, and Nepal, as well as American women from all walks of life. The babies range from healthy, full-term to extremely premature.  The mothers range from 12 to 52. Chris Auer has worked passionately to champion mothers on this segment of their life journey. In the retelling of their stories, we see the importance of meeting mothers where they are in the moment, with an accepting, listening presence.  Under One Sky is beyond a memoir; it’s a mosaic of their stories and reveals a poignant picture of our connectedness.

She has listened attentively to the stories of mothers and her fellow healthcare team. She conveys her insights into ways parenting is deeply influenced both consciously and unconsciously, by a mother’s history, family, culture, and temperament.
