In You’ll Be a Wonderful Parent, Jasper Peach provides a practical and emotional guide for LGBTIGA+ families around the arrival of a new baby.

Becoming a parent is already a challenging time, even more so if you don’t see yourself reflected in mainstream parenting resources, culture or even language. But alphabet soup families are also in the unique position of being able to intentionally build their own family structure and create an environment of huge love and belonging for their children. This little book holds the reader’s hand through the journeys of both birth and non-birth parents, with advice on everything from dealing with other’s definitions of your family, to finding the right medical care and communities, and of course making sure that you take a lot of naps before the baby is born.

A beautifully illustrated hardback full of warmth and personality, You’ll Be a Wonderful Parent is unlike any other book on the market in its inclusive and celebratory approach to queer parenting, and there is something for everyone to learn from the values and experiences of rainbow families. It is the perfect book for new or expecting parents of all descriptions.
Jasper Peach lives on stolen Dja Dja Wurrung Country in Castlemaine, Victoria, with their wife and two children. They are a trans, non-binary and disabled writer, editor, civil celebrant and broadcaster. They are passionate about equitable access and inclusion, with a strong focus on storytelling centered around the dismantling of misplaced shame. Jasper served as guest co-editor for Archer Magazine’s 16th edition, and their work appears in HireUp, the Sydney Morning Herald, SBS Voices and We’ve Got This, a book about parenting with a disability.

"This is the book you reach for when you want to view the big picture; when you need some extra affirmation; when you face challenges with your self, your parenting partner(s), your children, or the medical and legal systems not set up for queer families." – Mombian
