A Real Mum’s Hilariously Honest Tales of Motherhood, Mayhem and Mental Health

‘A wonderful book all mums should read!’ Gemma Atkinson

‘You see, pre-motherhood I had this image of the sort of motherhood I was going to have. Happy, confident and in total control, breezing through my perfect new mum life, clad in white linen with a smiley easy-going baby attached to my hip. But then, something happened.’

This book is about bathing in the crazy, dirty, hilarious, bonkers truth about motherhood.

It’s about being brave.

It’s about empowering each other; talking about the times we get it wrong, our mental health, our worries about being perfect. It’s about admitting that we all need a little help.

For every mum out there feeling lost in the wilderness. For every mum feeling pressure to be perfect. For every mum questioning if they are good enough. You are magnificent.

‘Parts of the book made me cry, simply because she’s managed to put into words some of the things I never could. She’s captured the emotional turmoil parents go through, in a sensitive yet very humorous way. She’s encouraging, hopeful and the theme throughout stays true to empowering mothers, no judgement. Highly recommend this book to parents!’
