Wonderful, informative book

I’d highly recommend this book to expectant and new mothers. Marie Louise covers all areas of what to expect, from labour and birth, to the post natal period, and beyond. I thoroughly enjoyed her advice in the lead up to my due date (next week) and will no doubt reference this book as I navigate new motherhood.

One word: FANTASTIC !!!!!

I don’t ever leave reviews, so take it from me when I say BUY THIS BOOK!!!!

Such a good read/ listen. I would HIGHLY recommend this book. I’m aiming to fall pregnant towards the end of this year as a first time mum. So it was nice to read such a POSITIVE perspective of preganacy and birth. It’s made me even more broody than before, and super excited for the journey of motherhood.

This book was easy to follow and clearly read. The author included so many top tips and tricks (perfect for 1st time mums and mums to be). I’m so glad I have this in my audible liberate as I’ll defo be listening to it again! Thank you for such an amazing book.
