Summary

The real guide to pregnancy, birth and beyond. 

I’m assuming you’ve picked up this book because you’re either curious about having kids, you’re currently up the duff, or you’re stumbling through the early days of parenthood with a mattress-sized sanitary towel between your legs wondering what the hell has just happened. That, or you’re killing time in WHSmith, waiting for your flight to Ibiza. You lucky bastard.

Either way, this book is your pregnancy, birth and postpartum BFF.

Welcome to Motherhood, Bitches is your one-stop, no-filter guide to everything from swollen vulvas and dinner-plate areolas; from shitting in labour to the horror of postpartum haemorrhoids; from mindless sleep deprivation to salvaging a sex life when your pelvic floor has hit the floor. But mainly, it’s a reassuring reminder that feeling slightly (or shockingly) out of control with a newborn baby human is entirely normal...we promise.

Alien in my uterus ?

I am Sure I don’t have an alien in my uterus… I don’t like the approach of this book to the pregnancy

Not for me

Entertaining enough but not informative. I returned after a couple of chapters. I liked the fact the author was trying to give a more realistic account of pregnancy, birth and motherhood but without any information to supplement the narrative you don't really get any further with understanding pregnancy, birth or the early stages of motherhood. So for me it lacked a purpose and I soon lost interest.

Not for me

It's not what I expected, but I'm sure others will love it. I hadn't realised it was an instruction manual on getting pregnant and giving birth. That's as far as I've got, but if that's what you're into, you'll like it.

Hilariously honest

Absolutely excellent, provides no nonsense informed information while being honest and real and utterly relatable and approachable.

Also, it’s hilarious - listened to this on a round trip from Dublin to Kerry and had to pull in from laughing while Victoria was describing her very traumatic trip to the piles doctor!
