REVIEW + GIVEAWAY: HOW TO GROW A BABY AND PUSH IT OUT
How to Grow a Baby and Push It Out is a new guide to pregnancy from midwife and Instagram superstar Clemmie Hooper aka @mother_of_daughters.
As well as the obligatory ‘your baby is now the size of an artichoke’ the book feels like a relaxed chat with a mate rather than a cold plastic implement stuck up your hoo ha.
It’s non-preachy, non judge-y and isn’t trying to replace medical advice from your regular midwife.
If you follow Clemmie on Instagram (and with over 400,000 followers, you probably do), you know she’s pretty funny and the book stays true to her tone of voice (dare we say it’s ‘on-brand’).
She covers topics like easing the dreaded morning sickness, how to survive the office party or wedding when you aren’t quite 12 weeks and not ready to start telling people, plus useful tips on choosing where to give birth, coming to terms with and dressing your new, larger body pre and possibly post-baby and the rollercoaster that is breastfeeding.
Clemmie has based this book on over ten years of experience as midwife and that shines through in the practical advice she gives.
If you’ve got a question related to pregnancy and/or birth (including what is and how to do perineal massage and whether you’ll ever have sex again), she covers it in How to Grow a Baby and Push it Out.
If you are pregnant or thinking about becoming it, you’re going to want to get a hold of this book.
You'll probably devour it when you first get it and constantly refer back during your 40 weeks of pregnancy and again after you've given birth, for reassurance that looking and feeling the way you do is perfectly normal.
And we have a copy to give away! Leave your details below and we’ll draw a name out of the hat on Sunday.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.
