Starting with a memorable description of the birth of her son, Nicole Hall presents her thoughts, fears, joys and struggles during the first 12 months of motherhood. Topics covered include the first days in hospital, what happens to her body as it recovers from birth, sleep issues, breastfeeding, circumcision, the emotional and sexual relationship with her husband and much more. Offering a wealth of information for pregnant women and new mums, it also depicts Nicole's inner thoughts on her transition from a professional working woman to full-time stay-at-home mum. At times hilarious and sad, poignant and quirky, Diary of a First-time Mum is a must-have for any new or about-to-be-new mum, and is an endearing and valuable companion.
Nicole writes: 'Diary of a First-time Mum was written for pregnant women (and their partners) and for new mothers. It discusses all sorts of aspects of new motherhood, some of which I was aware before becoming a mother (i.e. new babies need regular feeds and sleeps), and many of which I only discovered as they suddenly occurred (i.e. everything else). The book contains knowledge I wish I had possessed before my babies were born, and will, I believe, provide invaluable pre- and post-birth insights to all eager-to-be mums like I once was / still am.'
