'The turmoil of new motherhood is still a taboo subject,' says Kate Figes in her groundbreaking book which, for the first time, tells it as it really is.
'A sanctuary of revelation about the baffling contradictory experience of becoming and being a mother... In places I laughed aloud in relieved recognition.'
Rebecca Abrams, Independent on Sunday
'Vital reading for parents to be... Sensible, with a lot of helpful details thrown in.'
'[I] salute Kate Figes's sensitive book which, admirably, helps redress the balance between the plethora of pregnancy manuals and the ridiculous paucity of advice on how to cope after.'
Leonie Miller, Mail on Sunday
