These honest stories about birth and parenthood are put together into a beautiful book, hidden today by book fairies!
Book fairies in the UK sought to reassure new and expectant parents that help can be found in unlikely places! It’s been a tough time for anyone expecting a baby, and this collection of real stories just tells it how it is – and makes parents feel less alone.
About the book:
This broad range of honest pregnancy, birth and parenting stories, from the likes of Clemmie Telford, Molly Gunn, Megan Rose Lane, Anna Mathur and many more, is accompanied by professional and reassuring advice from experts that will help you navigate your own experience with positivity and confidence.
Nobody Tells You will give you all the tools you need to be informed and prepared for one of life’s great journeys. Without any scaremongering or sugar coating, truths are shared about topics including:
* Trying to conceive
* Postnatal recovery
* Not loving breastfeeding
* And many, many more!
Inspired by her own experience and frustration at the lack of honest information, Becca Maberly, pregnancy and postnatal expert and the founder of A Mother Place, and Roger Marwood, an obstetrician and gynaecologist, compiled this collection about the highs and lows of the unique and often nerve-wracking experience of pregnancy, childbirth and beyond.
Together, with the help of a range of contributors, they share their reliable, evidence-based advice with positivity and a good dose of humour. Whether you’re just thinking about having a baby, you are already pregnant, or you have become a parent recently, this book is an invaluable guide.
It’s been a tough time for new and expectant parents in the last year, so The Book Fairies jumped at the chance to show how help can be found in unlikely places! Copies of Nobody Tells You: Over 100 Honest Stories About Pregnancy, Birth and Parenthood by Becca Maberly were hidden all around the UK. Look, a copy even made it to Blenheim Palace!!
Author Becca Maberly herself became a Book Fairy!
Becca joined in the fun by hiding a few copies around the Isle of Wight for some lucky visitors to the beach!
