9780091886868: From Here to Maternity: One Mother of a Journey

This book is the antidote to the rather wholesome, oh-so-serious and often smug range of pregnancy literature currently on offer. It's a story for women everywhere who have been, are or want to be pregnant. Mel Giedroyc, from "Mel & Sue", has based the book on her own experiences of pregnancy and birth and the dramas which ensue, and it covers everything from the usual morning sickness, food cravings and getting a seat on the bus, to the not-so-usual talking in Latin to the foetus through a shower attachment and falling in love with the Epidural anaesthetist. It's a witty and insightful narrative of events leading up to the birth of a first baby through the eyes of an excited, shambolic and slightly at sea, thirty-something, who pens the trials and tribulations of her journey to motherhood.

Review:

"highly polished and intelligent to boot" The Times "Legends in their own lunchtime" The Guardian

From the Publisher:

Mel Giedroyc is one half of the comedy duo Mel & Sue and these are the 'mumoirs' of her strange and hilarious spiral towards motherhood.

Book Description Ebury Press, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: Used; Acceptable. Dispatched, from the UK, within 48 hours of ordering. The book is perfectly readable and fit for use, although it shows signs of previous ownership. The spine is likely creased and the cover scuffed or slightly torn. Textbooks will typically have an amount of underlining and/or highlighting, as well as notes. If this book is over 5 years old, then please expect the pages to be yellowing or to have age spots. Grubby book. This book is dirty and has significant shelf wear, however all text is there and readable, as such it is acceptable for sale, and is still a good read. Thanks.
