How To Grow A Baby (and Push It Out) is a unique week-by-week pregnancy companion written for a whole new generation of modern maverick mums written by an NHS midwife with over a decade of experience (and Mother of four girls) Clemmie Hooper and covers everything you wanted to know but were too embarrassed to ask.
What really makes How to Grow A Baby unique is that it encourages the reader not to accept everything they are told, but also to be curious, to challenge and question the information they are given, right from their first hospital ante natal appointment until after their child is born.
With non-judgemental sensible tips and advice, Clemmie covers everything you will ever need to know about being pregnant, right through to 'You Got This Mama' - a chapter devoted to supporting women as new mums after delivery.
Clemmie's observations and unrivalled knowledge are unparalleled. From finding out you are pregnant (the two pink lines) she'll ease your morning sickness with soothing advice and nourishing recipes, help you with tips on bra buying and give you information about what to expect at your 12 and 20 week scan. You'll learn how to survive office parties and how to cope when your baby comes home ('eat, sleep, poo repeat') to coping with the experience of the first time you breastfeed in front of your father in law! And if you are struggling with breastfeeding Clemmie has a section in the book on support networks and the way forward.
Clemmie says 'Each pregnancy and birth is unique. There are no rules and there isn't always a right or wrong way to do things. I want to empower women so that they feel they have a choice. Being an advocate of this, as a midwife and a mother is fundamental to me'.
