As this is my second bambino I never really planned to read any pregnancy/parenting/weaning/sleep etc books again. To be honest I was never very good at reading them the first time around. It’s not at all that I thought I knew what I was doing, I just tended to skim through the books I’d been given, take the important parts out and then leave them on the shelf to collect dust.
So much of what I learnt with Jasper I learnt from friends, family, blogs, youtube and from just doing. That’s why this time around, I didn’t even bother to get the books back out of storage and just planned to wing it. That was until however the lovely team at Edbury Publishing sent me The Bump Class by Dr Chiara Hunt and Marina Fogle.
I’d been feeling a bit like I was neglecting this pregnancy, no books, no pregnancy apps, apart from the symptoms I wasn’t really focusing on this baby at all. I also had have this underlying fear that this baby will be completely different and I’ll be a complete novice again! So I decided to give in, allow myself some me-time and get to reading.
I assumed I’d know most of what was inside, I mean these books all the same right? wrong! Sure the facts and figures may be the standard but this book is such a refreshing change and perfectly suited to the modern muma. It has an air of Parisian chic about it, from the simply stylish illustrations to the relaxed and honest writing style. It’s a perfect mixture of medical expertise and practical advice from two incredible sisters, Chiara and Marina.
It really is the perfect companion for all mumas to be whether complete newbies or 5-brood strong warrior mums; it’s an easy read packed full of useful information – no myths, no confusion and no mum guilt.
I’m really loving this book and just know that it’s going to be the next big read for us bump wearing mumas! I’d love for one of you lovely readers to try this out for either yourself or a pregnant friend/ relative/ neighbour – hey we all know a pregnant lady right?
