I much enjoyed writing my two Relate books, and exploring the intricacies of human relationships. Those two books, BabyShock! and Before You Say I Do, are practical and full of down-to-earth and thought-provoking information to help you through the challenges of marriage and parenthood.

My books about cats were written out of the pure enjoyment of being a cat owner. If you love cats, I promise you'll find something to fascinate in Everything Cats Expect You to Know.

I found this book in the library and loved it from the start! Elizabeth Martyn deals with all the issues that might come up when thinking about a family or already having one: Frome the planning stage ("Shall we? Shan't we?")to birth and beyond. The book is very easy to read (a must after a baby, you just don't have the time for something complicated!) and is filled with practical ideas on how to manage with all these emotions and the challenges for your relationship. It also includes the fathers, shows their side of the coin and gives advice on how to manage work and parenthood.

Moreover, it gives you the feeling that you're normal which is wonderful. A great book if you're feeling that you're lost in this whole parent thing, are afraid of your relationship or think you'll never have a life again (oh yes, you will!). Highly recommended.

I have a lot of respect for the good people at Relate, so I really wanted to like this book. Unfortunately, I found that not only did it fail to tell me anything beyond the commonsense (babies are hard work, try not to ignore your partner, agree about your finances etc etc.) but for me it was actively unhelpful. Like any soon-to-be parent, I have worries about what's going to happen to my sex life, social life, wallet and all the rest and reading some of the horror stories in this book sent me into a downward spiral of panic and depression.

If you have any problems in your relationship or just want a pre-baby tune-up, I would suggest actually going to Relate for a couple of sessions with a real counsellor who can tailor the discussion to your needs. Reading this book just made me worry about loads of things that will almost certainly never happen.

Really enjoyed this..... our relationship went through a very rocky patch when No2 came along. Reading this helped me realise our feelings were normal, though very opposing. Helped me cope with my feelings and we're sell married so grateful for the sound advise

Quite a common sense approach and does get you thinking and if you're a new mum validates all those irrational thoughts that come along with being a new parent, easy read so hoping husband finds it helpful also.

This book was recommended to me by a friend when my son was 6 months old. I wish i had read it when i was pregnant. It is easy to read with quick snap shot chapters that give insight into a range of subjects. This is great when you are busy with a new born or toddler!!

Personally it helped me to overcome some anxieties i had in the 1st year of being a mother.

I have bought this book for 2 of my friends as a gift when pregnant
