Perhaps most frustratingly for me, her account of her first birth varies at different points of the book, from her having this "amazing" analgesia-free hypnobirthing water birth to later on having had an episiotomy because she was advised by her doctor that it was the best thing for baby. Difficult to understand how these can both have happened, and for me this sort of loose interpretation of facts makes it very difficult to take anything she says seriously.
Feels very much as if she is jumping on the bandwagon of motherhood not being easy, but for me just comes across insincere. Parts of the book are tedious in the extreme, and basically an account of things that happened to her with little attempt to inject humour or real reflection. If you are after a slightly self-absorbed celeb diary of motherhood then you'll be happy, if you were expecting something with any real soul, point of view, or practical advice then I fear you will be disappointed.

As Fletcher mentioned in the book herself, this isn't a guide book, she isn't giving any advice, but sharing her own experiences.
There were so many things, which I thought, "yes, that happened to me, too!" You really feel with her, it was just the right mix of telling the facts with a good sense of humour.
The only downside is that she kept switching between the times of when she only had Buzz and when she has Buzz and Buddy. I guess that is because she was trying to cover the chapters by events, rather than just telling her story in chronological order. I didn't dampen my like for this book though.
