About the Author
Kaz Cooke is an Australian author, newspaper columnist, cartoonist and mother. She does not live in a rustic French farmhouse with a frightfully artistic husband, and, what's more, there appears to be some mashed banana in her hair.

Its not something we read every week. However, it gives the information in a straightforward and honest way and is very accessible.
Book itself has lots of up to date info. Has a few pages on trying to conceive before its gets into the pregnancy stuff. Funny author with her experiences included. Cartoons really sold it for me because graphic pics really freak me out and this doesnt have those, yay!
The book arrived quickly, packaged perfectly and in near perfect condition. It was exactly as I wanted it to be (it clearly had a history) and with the exception of a curled page ends it was near perfect! Couldn't recommend the book or the second hand purchase enough. I paid 1p for it FANTASTIC.
When you feel like all dignity is lost read this and realise you're NOT alone!
While all the other books are telling you how bond with bump and 'dont do this' and 'drink that' this book gives you real information while not taking pregnancy too seriously.
It's got a lovely how big is baby week by week measurement inside too.
