CONTAINS A BRAND NEW CHAPTER Sunday Times Number One Bestseller Happy Mum Happy Baby is now a Number One podcast. A positive and uplifting book about what it is to be a mother and all things mum and baby by Celebrity Mum of the Year and phenomenally popular vlogger, author, TV presenter and actress Giovanna Fletcher. Being a mum is an incredible journey, a remarkable experience that changes how we look, how we feel, who we are. As mothers we are strong, protective, proud. We feel a love like no other. But being a parent can be hard too. It challenges us physically, mentally, emotionally. There are the days where just managing to fit a shower in amidst the endless feeding, entertaining young children and surviving on a lack of sleep feels like an achievement. With so many people ready to offer 'advice' on the best way to parent, it can feel like you are getting it all wrong. Since Giovanna and her husband Tom Fletcher have had their sons Buzz and Buddy, they have been sharing glimpses of their family life. With an infectiously positive outlook and happy take on all things mum-related, Giovanna has developed a following of fellow parents and mums-to-be. This is not a book about how to have the perfect family experience - Gi would be the first to admit she is winging it just as much as the rest of us - instead it is an honest, upbeat and incredibly personal account of her own experience of having a family. In Happy Mum, Happy Baby Giovanna shares her own journey through parenthood and in doing so, she looks at what it is to be a mother today, encourages you to be confident in yourself as a parent and celebrates how putting a focus on being a happy and confident mum can really make for a happy baby.

The indispensable cookbook designed for the demanding, chaotic and sleep-deprived days of new motherhood. Mothers-to-be read all the manuals and are diligent about eating well and getting enough exercise, fully aware that their health directly affects their baby’s development. But what about after the baby is born? How can an exhausted new mother who is low on energy and time still manage to eat healthily? For new mothers, especially those who are breastfeeding, maternal health is more important than ever, and yet during those first few weeks of hazy, blurry,“What am I doing?” chaos, it can be tough to find the time or inclination to look after oneself. Annemarie Tempelman-Kluit, a new mum roaming the house at 3:00 a.m., desperately trying to find something, ANYTHING, to eat, decided she wanted to make mothers’ lives easier as they learned to cope with their new, harried schedules. Consulting other parents, as well as breastfeeding and nutritional experts, Annemarie began to devise strategies for fast, easy and healthy eating. Healthy Mum, Happy Baby is packed with creative, delicious recipes that don’t require exact measurements and won’t be ruined if they aren’t served immediately (while you deal with the cranky baby), as well as big-batch meals for the freezer, time-saving tips on how to stock your pantry before baby and useful ideas for healthy snacks you can eat one-handed while you nurse. You’ll find the most current breastfeeding guidelines from the Canadian Paediatric Society, up-to-date information on toxins in breast milk, the scoop on omega-3s, and even a few ideas for reclaiming a bit of your life before baby. The perfect shower or baby gift, Healthy Mum, Happy Baby is a practical, invaluable resource for every new mother.

Giovanna Fletcher, bestselling author of Happy Mum, Happy Baby 'Anna is breath of fresh air - relatable, funny and wise' Sarah Turner, bestselling author of The Unmumsy Mum Baby-proof the house; panic-proof the mum.

Perhaps you wake to check your baby is breathing, or the sight of a rash sends you down an internet search rabbit hole. Whatever your level of anxiety, however much it impacts your life, this book is for you. Anxiety is making motherhood a less pleasant, more fraught and pressured experience, and we do not have to accept joy-sapping worry and energy-draining overthinking as part of the motherhood job description. In Mind Over Mother, Anna Mathur, psychotherapist and mum of three, explains how to: * Understand anxiety, why it affects you and what to do about it * Make your mind a kinder, calmer, happier place to be * Transform your motherhood experience by addressing your thinking The most powerful tool Anna has to communicate this isn't the letters after her name, it is the fact that she is open about her own experience of maternal anxiety. By sharing her journey, she gives you the confidence to reframe yours. Mind Over Mother is full of light bulb moments of realisation. It will have you learning, laughing and loving yourself through the journey of motherhood. You will learn to address the most important conversation you'll ever have - the one inside your head, because investing in your mental health is the best gift you can offer yourself and your child.

How my quest for perfect breast milk helped me lose 24 kilos in only 8 weeks after the birth of my 4th baby. The cover of this book suggests it is a diet book. Or a weight loss book. It is so much more than that. It is a first hand account of a mother, who through societal pressure felt she had messed up her first 3 births (and kids). Share Sharny's journey as she tells you how she went from being the slave in her life, feeling trapped as though she were in a coffin called "bad parenting," with each new birth, she felt like she was driving a nail of failure on herself. Too tired to function, not enough milk, etc etc. All she wanted to be was the perfect mother to her children, but through lack of confidence, stopped listening to her intuition and became her worst enemy. With baby number 4, she decided to do things differently, very differently. Through ignoring society, listening to her inner voice and really focussing on herself as a mother, she turned her life around. She changed her eating to be for wellness and best quality breastmilk, and as a result lost 24kg in 8 weeks. But if that's all you get from the book, you only read the cover. Inside is a treasure trove of advice, and the courageous story of a public figure who through honesty to herself, turned her life around in a way that any woman can relate. And benefit.

Often, the pressure to be the perfect mother can add to a mother's worries - especially first time around.

Most importantly this is real advice for real women from real women - the 250,000 members of netmums.com, together with advice from the experts.
