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.
My honest thoughts on this book...
There has been so much wonderful publicity surrounding realise of HAPPY MUM HAPPY BABY book by Giovanna Fletcher that I simply had to find out what brought on the virtual frenzy on every possible social media platform. And of course, I am a mum as well. Although my children pass the sleep deprive, crazy routine days, it was nice to reminisce once more and think "this is exactly what happened to ME!"
Mum's quickly bond over their children, we all pretty much go through the same stages of our motherhood. Giovanna Fletcher managed to capture the very essence of every mother's happiness, the need to be the best mum in the world (to their child) and the self-doubt we all constantly search inside our souls and second guessing ourselves. And there is always a chance of scrutiny we come under when our children do not behave themselves in public but, we all have to take a deep breath sometime and count to ten and then dive in....
Every mother had been and will be in the same position at some point in their life, and so we all should support and encourage each other in this most amazing and life changing experience.
Giovanna Fletcher breathes a healthy dose of humour, reality and a never ending positive attitude to her fabulous book!
So if you are a mother or about to become a mother I highly recommend you to sample HAPPY MUM HAPPY BABY.
