Publisher's Summary

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 and 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 a happy take on all things mum-related, Giovanna has developed a following of fellow parents and mums-to-be.
This is not an audiobook 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.

One mothers experiences about parenting

I bought this book to prepare for the arrival of our new, first baby. It's an interesting story of a woman's experiences conceiving and raising two boys, however it is not the book that I was looking for. I wanted an instructional book about how to care for a new infant and this book is about one mothers experiences, rather than the guide I was expecting. Not for me but I can see I'm the exception to the rule as the book has good reviews from other parents.

Lovely listen

It was lovely to find an honest, empowering and informative book as I near the end of my pregnancy journey. With so much advice on offer, I take from this book the ideas that I think will suit my parenting style, knowing I can come back and revisit the book when a particular challenge arrives. I like that it's fairly concise so not too overwhelmingly first time around or if I need to come back and listen again. I've bookmarked some of my favourite parts. Thank you Giovanna for sharing

Absolutely lovely!

G is such a story teller! From the opening chapter I was hooked and carried this with me into the bath, on the bus and into bed to listen to before I slept. As someone who dearly wants a family one day it was a joy to read that had me gasping in disbelief and giggling hysterically.
