Praise for I Am Not Your Baby Mother

  • Blogger Candice Brathwaite is known for her beautifully constructed and refreshingly straight-talking Instagram captions, so we can't wait to read her urgent part-memoir, part-manifesto about black motherhood - Red magazine

  • Written in her brilliantly witty manner, this book is every black British woman's motherhood manual - Refinery 29

  • This book is about so much more than paid partnerships and a square-by-square existence. It is an energetic decimation of the narrow, middle-class white lens through which we culturally speak about motherhood; a humorous and sensitive navigation of the nuances within race (Candice, as a black British woman and her husband, as a Nigerian man); and a searing commentary, through the motif of a Bugaboo pushchair, on how class and race intersect. I gobbled it in one weekend and encourage everyone - mother, or otherwise - to do the same. - Pandora Sykes

  • Humorous but unflinching, every mother, everywhere, should read this book - OK Magazine

  • One of 2020's must-reads for all mums, new or experienced - Culture Whisper

  • An observant and timely guide - Evening Standard

  • A powerful challenge to narrow mainstream depictions of motherhood ... this is a book that will undoubtedly change the way we talk about motherhood in the UK - Lighthouse Books

  • Important and necessary - i news
