A first-time mum's and an experienced obstetrician's view of life after childbirth, with a no-holds-barred look at all the physical, mental, and emotional changes that will forever turn your life upside-down . . . but in a good way!
When vocalist and actress Kelly Rowland, whose albums have sold millions of copies worldwide, gave birth to her son, it was love at first sight. But she was also a little freaked out about what had happened to her body and the overwhelming new thoughts and emotions. In WHOA, BABY!, Rowland and her ob-gyn Dr. Tristan Emily Bickman team up to cover everything a first-time mum needs to know: the gross physical stuff, the hormonal and emotional stuff, and the just plain weird stuff.
WHOA, BABY! is often hilarious and always honest and down-to-earth. Readers will empathise with the candid unglamorous experiences of parenting. From falling asleep with the pump on to swollen legs and lack of sleep, Rowland and Dr. Bickman cover every surprising challenge that new mums face.
An honest and humorous look at all the odd changes and often gross repercussions that accompany childbirth...Rowland is indeed very funny, and along with the medical advice of Bickman, offers a winning and entertaining sampling of how pregnancy and birth-while lovely-is sometimes just totally disgusting. - Library Journal
