This is not a book that will help you grow (or raise) a human successfully. But this is a book that might, if you’re not too emotionally battered – and can see through the permanent eye twitch – help you laugh a little more than you cry. But that’s not guaranteed. Nothing is really guaranteed as a nurturer of the small people. Here is one couple’s take on the horrors and humour of modern parenting told from his side and hers: honest, sad and laugh-out-loud funny. From deciding to try for a baby to the harrowing realities of miscarrying, from pregnancy and labour to bringing baby home and trying to reconcile the old life with the new – this book will speak to anyone with a small human of their own or hoping to take that fateful step.
