“I’m Not Fat, I’m Pregnant!”

Updated: Jun 26, 2018

I recently giggled my way through this book by Kiwi comedian and presenter in the “Keep Calm & Carry On” parenting series, Jaquie Brown. Jaquie has done a remarkable job of chronicling her own harrowing pregnancy experience as well as those from a wide selection of other Kiwi mums and – I was delighted to see – dads. This book is refreshingly honest and down-to-earth and includes balanced insights from a range of respected health professionals including obstetricians, midwives, nutritionists, baby sleep specialists and even a pregnancy exercise specialist.

This book is a bit of a one-stop-shop for Kiwi parents who want to know exactly what it is they should know about “getting pregnant, being pregnant and surviving

life with a crazy but wonderful newborn”. I also recommend checking out this review, or just give it a look-see for yourself!
