You have a baby! Isn’t it amazing – and also pretty terrifying?! I love being a Spice Girl, but what I am proudest of is being a mum. Even though I had all the real-life girl power of the actual Spice Girls on speed-dial, my incredible partner and my mum, I had so many worries and questions I couldn’t always ask out loud. What I really, really wanted was one, easy-to-read, honest book that would give me support without judgement – that might even make me chuckle occasionally.
So, I’ve written it for you! I’ve included all my stories about what that precious, exhausting first year was like for me, and I’ve also asked some brilliant experts for their help too, including a paediatric sleep consultant, a trusted NCT counsellor, a mindfulness coach, and no-less than five amazing midwives and doulas. I want you to feel like you’ve got this. Because guess what mama? You have!
