Due to our modern lifestyles, it is becoming more and more common for new parents to be embarking on the exciting, yet daunting, rollercoaster that is parenthood without the comforting folds of family nearby. In the very first chapter you are introduced to the calm spoken and maternally confident author and midwife, Lois Wattis, via a Youtube video link guiding you through what will become a VERY familiar part of your life….yip, you guessed it…nappy changing. I could not help but carry her soothing voice in my head as I read through this book and draw strength from it as she bestows her gems of parenting wisdom.
Being a mother of two, I found myself wishing that this book had been around whilst I was still pregnant. Drawing from her extensive experience as a midwife, mother and grandmother Ms. Wattis covers the numerous decisions that are suddenly yours to make as soon as your baby enters the world and I must admit that even I learnt a few things that I still did not know despite being a mother of two.
Loaded with practical information and tips, I would not hesitate to recommend this App and Ebook to soon-to-be parents. I would even gift it to my pregnant friends expecting their second child as a ‘refresher’ guide.
