Summary

Seven months pregnant, Mel is dumped by her partner and is suddenly facing parenthood alone. But at her antenatal class, she meets a group of women who quickly become invaluable friends. Katy has her delivery planned to perfection. But she soon realizes that nature doesn't always follow suit. Lexi is coping well on her own. Until the only man she has ever loved reappears. Rebecca is not long out of her teens - but she's determined to hold onto her dreams, even without her family's support. Erin already seems to be an expert on babies, but her quiet nature hides a tragedy.

When you're contemplating pain relief, birth positions and sleepless nights you really need a good friend - or four.

enjoyed the baby group

Any additional comments?

so thought I would give this one a go.
more up to date than the baby group I really enjoyed this story of a group a women having babies and coping with being a mum for the first time. they became fast friends and were there for each other when the going got tough.
well written with two places where tears came to my eyes.
the only fault I found with Penelope rawlin's performance of the story was that the male voices she did were very much alike.
recommended if you like stories about pregnancy and adjusting to life with a baby.
