Publisher's Summary

Being a mum is an incredible journey, a remarkable experience that changes how we look, how we feel, who we are. As mothers we are strong, protective and proud. We feel a love like no other.

But being a parent can be hard, too. It challenges us physically, mentally, emotionally. There are the days where just managing to fit a shower in amidst the endless feeding, entertaining young children and surviving on a lack of sleep feels like an achievement. With so many people ready to offer 'advice' on the best way to parent, it can feel like you are getting it all wrong.

Since Giovanna and her husband, Tom Fletcher, have had their sons, Buzz and Buddy, they have been sharing glimpses of their family life. With an infectiously positive outlook and a happy take on all things mum-related, Giovanna has developed a following of fellow parents and mums-to-be.

This is not an audiobook about how to have the perfect family experience - Gi would be the first to admit she is winging it just as much as the rest of us. Instead it is an honest, upbeat and incredibly personal account of her own experience of having a family.

In Happy Mum, Happy Baby, Giovanna shares her own journey through parenthood, and in doing so she looks at what it is to be a mother today, encourages you to be confident in yourself as a parent and celebrates how putting a focus on being a happy and confident mum can really make for a happy baby.

    "Not all that helpful..."

    Was hoping to be inspired but this is really just a personal account of having children from someone who has money and 'stuff.' Clearly a nice woman and a good mum but I found it completely self indulgent and less helpful than I hoped.

    "Beautiful"

    I'm not a mum yet, nor do I plan to be anytime soon, but as a young woman who hopes to have a family of her own one day, this was everything I needed to hear. Beautiful, honest, and just truly lovely.

    "Funny, honest and an entertaining read"

    I am an expecting mom and thought this book was an honest insight of what is to come. It didn't give you answers or what to do right just some honest to goodness outlook of what is to come and just to try your best. It was easy to listen to and really enjoyed it.

    "Beautifully Relatable"

    Having my own two year old boy, I found this book incredibly refreshing. Her accounts of everything from being pregnant, the birth, and even the time out step have made me reflect on my own beautiful journey into motherhood and I absolutely loved every moment of this book. I laughed and I even tested up a few times. Gi, thank you for the first mother book I've read that doesn't judge, it's not a how to book (but gave me loads of tips!) and made me laugh throughout.
    It's blooming brilliant

    "Funny, heartfelt, honest and relatable"

    I was initially put off by the title; I thought this would be another one of those books which tell Mothers it's all their fault. One which prescribed recipes for eternally happy babies, who never cry and sleep all night (ha!). I was wrong, it's a lovely, frank, heartfelt account of early Motherhood. I would recommend if for Parents to be and Parents of the under threes.
    It's particularly nice when a title is read by its author and Gi does an excellent job of narration.

    "Completely relatable!"

    Motherhood is such an isolating feeling sometimes. You wonder if you are the only one experiencing these challenges. Time after time Giovanna spoke of the same thoughts, feelings and experiences I have gone through since becoming a Mom. I feel like a have a new Mom friend after listening to this book!

    Every young parents or parent to be should read this book. It was well stated full of humor dignity and maturity. I was amazed at how mature and realistic the author was about her life, her mother hood, and her body.
