Pregnancy: the Naked Truth is a refreshing alternative to the medical pregnancy tomes. It’s down-to-earth, funny and honest, guiding women through each stage of pregnancy in a practical and reassuring way. It deals with issues other books may avoid, and answers questions you’d want to ask your best friend:

  • I got drunk before I knew – is my baby okay?
  • What’s an episiotomy?
  • Are piles inevitable?
  • Can I still have sex when I’m huge? And will I enjoy it?!

Aimed at ‘modern girls’ – women who may be concerned about the effect of a baby on their lifestyle, bodies and careers, as well as excited about the next step in their lives – the book supports you through your journey.
