Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of How to Grow a Baby and Push It Out by Clemmie Hooper, read by the author. Everything you wanted to know but were too embarrassed to ask - a guide to pregnancy and birth straight from the midwife's mouth.

Mum to four little girls and midwife to many, Clemmie Hooper wants to share her knowledge, wisdom and stories about pregnancy, birth and mothering young children that aren't so widely talked about - straight from the midwife's mouth. From how to prevent tearing during birth to what you really need in your labour bag, Clemmie reveals everything pregnant women and new mums need to know with a good dose of humour and wit.

Disappointing.

If you are a first time parent, have a partner, live in London, you are having a completely normal pregnancy and have the time and money to go on spa breaks then this book might help you.

Loads of helpful real life stories

Really enjoyed this for its real life stories from mums and the general underlying theme that we're all different so no two pregnancies and births are the same. I also picked up loads of tips and tricks on the birth prep side of things. It's quite long but well worth a listen. It's helped me feel more in control of my final 10 weeks.

Positive, informative & enjoyable!

I really enjoyed this book - I found the general tone very positive and it seemed to cover most (if not all) aspects of pregnancy & birth)! Would recommend :)

Very informative!

This book contains a lot of information, but it's not one of those overwhelming "manuals".

LOVE LOVE LOVE

This book is so honest and informative. I love that it features other women’s birth stories and Clemmie’s voice is so easy to listen to unlike some audiobooks I have tried!
I really love this book and cannot recommend enough!

Great book

Although geared towards UK residents, it’s a great book with really helpful tips, I love the personal stories shared by various people. I probably listened to it 6 times

Better to get the printed version

I bought this on audible and started listening, before a friend gave me the printed version as a gift. I really love the printed version. It’s beautifully laid out, easy to read and in small sections like a magazine so you can dip ‘in and out’. The format doesn’t work so well when read on audible as you can’t easily navigate the sections and listening to recipes or tables being read out is a bit tedious.

Lovely book. Great gift for an expectant mum. Just buy in print!!
