Description du Livre

A candid, engaging, irreverent take on the struggle to come to terms with life as a new parent  Motherhood, for a first-timer, can be an overwhelming and even frightening experience, but admitting this doesn't seem to be something that's ever done. The birth, as the author explains in this memoir about the struggles of new parenthood, is the least of it. It's what happens after the birth that blows your mind. You're meant to look like an expert from day one despite the fact that the choices confronting first time parents are mind-boggling—and whatever they decide someone will tell them they're wrong. She covers it all, from unsolicited advice offered by complete strangers to competitive coffee group mothers, from baby music classes to expectations of parental perfection—all the pressures brought to bear on new parents. She found being thrown into this universe completely bizarre, and upon talking to friends, she found she wasn't alone. She found plenty of other parents who were as baffled as her when it came to the expectations placed on modern parents, and this book is the result.
