Sunday Times Number One Bestseller Happy Mum Happy Baby is now a Number One podcast.
A positive and uplifting book about what it is to be a mother and all things mum and baby by Celebrity Mum of the Year and phenomenally popular vlogger, author, TV presenter and actress Giovanna Fletcher.
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, 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 happy take on all things mum-related, Giovanna has developed a following of fellow parents and mums-to-be.
This is not a book 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.

Giovanna is now one of my idols- I only came across her from a facebook advert for this very book- I watched it and was hooked and so when it was released I had to grab it!
I love how open and honest she is from the start (which from her vlogs and facebook page that I followed soon after watching the advert-this wasnt much of a shock) and nodded in agreement to most of the things she mentions. Wish I had this book with my 1st as it would have helped in the beginning of the journey 🙂
Easy to read and come back to – it was an enjoyable bit of light reading. It was refreshing to read real tales and struggles from even someone famous- that we all have our own ways in parenting 🙂 and that we are not alone- that its ok to ask for help and not be perfect all the time.
From pregnancy troubles, birth, baby phase to toddler phase- this book is a gem and one I would recommend. If this is what her non-fiction book is like then I cannot wait to read her fiction books (Already on my TBR pile) I love her writing style!
