This is the baby shower gift every expectant mother must receive before having a baby. It details things that can, and often do, happen to women during labour, childbirth and the first few weeks of motherhood, that women wish they had known before they had their baby. I Wish Someone Had Told Me… contains truthful, factually-correct, entertaining experiences that hundreds of mums from around the world would like to share with pregnant women and new moms everywhere. The aim of I Wish Someone Had Told Me… is to shed light on many of the things that women don’t like to talk about, like how scary it is to do a number 2 after you’ve had a baby. The promise throughout the book is to speak the truth, warts and all. The author, Jennifer Hacker Pearson, hopes that by sharing these experiences mums-to-be and new mothers will be better prepared going into their journey of childbirth and motherhood, and that their knowledge of these things, and that they happen to other women too, will reduce their chance of perinatal fear, stress, anxiety and depression. Jennifer Hacker Pearson holds a PhD in Medicine, however she wrote this book as a mother for mothers. The experiences detailed in I Wish Someone Had Told Me… are true, gross, entertaining, sometimes rude, and an absolute must to share.
