"Bookshops are flooded with baby care bibles that can be sterile in style. The Hills add wit to the mix, in this down-to-earth book on the first months of parenthood...an accessible, fun guide" Junior Pregnancy and Baby "the ultimate baby guru; a no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is straight shooter who delivers both practical and medical advice with the wit of Victoria Wood" YOU magazine "Any expectant mothers feeling anxious and unprepared should consider enrolling for classes with Christine Hill... Christine is an obstetric physiotherapist with a concern for the apprehensions, fears and idiotic queries of first-time mothers. Every week more than 100 women pass through her classroom and she answers the same questions with reassurance, common sense and humour... it is packed with sane advice." The Times "the perfect guide to your new life as a mum" Pregnancy and Birth
