This book is perfect for new mums, mums au fait with being a mum or even those wondering about parenting!

I laughed ridiculously hard at the frank and compelling insight into what it means to be a modern-day mother. I remember reading it when my son was a toddler and feeling comforted by Turner’s stories and anecdotes.

It’s both a comedy but offers great tips at the same time in those moments when you are crying trying to get your child to eat peas.

The Unmumsy Mum is a fresh, funny, and incredibly brave account of one woman’s struggles through motherhood. Best of all, it is HILARIOUS! I laughed out loud SO many times. It’s a great book to keep you company through new motherhood and beyond. This is the funniest book I have read in years. It’s also refreshingly honest! Anyone who’s been through the turmoil of a new baby will relate to Sarah’s highs and lows. When I read this book, I felt like Sarah was a new best friend and a really funny one. Thank you Sarah for being brave enough…
