THE YUMMY MUMMY by POLLY WILLIAMS

The Yummy Mummy

Not the cover of the book I read, but for some reason blogger is not allowing me to paste that picture!

Amy is our new mother, Evie is our infant and Joe is the partner. We then have the various other mothers - each one different and oh so very individual.  We have the single mum, we have the placid mum where everything is all right in her world, we have the model mum. the earth mum, the organic food only mum. In fact the whole gamut of them.

More than a story about Amy our new Mum, this is an eye opener into the world of new mums - the insecurities faced in a modern world ranging from body image to self confidence, to the need for family or partner support and how mums struggle to deal with these more modern issues. The subject of faithfulness despite the light hearted attitude to "affairs of the heart" and the heartbreak which follows unfaithfulness is also a revealing subject, specially in the view that these mums view flirting and sometimes an actual open invitation to flirting very matter of factly and part of the lifestyle.

A chick lit with a bit of serious overtones once you stop to think of it all.

I think being a new mother in today's world would be tough!

I read these sort of books all the time when I was in the midst of new motherhood/ pregnancy etc and though they don't appeal as strongly anymore now my children are older, this still sounds good.
