UK Headline Publishing (March 2011, 240 pages)
Bumpalicious! is a friendly companion book for mums-to-be. Much more than a ‘mumoir’, it covers the nine months of pregnancy on a month-by-month basis, with additional sections at the beginning and end covering the crucial stages of conceiving and getting back into shape.
Each chapter is divided into three parts that covers a checklist of monthly things to expect, do and watch out for. A diary-style entry from Denise, giving her personal experience of this stage and how she tackled the must-dos (and don’ts!) in the opening checklist and essential advice and guidelines from two of the UK’s leading experts in their fields; fitness expert Nicki Waterman and nutritional expert Amanda Ursell.
Bumpalicious! is designed to be a book to complement your favourite pregnancy books. Denise wants this to be the book that tells you all the things the doctors and midwives don’t tell you, things that will help mums-to-be feel relaxed, in control and sane!
