Acclaimed cartoonist Kate Evans delivers a no-nonsense illustrated guide to the joys and pains of getting pregnant and giving birth in a much-awaited sequel to her breastfeeding bestseller, The Food of Love.

Her straightforward, funny and accessible text is illustrated throughout with detailed artwork to guide the reader through the intricacies of human reproduction whilst her customary laugh-out-loud cartoons demystify the complexities of pregnancy and birth.
