The Book



“Bump to Birth to Baby” combines our two previous ebooks (“From Bump to Birth” and “After Birth”) into one handbook of practical advice to steer parents through the months of pregnancy, the hours of labour and childbirth, and the first weeks of life.

Regardless of the obstetric care you choose, you can have access to the expertise of one of Ireland’s most renowned midwives and antenatal teachers, and the shared experiences and wisdom of veteran parents.

This is a guide for all expectant mothers (and fathers) packed with need-to-know information and straight-talking advice that has been tried and tested.  Find tips on alleviating symptoms, keeping healthy, preparing for birth, coping with labour, caring for mother and newborn, feeding, and common concerns.

"Best book I've read so far on pregnancy, labour and childbirth. Almost everything you need in one place. Only drawback: As a first-time mother,I wish I had headed more advice from this book, as it turned out to be the most accurate, of the numerous pregnancy books I'd read ( There was many!).......... I definitely recommend this book!"

Can't recommend highly enough

"This is a fabulous book. I hadn't time to trawl through lots of pregnancy books and a midwife friend suggested this. It's such a practical book with all you really need to know about pregnancy and birth, and how best to prepare. I read and re-read the relevant sections throughout my pregnancy, and really felt properly informed to deal with whatever happened both throughout the pregnancy and during labour and birth."

Extremely helpful
