So much spoke to my heart, it made me laugh out loud nod and agree out loud and possibly cry a little, quietly and with a mixture of joy and sadness. For Stroud, there is no question of an epidural: labour is and needs to be an extreme experience, which takes her to the brink of life and death, and “feels to me like the very reason I was put on this planet”. The title to be read and discussed is sign-posted and on sale for the whole of the previous month (with a discount for those who make it known they intend to come) and everybody is welcome, whether first-timer, part-timer or regular-timer. Windows users should also consider upgrading to Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, or switching to Firefox or Chrome.

Stroud was incredibly raw, honest and emotional with the reader throughout her book where sometimes it was to the point of being uncomfortable. The motherhood she describes is the very antithesis of the sanitised, smiling vision we are sold in washing powder ads.I really liked the writing style but think it was spoilt a bit by the unnecessary sexual references. You want to take the book in in small portions as you know it will end but you don't want it to end. A beautifully written, brutally honest dissection of motherhood by a woman who has five children, from pregnancy to teenagers, covering both the extreme highs and lows. In her touching, provocative and profoundly insightful book, she captures a sense of what motherhood really feels like – how intense, sensuous, joyful, boring, profound and dark it can be. I feel this book contained so many of the conversations I would like to have with my mother girlfriends but yet never seem to have the time for and perhaps I lack the ability to admit some truths.

It’s as if Stroud has reached into my head, lived my life for the last seven years and put it all down on paper into the most tender yet brutal memoir.We hear about Stroud's own complex relationship with motherhood, the challenges facing her other children, her relationship with her partner, her sex life, how she is trying to balance work and family plus so many more things. We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed.
