Jenny Douch (nee Campbell) compiled the book after losing her son, James, during late pregnancy. Jenny says, "After we lost James I desperately wanted to read stories from other women who had been through something similar. The only books I could find were either international publications or were written many years ago, there were no publications with just New Zealand stories". Jenny Douch is also the founder of the Smarter than Jack book series. The series was started in 2001 and raised over $440,000 for animal charities around the world including over $120,000 for the Royal New Zealand SPCA. Smarter than Jack was short-listed for Exporter of the Year in 2006, Jenny was short-listed for Wellingtonian of the Year in 2004, and the first book in the series won the Booksellers' Choice Special Recognition Award in 2002. The business was sold at the end of 2007. Jenny also compiled Bona Fide, 53 True Kiwi Stories about Life as a Teen and co-wrote The Kiwi Effect.
