Mum's the word... Meet The Baby Group- Natalie ran her own design company until baby Freddie unexpectedly came along. Now the capable person she once was is trapped inside a crazy woman s body, longing for just one decent night s sleep and words of more than one syllable. Meg is onto her fourth child but still feels she has to take notes. Her sister-in-law Frances organises her little boy like he s a private in the army, but underneath the calm fa ade she s resisting the urge to lie on the floor and scream. Former career girl Jess sees danger lurking in every corner, doubting she ll ever be a good mother. Stay-at-home house-husband Steve is just glad to have the opportunity to spend time with his daughter. And sixteen-year-old Tiffany is the youngest yet possibly the wisest - of them all. Six very different parents. Six very different lives. But when Natalie s dodgy wiring leads to a series of chance encounters they rapidly discover - through Baby Music, Baby Aerobics, coffee and more importantly cake that there s safety in numbers. And their own unofficial baby group is formed
