The fat ladies' club are Sarah, Hilary, Andrea, Lyndsey and Annette. They met at their ante-natal classes and their book will give you a taste of all the emotions and changes, humourous and horrendous, which they experienced through their pregnancies and early months of first-time motherhood. Other books will give you the factual stuff - what changes you can expect to your body, how the foetus develops, well, forget the textbook theory now and settle down for what amounts to an eavesdrop into their girlie chats. There are no facts, no figures - just pure unadulterated detail on all the bits you really wanted to know but were to afraid to ask! What happened to their sex lives? Did "it" feel the same afterwards? When did they first feel like a mum? This alternative guide to the real in and outs of pregnancy gives entertaining anecdotes which women may either learn from, relate to or remember back to their own pregnancies with amusement.
The five authors met at antenatal classes in Berkhamsted. Each from different backgrounds, they became friends and decided to write about their FAT LADIES' CLUB. This is their first book.
