Classic kiwi comedienne Jacquie Brown has documented her journey as a pregnant woman in this title, which also covers pre-pregnancy, labour and birth and the ‘fourth trimester’ (the first three months with a newborn). In a literary market already covering a lot of these bases, Jacquie had her work cut out for her to produce something that would stand out from the myriad of pregnancy guides available. I think she suceeded admirably.
