We’ve teamed up with mum and author, Rebecca Oxtoby, to give five lucky readers the chance to get their hands on a paperback copy of Mum’s the Word: the sh*t nobody tells you about parenthood until it’s too late.
Rebecca’s first book, Mum’s the Word, is a hilarious and brutally honest parenting memoir, exposing the truth behind life with a newborn. Tired of parenting books that push the Super Mum pretence and nobody ever acknowledging that sometimes, it’s rubbish, Rebecca wanted to say it how it is.
“This is motherhood laid bare. No filters, no frills, and often, no f**king clue. These are the hilarious, hidden tales about parenthood that InstaMums have cropped out for years: the leaking nipples, the sh*t-stained t-shirts and the truth about those bloody night feeds. These are the brilliantly funny and honest stories that every mother needs to hear – exposing the truth about parenthood. Mum’s the Word gives a refreshingly raw and candid insight into life with a newborn baby; uniting mothers against the Super Mum pretence and acknowledging that we’re all just winging it anyway.”
The self-published book is raw but light-hearted, and is already rated as a bestseller on Amazon with 5* reviews. It provides a hilarious insight into the horrors of pre-partum perineal massage, losing every shred of dignity during birth, and the joy, fear, exhaustion and love that encompasses the transition to mum. Alongside the hilarity, Mum’s the Word provides a refreshing raw exposure to unfiltered motherhood.
