Waterstones Says

Perfect reading for expectant mothers everywhere, My Child and Other Mistakes is a humorous and frank look at the challenges of modern motherhood from comedian and broadcaster Ellie Taylor.

Signed Edition

A standard edition is available here.

My Child and Other Mistakes is the honest lowdown on Motherhood and all its grisly delights, asking the questions no one wants to admit to asking themselves - do I want a child? Do I have a favourite? Do I wish I hadn't had one and spent the money on a kitchen island instead?

Stand-up comic, broadcaster and actress Ellie Taylor is relatable, clever and interested in how women can have it all. Her honest, hilarious and moving account of the whys and hows of having a baby makes perfect reading for expectant mothers and fathers everywhere, as well as those who've been there, done that, and wonder how on earth they did.

In this very funny book she writes candidly about her own personal experience exploring the decision to have a baby when she doesn't even like them, the importance of cheese during pregnancy, why she took hair straighteners to the labour ward, plus the apocalyptic newborn days, childcare, work and the inevitable impact on life and love and most importantly, her breasts.

“A must read”

I read this in less than 24 hours!

It really is laugh out loud (the post partum incident had me giggling)!

I’d highly recommend reading it to anyone - kids or no kids!
