Also participating in this event will be MP for Brighton Pavillion and the writer of the forward of 'The Secret Life Of Mothers' Caroline Lucas MP.

 The Secret Life Of Mothers celebrates the 10th anniversary of the group Mothers Uncovered, a Brighton-based charity founded by Maggie Gordon-Walker. The book, compiled from participants’ written contributions and interviews, presents a wide range of personal accounts by women of many backgrounds who have experienced the joys, doubts and pains of motherhood. From the anticipation to the reality of childbirth and the emotional challenges and rewards that follow, this is a unique collection of vivid experiences that will be of great value to all who have embarked - or who are about to embark - on this journey.

‘I became aware of Mothers Uncovered back in 2010, just a few years after it was formed. Since then I’ve had the opportunity to see the amazing work they do to help women navigate the early days of motherhood and beyond...
In this volume you’ll find poetry and prose, ecstasy and despair, searing honesty and wicked humour. It’s a testament to creativity, courage and love - and above all, joyous and defiant hope.’

From the foreword, by Caroline Lucas MP.
