A Bun in the Oven: I was someone who didn’t see the ‘magic’ in pregnancy. It does have useful information in it but is not a traditional reference book. Clear Your Fears for a Positive Birth. Pregnancy and Remedial Massage – Brisbane. Easy and simple to read.

Books by Kaz Cooke. The book is split up into the weeks of pregnancy. A light hearted and funny book relating to pregnancy and all the crazy symptoms that come with it. It took me about 2. I brought this after reading the reviews here hp after a good friend recommend it. It would give me energy! This structure has meant that, in weeks when nothing particular happens, Cooke has forced herself into a corner — she still needs content for that chapter.

Showing of 8 reviews. Also it conforms to the “medical model” of childbirth and I wanted information on a more natural way of having a baby.

Now thanks to modern technology there is an ‘Up The Duff App’ for smart phones and the application gives you the opportunity to add your own information to keep a record of what might be the most important nine months of your life! It is well presented and takes into consideration all types of couples.


Written with good humour, sensible and medically sound research, the book covers almost any question you might have about being pregnant and giving birth. And the mere thought of running was totally laughable.

I did refer to this book quite a bit during my first pregnancy but it did not have a wealth of information. I read a section each week and feel better about all the changes that are happening.

Apr 13, Alison Condliffe rated it really liked it Shelves: Would recommend this book for your collection. Reviewed by Lisa80 20 April Honestly, the whole thing feels so completely absurd that you kind of have to laugh every now and then to keep yourself sane, and anyone or thing that encourages that gets a big fat tick of approval from me.

You need a good sense of humour and read your week each week and djff skip ahead and it’s a bit of fun. It’s a great companion dhff to read alongside getting information from classes and medical professionals, which again is far better than being inundated with helpful “advice” and personal anecdotes from work colleagues and, yes, even relatives. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life.


I managed to enjoy every single chapter and it wasn’t boring like most other pregnancy novels are. There was plenty of suggestions of places to look if you wanted more information. The final chapters are well worth a read. I am not a mainstream mum and I really don’t like these mainstream books, I read this book out of curiosity. It’s broken down by weeks and has Hermoine’s diary as the first pages of each week, followed by information and advice that every pregnant mother needs.

So don’t look only to a book for education on what to expect in labour, and don’t expect a book to cover all possible experiences.

The comic relief every now and then in the book keeps it interesting: I really enjoyed this book. It explains dufff by week what changes to expect, as well as providing pages of fun reading about the author’s experiences in diary format.

After that initial introduction to what you can expect in that week, comes a fictional diary by one Hermoine the Modern Girl.

I didn’t really enjoy the story that goes along with it all. DH even read this one and loved it. Congratulations, and have you got a copy of Up The FheKaz Cooke’s wonderful guide to being pregnant? My husband and I would read each week together at night to see what our little peanut was up to.
