You've enjoyed many a happy hour - now prepare yourself for nappy hour!

Now living in Melbourne, Isabelle and Dr Jack are expecting their first child. And, naturally, Isabelle is the very model of a calm Earth Mother-to-be. . .

Or she would be if she wasn't consumed with anxiety about finding her pelvic floor, giving birth to a human-eel hybrid or the horrifying prospect of having a child named Leroy Marvin. Even worse, as Isabelle's tummy grows, so too does the distance between her and her adored Dr Jack who, it seems, has quite different priorities. . .

But with support from a host of new mothers including her friend Fran and her sister Audrey, as well as her fellow gallerina Doug, just maybe Isabelle can make it through pregnancy and childbirth with her dignity, her relationship and some more private bits intact. Then again, maybe not.

This was hilarious. Isabelle has a lot strange ideas about having a baby (I still don't get why she gets sick when thinking about baby eyelids), and a lot of sensible ideas as well. This is Bridget Jones for pregnant girls and mommies. Melanie La'Brooy is a very talented and funny author. Read full review

Melanie La'Brooy is one of my favourite authors so when I saw this I had to get it straight away. And it didn't disappoint. La'Brooy lived up to her usual funny entertaining self. This is a very different look at what it's like to be pregnant. I loved it and definitely recommend it. Read full review

About the author (2009)

Melanie La'Brooy is the author of the bestselling novels Love Struck, The Wish List and Serendipity, published in Australia. Although she wrote Babymoon shortly after the birth of her first child, she would like to make it clear that this book is fiction, as the thought of making love while dressed in a Carlton football jumper makes her feel ill.
