Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

The latest book from the number one best-selling author and host of the chart-topping Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast.

Letters on Motherhood is a collection of heartfelt and deeply poignant letters written by Giovanna to her three young sons, her husband and the family and friends who have inspired and supported her to become the mother that she is today.

Never one to glamorise the idea of a perfect family, Giovanna writes about the priceless highs and the challenging lows as she talks about the deeper universal truths of parenting including: coping with mum guilt, finding a work/family life balance, maintaining positive body image, rediscovering a sense of identity and a parent's hopes, fears and expectations for their child.

Honest, heartwarming and hilarious, Giovanna's musings on motherhood are both a joy and a comfort, paying testament to the power of family, even in difficult and challenging times.

Great book

I love this book, so open and honest and as a fellow mum of 3 it’s so nice to realise your not alone and even celebrities have days when the children are driving you crazy and you feel like a rubbish mum. Brilliant
