Mumma to Be – Amanda Starling
Every hiccup and foreign moment I endured I wanted reassurance and peace of mind. From that moment I was prompted to record my journey. My words began, freely, candidly and honestly. Initially I was writing for my baby thinking it would be a great keepsake for when she was older – I’m such a realist thinking so far in advance! Perhaps she will be mortified to know how candid and forthright I was. I began writing everything, I knew I couldn’t count on my memory (baby brain); everything I thought was relevant I wrote down throughout my pregnancy.
My intent behind ‘Mumma to Be’ was initially for my baby girl, then it changed direction slightly as I began writing for all first time Mums. I took it from a light hearted point of view to enable the reader to get a sense of realness and comfort from my words.
