* Coping with mum guilt
* Finding a work/family life balance
* Positive body image
* Rediscovering a sense of identity
* A parent's hopes, fears and expectations for their child's future

Honest, heartwarming and hilarious, Giovanna's musings on motherhood are both a joy and a comfort. With stories parents everywhere can relate to, Letters on Motherhood is the perfect gift for mums.
