Creator of the popular blog "The Unmumsy Mum," Sarah Turner offers an uncensored account of her early years of parenting. Sarah Turner's first few months of parenting were tough. On the darkest of sleep-deprived days, when the baby would not settle and she was irritable and the house was a disaster-zone, she wanted to read about someone who felt the same. Someone who would reassure her that she wasn't a total failure. But she found nothing of the sort. She decided then and there that she would write something herself. She would document parenthood as she found it. Not how she wanted to find it or how she wanted other people to think that she found it. But how it was. Warts and all.
Thus, her blog was born. Now with thousands of followers, "The Unmumsy Mum" blog covers everything from "baby-wearing incompetence" to "second child shortcuts." Full of candor, humor, and charm, this book--a #1 Sunday Times bestseller--shows us that we can read every parenting manual under the sun, but still have no bloody clue--and not having a clue is just fine. The Unmumsy Mum is a winner of the 2017 Family Choice Awards.

About Sarah Turner

Sarah Turner grew up in Cornwall, England, and graduated from the University of Exeter in 2008 with a degree in Philosophy and Sociology. She worked at the Royal Bank of Scotland until 2012, when she gave birth to her first son and decided to work part-time at the University. Despite achieving the 'holy grail' of part-time work/part-time parenting, Sarah found motherhood considerably harder than she had anticipated, and for this reason, started writing the Unmumsy Mum blog. In 2014, Sarah's second son was born, and amidst the chaos of life with two children under three, she decided to dedicate more time to the blog, which has more than four million page views.
