Overview

Prime-time star and new mom Tia Mowry delivers a frank and hilarious modern pregnancy guide



A generation of women grew up watching Tia Mowry on Sister, Sister. Like a best friend Tia always told it like it was with hilarity and compassion. Now, in a pregnancy guide like no other, she leaves no topic off-limits while helping expectant moms stay empowered, pampered, and laughing out loud.



Sharing personal experience with cravings (she couldn’t have done it without sourdough bread and Funyuns); maternity clothes (Tia prefers black, with sequins); vagina exercises (just say No!); and hiding your bump from your coworkers (tricky for Tia, since her character on The Game was in lingerie half the time), Tia also discusses Ask the OB Q&A’s she posed to her own ob-gyn, along with dozens of tried-and-true tips for combating morning sickness, fear, and everything else that might overshadow a radiant glow.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Readers may recognize Mowry, winner of many NAACP, People's Choice, and Teen Choice awards, from her TV successes such as Sister, Sister; The Game; or Tia and Tamera. Adventures in pregnancy and parenting are frequent material for the style circuit, and like most celebrity mom tales, the advice here is secondary to the teller and is thus overly personal and clichéd. She covers everything from her early pregnancy to menu plans and from wardrobe advice to sex after the baby. Interspersed with stories about her swollen feet and flatulence problems are "Ask the OB" sidebars, which address common medical questions (such as swollen feet and flatulence). The book thus suffers from an identity crisis, hovering awkwardly between memoir and parenting. VERDICT While her acting success does not translate to print, Mowry has many followers and is a popular celebrity personality. Libraries should purchase for demand only.

    Love this book

    I enjoyed reading this book. It is great for expecting moms. I also would recommend this book to women who are already moms. Tia went through things I did while pregnant, so it would make you feel like you are not alone. Great read!

    Must Read for Anyone!

    I loved this book very much and found it really funny and enjoyable! It was a really good read and I found this book to be great for first time moms and as of now I myself am not expecting but a family member is and I passed it along to her and it really helped her with things she was worried about with being a first time mom! I highly recomend this book for expecting and unexpecting moms I think everyone will really enjoy it! =]
