Some Mums call it their "Bible" - others say they refer to it "religiously" - but either way it's a phenomenally informative book, written by a Kiwi mother for soon-to-be mothers, and researched alongside leading Obstetricians, Midwives, Paediatricians & Holistic Healers.
NZ's leading literary agent Ray Richards says "Kathy Fray writes with force and conviction in an instinctive manner that readers are finding irresistible". NZ's College of Midwives says "Oh Baby reads like a long, loving chat with a wise aunty...She is insightful, blunt, compassionate, self-deprecating, affectionate, funny". The Press says "Fray's line of attack is different [not neutral, cautionary or clean]. She writes so energetically you can almost hear her ... This book is alive". World renowned maternity guru Sheila Kitzinger calls it "punchy"!
After having her own three children, Kathy Fray was annoyed at the existing mother-craft guide-books available: "They were usually all about the baby, with a seeming white-wash over the mother's experiences ... and always so perfect espousing their pious ideologies. I wanted to write realistic middle-of-the-road guilt-free truths, so this is a non-politically-correct book that is sensible, practical and brutally honest!"
