Moya Kate has done what many could not, she has written a hilarious, fun-filled story about the ups and downs of motherhood and made it stylish. Mama Couture is fantastic. For anyone who has had children, is pregnant or one day dreams of children this book is a must read for you.

Mama Couture is the story of Til Fisher a woman who has it all, the perfect job, a wardrobe full of designer clothing and a social life that most would envy. But on New Years Eve Til makes the ultimate fashion faux pas: teaming sexy stilettos with way too many champagnes and a gorgeous virile man in a suit. When the haze of New Years Eve passes Til discovers she is pregnant, in all its sickness inducing hormone crazed madness. Nine months pass as Til swells to epic proportions, and then out of the blue Til discovers she actually loves being with her baby, in spite of the screaming, nappy changing and mess she is actually dreading the end of her maternity leave. The decision Til makes sets her on a path she never dreamed of, a decision that will take her around the world and set her on a path she never anticipated.

Woven with incredible facts about pregnancy and the first year of motherhood, Mama Couture takes an honest and unflinching look at one woman’s journey into parenting and beyond. Told in the style of such great women writers as Kathy Lette and Maggie Alderson, Moya Kate will have you laughing till you cry and wishing you could be Til even if it was only for a week. This story is real, it’s funny, it’s honest and most of all it is hilarious. Few people can make parenting so funny without resorting to the usual nappy changing jokes but Moya Kate has done exactly that! Not only that, but she has given women everywhere a voice that says yes you can be a mother, but you can also be a million other things as well and you can do it all while wearing a fabulous pair of stilettos.

I hope every woman who reads Mama Couture loves it as much as I did, being a mother to a little girl myself this book spoke to me like nothing I have ever read before, part comedy, part mothering manual, part business guide, Mama Couture is the modern anthem for women everywhere, It’s Bridget Jones’ Diary meets Helen Reddy’s I Am Woman, with stiletto shoes and designer clothes.
