The Antenatal Group by Amy Bratley RRP £7.99

Seven months’ pregnant, Mel is dumped by her partner and is suddenly facing parenthood alone.

But at her antenatal class, she meets a group of women who quickly become invaluable friends in the terrifying new world of birth and babies…

Katy – rich, successful and with the dream husband – has her delivery planned to perfection.

But she soon realizes that nature doesn’t always follow suit.

Lexi – loud and confident – is coping well on her own.

Until the only man she has ever loved reappears at the most unexpected moment.

Rebecca is the youngest of the group – not long out of her teens, in fact – but she’s determined to hold onto her dreams, even without her family’s support.

Erin already seems to be an expert on babies, but her quiet nature hides a secret tragedy.

When you’re contemplating pain relief, birth positions and sleepless nights you really need a good friend – or four.
