Description

Join Pinter & Martin and Deirdre Curley for the launch of Deirdre's first book Growing Up Pregnant.

"OMG, I’m pregnant! What do I do now?

Like most nineteen-year-olds, Deirdre Curley was thinking about boys, parties and independence. She was living in Glasgow, care-free and falling in love with her ideal guy. She didn't expect to find herself staring at the pink line on an at-home pregnancy test. But suddenly there she was: definitely pregnant and wondering what on earth she should do next.

In this warm and witty memoir of falling in love and falling pregnant, between stories of heartache, growing up and taking the plunge into parenthood, you'll find all the information and resources you need to help you at each stage of your pregnancy, to make sure you're doing what's best for you and your baby. The trimester-by-trimester guide takes readers through Deirdre's own experience and provides practical advice from a registered midwife about exactly what is happening to your body (and when), and what you should be doing to ensure you stay on the right track.

Growing Up Pregnant is a must-have book for all first time mums no matter what stage in life you are at. From party time to nappy time, tan marks to stretch marks, sanitary pads to breast pads, romantic dates to play dates, prosseco bottles to baby bottles – this book will give you the knowledge and tools you need to survive the changes your body and life goes through during pregnancy whilst also empowering you with the confidence to enjoy your own journey into motherhood."

Deirdre Curley grew up on the Isle of Skye, and moved to Glasgow at the age of 16 to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. Following a stint of acting training in New York she discovered she was pregnant. Deirdre, now aged 27, works for the British Heart Foundation Scotland and lives in Glasgow with her husband and young son. Deirdre started writing Growing Up Pregnant, A Young Woman’s Journey To Motherhood with the intention to support and empower other young women in a similar position.
