Join us as we discuss 'The Naked Truth About Having a Baby' with debut author, Jernine Russell
The Naked Truth About Having A Baby is a new book which depicts a heartfelt, personal account of a young woman's emotional roller coaster journey into motherhood.
It's often said that having a baby should come with a manual, but this isn't one of those. Instead, the author gives an honest and open account of some of the pivotal stages of the transition into motherhood. She delves into the feelings and emotions that all new mothers go through, but rarely, truly speak of. From pregnancy to bringing baby home, to baby weight, to childcare, she tackles it all, candidly but with compassion.
Jernine is a mother of three and on a journey of re-discovering herself. She has spent the past 15 years working with disadvantaged and disenfranchised young people as a youth worker, then with both young and adult offenders as a probation officer. After a tough transition into motherhood in 2007, she felt compelled to share her thoughts and feelings with other first time mothers using one of her many skills: writing.
Fear, self-doubt and more babies meant that it took her 10 years to complete her first book. Despite the arduous task of juggling motherhood, a husband and a challenging job, she persevered to get it to publication, and along the way founded the company She Reigns. She Reigns’ core values are to empower, uplift and encourage others to reach their potential and realise their dreams.
