There's no magical formula for new mums, but The Best Friends' Guide to Babies can help you cope - laugh! When it comes to your new baby, everyone from Dr Spock to your mother-in-law has an armful of advice.
But no one is delivering any tips on how you can care for yourself.
Now, four-time delivery-room veteran Vicki Iovine answers your questions, calms you fears and cracks you up as only a friend can with straight advice and hilarious observations on: - Baby euphoria: is it a mind-altering drug? - 'Partner? What partner?': taking care of the big baby as well as the little baby - 'I want my old body back!': what you can fix and what you can't - The droning phenomenon: the inability to discuss anything but your baby for more than thirty seconds - Competitive mothering: coping with know-it-alls, finger pointers and others who try to 'Out-Mum' you
