Happy Mum Happy Baby by Giovanna Fletcher

Happy Mum Happy Baby by Giovanna Fletcher


A positive and uplifting book about what it is to be a mother and all things mum by Giovanna Fletcher.

Being a mum is an incredible journey, a remarkable experience that changes how we look, how we feel, who we are. As mothers we are strong, protective, proud. We feel a love like no other.

But being a parent can be hard too. It challenges us physically, mentally, emotionally. There are the days where just managing to fit a shower in amidst the endless feeding, entertaining young children and surviving on a lack of sleep feels like an achievement. With so many people ready to offer 'advice' on the best way to parent, it can feel like you are getting it all wrong.

Since Giovanna and her husband Tom Fletcher have had their sons Buzz and Buddy, they have been sharing glimpses of their family life. With an infectiously positive outlook and happy take on all things mum-related, Giovanna has developed a following of fellow parents and mums-to-be.

This is not a book about how to have the perfect family experience - Gi would be the first to admit she is winging it just as much as the rest of us - instead it is an honest, upbeat and incredibly personal account of her own experience of having a family. In Happy Mum, Happy Baby Giovanna shares her own journey through parenthood and in doing so, she looks at what it is to be a mother today, encourages you to be confident in yourself as a parent and celebrates how putting a focus on being a happy and confident mum can really make for a happy baby.

Why we love Giovanna Fletcher

If you've been following BearHugs for a little while now, you might know that Founder and Chief Sender of Hugs Faye was a finalist for the National Prince's Trust Awards in the Enterprise category.  The day of the awards at the London Palladium was incredibly special for a huge number of reasons, but something that made it especially memorable for Faye was getting to spend time with Prince's Trust Ambassadors Giovanna and Tom Fletcher. If you've followed either online you will know how much positivity they put into the world. Faye found they were every bit as lovely (if not lovelier!) in person as they comes across on social media. Here at BearHugs, we hugely admire Giovanna's kindness, sincerity and openness. The fact that she also supports a charity very close to our hearts is a cherry on top. We're proud to offer Happy Mum Happy Baby and are sure that it could bring comfort and a smile to a new mum as they learn to navigate the world of parenthood.
