Bump 2 Baby is a colourful, easy to use guide which explains everything there is to know about being pregnant and giving birth. From how to stay healthy, feelings, what happens at a scan, and life with the baby, it's packed with information and advice for young mums. The journeys of three characters, all in different circumstances – Dionne, aged 17, Sarah, aged 15 and Louise, aged 20 – bring the book to life and help to make it easy to read and understand.

This is the perfect companion for young mothers-to-be: fun to use, easy to read and full of all the vital information about pregnancy. It is ideal for midwives, social workers, youth workers, teachers and counsellors to give to or recommend to the young person they're working with.

This instantly making this book very relatable to any young mum. From how to stay healthy, what you might be feeling, what happens at a scan and life with your baby – this colourful, easy-to-use guide is packed with information and advice for young mums.

This is the perfect companion for young mothers-to-be: fun to use, easy to read and full of all the vital information about pregnancy. It will also be ideal for midwives, social workers, youth workers, counsellors, teachers and all those in contact with young pregnant women.

This book really is unique in its field and one we here at MummyPages HQ regard as a triumph. Although the book is targeted at young women who become pregnant – it is perfect for women and even partners of all ages. It is straight-talking and describes each stage in plain and understandable terms.

'I love how visual Bump 2 Baby is. It is perfect for functional readers or people with literacy difficulties. Whenever I show any mums-to-be this book they instantly engage with it. In 15 years working as a specialist midwife for teenagers, including some time co-ordinating the National Teenage Pregnancy Midwifery Network, I have never found a pregnancy guide like this one. Highly recommended.'

'From Bump 2 Baby, by Paul McCabe has been written in conjunction with Birmingham Youth Service, and aims to offer support and guidance to young mums and mums to be. Following the stories and case studies of three characters, aged 15, 17 and 20, the book covers pregnancy from a young person's perspective, covering areas such as scans and tests, staying healthy during pregnancy, labour and early life with your baby... written in a friendly and down to earth tone... The book is presented through images, with short easy to read chunks of information, making it easy to pick up and put down or read when you have a spare few minutes... really informative and helpful and we would therefore recommend this for any young mum or family of someone who is pregnant and may need a little extra support.'
