    Book details

When Beth Teitell first learned she was pregnant, her mind raced with important questions: Does a handful of Milk Duds count as a serving of calcium? Where do movie stars buy their maternity clothes, and is $95 way too much to spend on a cotton T-shirt if you’:re not routinely–:okay, ever–:photographed by paparazzi? Then, just as she was beginning to imagine her maternity leave as a long, paid vacation from work, a time to catch up on reading and old movies, she was caught completely off guard–:by the arrival of a baby. And then the trouble really began.

From Here to Maternity
offers a hilarious, highly perceptive look at the experience of becoming a mom, exposing the secrets of modern parenting that your doctor will fail to warn you about and your fellow mothers will be too embarrassed to admit. From learning “:The Rules”: for playdating other mommies, to figuring out the New Mommy Math (a half hour of educational TV only counts as ten minutes toward your child’:s daily allowance), Teitell explores what it’:s like to be a mother in a culture responsible for strollers that cost as much as a month’:s rent. Chock-full of practical advice on motherhood’:s biggest challenges–:what to sing if you don’:t know any lullabies (the Brady Bunch theme song is a perfectly valid choice): the delicate art of picking up babysitters: and the ethics of returning a baby gift in order to buy yourself a little present with the merchandise credit–:From Here to Maternity tells it like it is with consummate style and laugh-out-loud irreverence.

A winning, utterly original look at the lighter side of the most serious job on earth, From Here to Maternity is the ultimate treat for mothers everywhere–:second only to a hot bath and the phone number of a good babysitter.
