Deirdre Curley – Growing Up Pregnant, A Young Woman’s Journey To Motherhood
When Deirdre Curley swapped her quiet island life on Skye for the big smoke of Glasgow at the age of 16, she dreamed of being a successful actress. Little did she know that she would soon be taking on the biggest role of her life – motherhood. Growing Up Pregnant is her “honest and reassuring” story about adjusting to pregnancy and motherhood whilst still growing up herself.
Curley said: “This is real life, there is no brushing over the parts of pregnancy that so many other pregnancy books don’t talk about. From body changes and emotional difficulties to judgements and acceptance, I hope this book will help young women feel normal in their pregnancy and re-assure them at a time that can feel daunting and overwhelming.”
