Whatever your age, becoming a mum for the first time b rings excitement, anxiety and numerous challenges...
But how do you cope when you discover you're old enough to be the mother of everyone in your NCT group? The story of one woman, one baby, a slipped disc and rather too many wrinkles, The Secret Diary of a New Mum (Aged 43 1/4) follows the tale of a midlife mum as she tries to make the transition from experienced TV producer to utterly inexperienced parent.
Whether deftly side-stepping questions about age and baby number two, or weeping as younger counterparts ping back into their size ten jeans within thirty seconds of giving birth, Cari approaches the shared experiences of an ever-increasing number of mothers with insight, humour and honesty.

'Hilariously candid.' Daily Mail
'Brilliantly observed... funny, embarrassing and yet cruelly honest. It feels good to laugh about it, now the stitches are out.' Fay Ripley
'Warm, witty and very, very wise the perfect antidote to all those po-faced pregnancy books. As a fellow ''Geriatric Mother'' I found myself constantly laughing and nodding along in agreement.' Imogen Edwards-Jones
