Kaz Cooke offers no bossy-boots rules, just the sanest, wittiest advice you'll ever get, plus lots of cartoons. This fully updated third edition includes news sections on Getting Ready: advice on trying for a baby and Fertility troubles and assisted conception: what might be causing fertility troubles and what you can do about it, plus the process of IVF or other assisted conception if it's needed. You'll find expanded sections on genetic problems, the caesarean debate, how to care for premature babies, choosing the right nappies for you plus information especially for partners from boosting their fertility to what they should do during labour.

The perfect tonic for the terrified first-timer Independent on Sunday

Kaz Cooke

Kaz Cooke is an Australian author, cartoonist and radio broadcaster.

Her background is in news and feature journalism in Melbourne, Sydney and Darwin. Her career began a month after she left school, in 1981, at The Age newspaper and since then she’s written for heaps of other major daily newspapers (The Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian and the Canberra Times) and magazines (including Who Weekly and the Women’s Weekly).

Since becoming a Mum in 1998 she has mainly worked from home writing books in her pyjamas; and still doesn’t know why there were books in her pyjamas (boom, boom). There have been some scuttling forays into radio shows with varying degrees of success (from “this is fun!” to “I’d rather eat my own shins with a fork”). Kaz illustrates her own work with cartoons, since 1983 often featuring Hermoine the Modern Girl.

She continues to write books with her trademark mix of meticulous research and trustworthy information untainted by commercial interests, and blended with her friendly tone, honesty, sharp wit, and pyjamas. Kaz lives in Melbourne with her family and enjoys toast.
