MumLife; noun: the inescapable swirling vortex of love, guilt, joy, annoyance, laughter and boredom that makes up the life of a mum.
Louise Pentland has been through a lot. From a traumatic birth with her first daughter, to single motherhood, to finding love again and having a second child, Louise's parenting journey has been full of surprises.
Discussing the realities most working mums face, plus the impact of maternal mental health, Louise is on a mission to make other mums feel less alone, and very much heard. She beautifully reveals her own imperfect but perfect route to motherhood, as well as the loss of her mum so early in her life, how it shaped her and the mother she became.
Reflective, uplifting and with her signature hilarious wit, MumLife will share Louise's ups and downs, reflecting on her route to motherhood and what she has learnt along the way. This is the honest truth, from someone who's been there and experienced it all.

Will listen to it again!
A short book that is packed full of valuable wisdom for all types of women (or men?). Louise bares her soul and spares no details in telling of some of the most monumental chapters of her life. There’s light and shade and so many relatable moments that make the reader feel understood too. You’ll finish the book feeling like you’ve spent time catching up with an old friend and inspired to be the best mum/woman you can be. I know I’ll be listening to it again!
