Good News and Giveaway!

I'm not going to hide it - this post is nothing but a shameless plug for my new book "Preparing your home and life for baby" ;-)

It has been on my wishlist for some time, so writing my first book has been a fantastic experience and achievement for me. I'm sure you can understand my excitement and desire to share it with you all! This is the first of a series of four books I am busy with:

  1. Preparing your home and life for baby
  2. Organising your home and life with baby
  3. Managing your home and life with a busy family
  4. Freeing your home and life from clutter and chaos

If you are time-poor, or simply overwhelmed with the sheer number of decisions you need to make while preparing for the arrival of your baby, then "Preparing your home and life for baby" is here to help. It serves as a basic guide to help navigate through all these decisions. Broken down into key areas like sleeping, changing, feeding, and even budgeting, I offer practical advice, ‘green’ nursery tips, and checklists to make your preparations that much easier, saving you time and money.

Pregnancy book, baby planner, planning for baby

A lovely lady by the name of Kirsten has recently reviewed the book and had this to say:
"I am 25 weeks pregnant and just finished reading Beverley's book. I feel a huge sense of relief! Two weeks ago I went to the baby store but left empty handed and overwhelmed; not knowing where to start, or what was essential versus gimmicky. Her advice is well-informed and up-to-date, while being empowering and objective, with an understanding that every mum & baby is different. I feel so much clearer and more confident about where to start and I'm ready to return to the stores today with my printed checklists in hand. Thanks Beverley!"

The book is now available for sale as an ebook and soft cover from my website:

To celebrate the launch, I am giving one lucky reader a free copy if the ebook - all you have to do is comment below on why you NEED to read it! Of course if you are not pregnant yourself please share with your friends, family and colleagues who are, and give them the chance to win. Everyone who comments will go into the draw, and the winner will be announced next Saturday (3 August). Good luck!


  1. While I am not (yet) pregnant, we have 20 -yes 20! -friends and family members who have given birth or are due in 2013. I would love to help out in planning, especially since much baby and maternity marketing seems to be focused on spending as much as possible on things that might not even be used. It's hard to cut through the spin.
    Even getting ideas about the best and most useful gift to give or help I can be would be great. Thanks for this much needed resource!

  2. WOW 20!! That should keep you all busy :)
    If you decide to buy the book I would love to hear your feedback - thanks so much

  3. I guess that's not a giveaway then...

    1. Hi Kaytee, unfortunately you commented on the post a few days after the giveaway had ended - sorry!
