Independent publisher Pinter & Martin is to publish Growing Up Pregnant, A Young Woman’s Journey To Motherhood by Glasgow-based author Deirdre Curley in September 2017.
The publisher holds world rights to the title.
Deirdre Curley was an aspiring actress when she unexpectedly fell pregnant at the age of 18. Growing Up Pregnant is her "honest and reassuring" story about adjusting to pregnancy and motherhood whilst still growing up herself. "Sharing candid details about her own experience she brings to life the challenges and adventures of a young woman’s journey to motherhood", the publisher said.
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."
Growing Up Pregnant will be published by Pinter & Martin on 14th September 2017 in paperback original and e-book.
