Michelle was joined by writer Sarah Davis to talk about her book of poems called Baby Daze.
SARAH reading three of her poems
- Getting to Know You
- Mum’s and Babies Group
- Happy Days
‘Baby Daze’ (recommended in ‘Mother & ‘Baby’ magazine’s ‘3 of the best funny books’ feature) reflects the humorous & the sentimental experiences of being a new mum.
Covering a range of topics that parents of all ages can relate to and based on my own experiences, the poems are short, accessible and easy to read – even for sleep deprived new mums! I was inspired by being a new mum to our son, Matthew, with all the feelings and emotions that came with it. I didn’t set out to write a book initially. The poems started as spontaneous thoughts and outpourings in the early hours of the morning after being up for 3am feeds. Friends and family read them and suggested I try to get them published, saying that they evoked feelings in them as they read them, recalling and recounting memories of early days with their own children. Available from Amazon Waterstones & independent bookshops.
