Review of The Curvy Girls Baby Club by Michele Gorman - Five *

Blurb:  Life, love and a Christmas due date 

Ellie is fresh back from her honeymoon and can’t wait to share her news with her best friends Katie and Jane. To everyone’s surprise, mother-of-two Jane has news of her own… The women are due a day apart and Katie can’t wait to be an honorary auntie to the babies. 

But it’s hard to keep your sense of humour, not to mention your self-esteem, in the face of haemorrhoids and elasticated waistbands. Add a clingy mother-in-law, a career in cardiac arrest and a sex life that makes Mother Theresa look lusty, and soon their lives are as out of control as their bodies. 

As the co-founders of The Curvy Girls Club, where loving yourself is the only rule, will the friends be able to practice what they preach? 

This is a novella of approximately 120 pages in print.


This is yet another wonderful story from Michele. It follows directly on from The Curvy Girls Club and is as full of laughter as the first book. It follows the pregnancies of Ellie and Jane with another surprise. As you can imagine, gaining pregnancy weight is something of a problem, and I found it really good reading to follow the psychological effects of weight gain, through no fault of their own!

The birth scenes are particularly funny and even the mother-in-law from hell features in them! 

Really loved this funny and sweet novella.
