Evans deftly handles the physical and emotional changes that come with being pregnant, looking at the practicalities of every stage as well as the challenges that may arise. Her no-nonsense, quirky and accessible text is illustrated throughout with detailed artwork to guide the reader through the intricacies of human reproduction, whilst her customary laugh-out-loud cartoons demystify the complexities of pregnancy and birth.
The book includes: a graphic guide to conception; practical help for those trying to conceive; early pregnancy advice; information on abortion rights, miscarriage support, screening and scans, physical preparations for birth and the art of birth.
"They say a picture speaks a thousand words – and that’s certainly true of Bump, by Kate Evans, that guides you through the complex emotional roller coaster of conception, pregnancy and birth (not to mention loss,) with help from witty, intelligent and sometimes graphic cartoons." - Prima Baby: Book of the Month
"I used to recommend Ina May’s Guide to childbirth as top choice for all pregnant women but I think Bump by Kate Evans has trumped this. A must have." - Hannah Robertson, doula, Calm Yorkshire Birth
