The perfect gift for expectant mothers and new mums, whether it's her first baby or her fifth. 'I read every single poem and wished that I'd had this book when I was pregnant, and feeding a baby, and watching her grow.' Sophie Heawood, author of The Hungover Games
A collection of honest, fierce and beautiful poems about being a mother, from pregnancy and birth to growing up and leaving home. Curated by acclaimed anthologist Ana Sampson, Night Feeds and Morning Songs examines motherhood from all angles, capturing the mess and the madness, to the joy and the wonder.
Immerse yourself in classic verse from Carol Ann Duffy, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Jackie Kay and Sylvia Path, to poems from bold new voices Kate Baer, Liz Berry, Nikita Gill and Imogen Russell Williams to name but a few.
