About The Book

Taking us on her less conventional journey of being mothered and reaching motherhood, Not a Fictional Mum asks what it is that really makes a mum?

Inspiring, topical and painfully funny, we follow Not a Fictional Mum through a dysfunctional childhood into foster care, struggling with infertility and navigating the adoption process. She reveals the policies and statistics that led her to campaign for change, and what emerges is a picture of resilience, determination and hope.

A personal memoir and a manifesto for change, What Makes a Mum? looks at family beyond genetics and offers a guiding hand to anyone in the long and sometimes agonising pursuit of becoming a mother.

‘Funny, clever . . . but above all else real and beautifully written’ Lisa Faulkner

‘Opened my eyes to a whole other part of being a mother’ Rochelle Humes

‘Delivered with such warmth, passion and compassion’ Anna Mathur
