What to expect

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.

Critics Review

  • 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. I longed for such a book of observations on what it is to make a human.

    Sophie Heawood, author of The Hungover Games
  • A beautiful collection, capturing that soft everyday magic of having babies – it’s nice to have comradeship in this very particular type of love.

    Imogen Hermes Gowar, author of The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock
  • If any book could distil the tender furious overwhelm of motherhood, I think it’s this one.

    Imogen Russell Williams
  • Ana Sampson’s collection of poems is just the thing to dip into after the night-time feed.
