More About the Author

Cheryl L. Butler is the patient mother of eight children under the ages of 17. A freelance writer, when not partying in the laundry room or coordinating her home décor around stains and broken furniture, she writes the column "Family Zone" for local magazines in Southern Rhode Island. Author of the newly released Pregnant Women Don't Eat Cabbage, she is also published in anthology series such as Chicken Soup For The Pre-School Mother's Soul , Chicken Soup For The Chocolate Lover's Soul, and The Misadventures of Mom and Disasters of Dad. She lives in Saunderstown, RI with her go-with-the flow husband, Brian, and their fun-loving brood of five boys and three girls.



Cheryl and her husband, Brian, are the parents of eight children, but the journey to a family of 10 was not an easy one. It included:



6 years of infertility

3 miscarriages

1 adoption

1 successful fertility treatment

4 planned pregnancies

2 welcome surprise pregnancies



Having delivered seven children, Cheryl is more than qualified to write a book about the joys and hard truths about pregnancy. She is also very sensitive to women trying to conceive and adopting mothers.



Pregnant Women Don't Eat Cabbage is a thoughtful, helpful, and humorous book for expecting mothers and fathers to prepare them for what lies ahead. It is a must-read for everyone who is supporting an expecting mother who wants a funny insider's look at all that women go through to deliver babies. Enjoy this book because it truly is amazing--and sometimes hilarious and embarrassing--to become a mom.



If you're wondering if you need feathers for nesting, what varicose veins and voluptuous breasts really feel like, and what your spouse's role is in all of this, she'll happily share all she's learned from her seven visits to and from the delivery room. Finally, find out why her best advice is that pregnant women should not eat cabbage. Once you stop laughing, you'll be glad you did!

Format: Paperback
The author, Cherly Butler, gives a delightful, humorous approach to such a serious part of life for mother to be and their husbands, partners, etc. to be. I felt like I could hear the author's voice reading this funny but serious book to me. At times I had to put the book down because I was laughing so hysterically I couldn't see the words on the pages any longer. Cheryl Butler has given women and their families a real life example of the thrills and chills of pregnancy. This is a great informatibe, hiliarious sensitve, caring book written by this author, Cheryl Butler.

Side splitting humor on every page. My wife and I had tears in our eyes as we walked down the memory lane of her pregnancy. Watch out Dr. Spock!

I was fortunate enough to have a good friend from work share this book with me. I am going through my first pregnancy and this book was EXTREMELY helpful in answering those burning questions, curiosities, and worries about pregnancy. This book made me feel so comfortable with what I was experiencing, not to mention making me laugh during the ENTIRE time I read it. I highly recommend this book to women and men going through the miracle of pregnancy. I have already passed a few books along to my friends. Thank you Cheryl for shedding some laughs and sunshine on what may seem like one of life's greatest blessing.

I'll never forget being shocked waking up from a nap a day or two after my first baby arrived and NOT being able to see over my chest. No one prepared me for that! Author, Cheryl Butler, does in this book; in fact she hits on all of it from conception to arrival! Each chapter brings hilarious but real information for parents-to-be or parents-that-are looking to reminisce. No matter who, you will laugh out loud. Great advice throughout - loved it!!!!!
