"Knocked Up Abroad floats and jabs, amuses and disturbs, informs and questions. At the heart of it is a true and lovely heart. Ultimately as scary as it may seem to leave one's home country, one never really leaves home at all. Home is a place you carry with you... No, home is a place first lived in a womb then carried in arms then held by hands. Home is family and family is home. I loved this book from the bottom of my heart." - Hubert O'Hearn, By the Book Reviews
"I enjoyed every chapter in Knocked Up Abroad, and I also enjoyed the fact that they were all written in their own style, the style of the author of that particular section. It made every chapter very personal, a personal story not just of giving birth or bringing up a child, but of doing it in their own way in a culture that wasn't their own." - Clara Wiggins, author of The Expat Partner's Survival Guide
"To all the Mums and Dads out there experiencing overseas birthing, you are not alone and the most important message I gained from reading this collection was, don't doubt yourself. Use your intuition, if in doubt say no, and make the choices that feel right to you. This is a must-have book in any expat parent's collection." - Keri from Baby Globetrotters
