A "tale of love, heartbreak, redemption, and friendship...[The] novel centers around four new mothers, all of whom must learn to adjust their lives and their marriages to deal with the challenges of raising children. Ayinde is a...biracial newscaster who moves to Philadelphia after her husband, a star player for the NBA, is traded to the 76ers. She meets Becky, an overweight chef who plays the 'pregnant or just fat' game every time she passes a mirror, and Kelly, an overachieving event planner who has her whole life mapped out down to the most minute details, after going into labor at a prenatal yoga class. The three become fast friends, and come to rely on each other for everything from burping techniques to intense emotional support.

our women meet in a yoga for pregnant women class, and form a bond despite how different they are.

I always love Jennifer Weiner's books and this one is not an exception.

Babies, babies everywhere, and ne'er a wink of sleep. Ensemble cast of new moms who meet at baby yoga... from all points of the compass socially and economically -- and parenting styles! Touching realism. If you can get past the negative connotations of "chick lit" you might enjoy this. Personally, not my favorite of J. Weiner's works but still has some power.
