Whether you’re only just becoming a mum for the first time or you have children who are growing up faster than you could have ever imagined, motherhood can feel like the most joyful and yet the most daunting of times. But you’re not alone.

From the moment I knew my first baby was a girl I started to plan, hope and dream. I couldn’t wait to experience that special bond, but I also wondered how I’d feel about being a working mum, how I’d hold on to the person I am.

I also knew that the world has changed so much since I was growing up. What advice, values and role models would help give my daughter the confidence and strength to cope with all that might come her way – and to give her an open mind and warm heart? And how would I guide her through the issues girls face today?

This is my journey in motherhood: my experiences, hopes and fears – with my mum’s stories of raising me, a parenting expert’s advice and empowering exercises – to guide you from those first wobbly moments to being a happy, healthy mum and raising feisty, independent children who aren’t afraid to be themselves – and to go for the life they want.

Katie Piper

From Mother to Daughter is about motherhood, about what you learn as a mother and the things you would tell your daughter and most of all it’s Katie and Diane’ Piper’s celebration of the incredible power of mother-daughter relationships.
