The You Sexy Mother books redefine what it means to be a mum
today…one who is sexy, vibrant, healthy, happy and engaged in a life
that has meaning and value.
When she became a mother herself, Jodie Hedley-Ward failed to find
any book that supported her own beliefs about what motherhood could,
and should, be, so she set about writing one herself. You Sexy Mother
was the triumphant result.
Since then, thousands of women have read and absorbed the You Sexy
Mother philosophy, then sought further information and contact with
other women through the author’s busy website yousexymother.com.au
Jodie has also received hundreds of emails from women whose lives
have been positively changed through reading the book and by adapting
many of the practical suggestions to their own lives.
Inspired by these women, Jodie created You Sexy Mother: The Journal
($24.99, March 2010), a beautiful but practical follow-up to her first
book, offering sensible advice on self-perception, self-respect, the
importance of relationships, simplifying your life, creativity through
motherhood and making use of community resources.
The Journal is also a workbook, containing numerous reflection
questions, quotes and thoughts designed to stimulate inner growth and
change. Jodie has also updated the transformational ten-day turnaround
plan that appeared in her first book, making this book even more useful.
Jodie’s publicity tour to Sydney in April/May will coincide with the
release of results of the Australia Motherhood Study, which Jodie and
clinical psychologist, Dr Angela Huntsman launched on Mothers’ Day
- Mothers were asked via an anonymous on-line questionnaire
to talk about how they think and feel about their role as mothers. Both
researchers will be giving a keynote address in New York City this May,
at the Association for Research on Mothering (ARM)/Mamapalooza
“Representing Motherhood: Mothers in the Arts, Literature, Media and
Popular Culture” conference, May 20-22, 2010, New York City.

I personally have read the 2 books.
It is a “real” book about our own lives, our choices and the difference from before kids to afterwards, and choices about being a “real” woman and a mother. Whether you are a working mum, stay at home mum or whatever, its about what your heart is telling you, your choices and not anyone elses. I wish I had read this book years ago (if onl;y it was written!) I left a corporate, ladder climbing career in health to be a mum working from home. I grappled with it at the time, then embraced it. It felt right, though pressures from many other streams seeped in at times. I hit rock bottom at the stage when after years of trying for a baby, was blessed with twin girls, who, though management of my pregnancy I became septic and so did my girls. they were born premature, struggled and passed away. I lost a sense of self at that time. I wish I was able to have read this book back then. I went on to have another (torrid) pregnancy and climbed up, but this book would of helped me sour with a self acceptance, perception and self, have courage and affirmations I so needed at the time. A very well written book and I would recommend this to any mother out there. There is no manual when it comes to mothering. No right or wrong way. There will be good days, exceptional days, bad days and extraordinary days… and thats ok!! Jodie helps us look at our role as a mother and move forward to being the mum, woman WE WANT to be.
