And now she’s sharing her secrets with expectant mamas in her latest endeavor, Mommy IQ: The Complete Guide to Pregnancy, in which she chronicles the monthly milestones leading up to baby’s big arrival.
Divided up into chapters that focus on everything from prenatal testing and ultrasounds to proper nutrition and the changes between your body, baby and partner, Pope balances her own witty accounts of past pregnancies with professional advice.
The result? A book, which she launched exclusively at Destination Maternity last week, that provides future moms with plenty of tips and tricks to tackling pregnancy by easing a few of their greatest fears and answering some burning questions.
“The problem is everybody wants to do the best job they can do… so the anxiety is overwhelming,” she says of pending parenthood. “If you just have a book to point you in the right direction I think you can really feel equipped and confident.”
