“A fantastic roller coaster ride that left me wanting more” Sarah Loewen, Yoyobelly
“Perfect for any mom wanting to take a break from the everyday” Christine Pilkington, Vancouver Mom

“They show us that their collective embarrassments, health anxieties and frustrations are ours too” John Jane, Review Vancouver
“I laughed until I cried. And then I did it a few dozen more times before the lights came up…these women hit the nail on the head when it comes to motherhood” Marilyn Belsham, A Lot of Loves
