*Kelly Rowland has written a guide for first-time mothers, and she’s set to publish her first book called “Whoa, Baby!: A Guide for New Moms Who Feel Overwhelmed and Freaked Out (And Wonder What the #*@& Just Happened.”
Rowland wrote the book with the help of OB-GYN Dr. Tristan Emily Bickman. “Dr. Bickman and I wanted to create an answer to what to expect after childbirth. No one told me what to expect physically, emotionally, or mentally,” said Rowland (quotes via Rap-Up). “The purpose of Whoa, Baby! is to comfort the mother and give her knowledge of what’s going on with her. We cover everything!”
The former Destiny’s Child member is the mother of her 2-year-old son Titan Jewell whose father is Tim Witherspoon. According to the book synopsis, “[Rowland] was little freaked out about what had happened to her body and the overwhelming new thoughts and emotions” after she gave birth to her son.

The book will explore all aspects of motherhood. “From falling asleep with the pump on to swollen legs and lack of sleep, Rowland and Dr. Bickman cover every surprising challenge that new moms face,” reads the synopsis.
“It was just necessary,” she told Rolling Stone earlier this year when first asked about the book. “I saw one part of something and I didn’t see the next part, and I wanted to be the one to provide the information. So, my goal in my life is whenever I do these business ventures, I like to collaborate with women, so for my book, I’m actually working with my doctor. I’m very, very excited.”
“Whoa, Baby!” is set to hit stores on March 28 through Da Capo Lifelong Books. You can pre-order the book at decapopress.com.
