When multimillion-selling vocalist and actress Kelly Rowland gave birth to her son Titan in November 2014, it was love at first sight—she honestly could not believe how beautiful he was. But, as Rowland says, she would be lying if she said she wasn’t also a little freaked out about what had just happened to her body, as well as by many overwhelming new thoughts and emotions. It was a good thing that Dr. Tristan Bickman, Rowland’s OB/GYN for the last fourteen years, was there, day and night, to answer every single question that popped into her head, no matter how raunchy. With Dr. Bickman no topic is off-limits, and she provided Rowland with the reassurance she so desperately needed, telling her over and over that, in the months after a woman gives birth, nothing is exactly strange—but nothing is necessarily normal, either. There are so many guides to what our kids need, from the time they’re the size of a poppy seed to the time they start kindergarten. But what about what the mother needs? In Whoa, Baby!, Rowland and Dr. Bickman team up to cover everything a new mom needs to know: the gross physical stuff; the hormonal and emotional stuff (“Why am I crying five times a day when this is the happiest I’ve ever been?”); and the just plain weird stuff (“Why did my nipples change color?”). Listeners will simultaneously cringe in agony and shriek with laughter at the scenarios Rowland and Dr. Bickman describe (“What happens if I fall asleep with the pump on?”; “Why does sex still hurt when I had a C-section?”; “Why are my legs so swollen?”).
