Access Hollywood’s Nancy O’Dell is releasing a book of tips for moms-to-be next April, In Full of Life: Mom to Mom Tips I Wish Someone Had Told Me When I Was Pregnant, her publisher Simon Spotlight Entertainment has announced. Nancy, who gave birth to her first child, Ashby in June 2007, will share everything from unusual cravings to what really goes on in the delivery room,
“When I was pregnant with my precious baby girl, my biggest craving was for information,” Nancy told PEOPLE. “I read every pregnancy book I could get my hands on, but quickly discovered there are many things that are not covered in those books. I wanted to share in a simple, fun and straightforward book all those crazy, unexpected, sometimes disgusting, sometimes hilarious things that happen during pregnancy. That way, new moms-to-be won’t have to be as surprised, or panicked, as I was. These are mom-to-mom tips I wish someone had told me!”
Nancy’s own mom Betty, who passed away in June from Lou Gehrig’s disease, also plays a role in the book,
“After my mom passed away, I found a scrapbook she had made of all of Ashby’s ultrasounds, so I know how much that meant to her. And it reminded me that Ashby has the perfect angel watching over her…always!”
Nancy is married to business executive Keith Zubchevich. She is a spokesperson for the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s ALS division.
