Unplanned Motherhood is a non-fiction collection of short stories written by moms and dads about their funny, inspirational or motivational journey as a parent. Unplanned Motherhood is based on the web series created by Lena Sledge.

Unplanned Motherhood is a comedy web series for perfectly imperfect families, starring Lena Sledge as Layla, a wife and mother of five who gives parenting advice on her real life mommy blog. Her unique parenting style contradicting with her perfect parenting advice lends to a distinct brand of humor. With each episode we see Layla teaching her kids life lessons as she discovers more about herself and the advice she gives to her readers. Unique to this web series is the actual blog that Layla writes where she gives the perfect parenting advice. Many of her posts are followed by the tag line: To see how I really handled the situation, watch this week's episode.

This web series is special because viewers of the web series and readers of the real life blog get to interact with Layla and let her know if her advice is on the money or share their own parenting advice. To follow the Unplanned Motherhood blog, go to Stay tuned. Unplanned Motherhood debuts March 28th!!!!
