Book Description

The first few weeks and months after a baby's birth can be a wonderful and confusing time. While trying to discover the best ways to care for their child, new (and experienced) mothers often neglect their own health. It is essential, however, that mothers pay as much attention to their own wellness as they pay to their baby's health and happiness during this crucial time. In a completely revised and updated edition of AFTER THE BABY'S BIRTH, childcare and women's-wellness expert Robin Lim guides mothers through the best methods of mother and baby postpartum care, including parental nurturing, breastfeeding, the role of the father, nutrition, and early sensory education. Focusing on natural and wholesome practices, AFTER THE BABY'S BIRTH is a sensitive, practical guide to post-pregnancy health.

Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal
A comprehensive guide to dealing with a phase of childbirth that usually garners only a chapter in other books on preparing for the big event. Well written, and researched while the author was pregnant with her fourth child, this book is full of common sense and practical suggestions for dealing with the major changes in a woman's body and life in the postpartum period. Although some readers may be put off by the references to Indian and Far Eastern words and philosophies, the overall gentleness and sagacity make this a very suitable purchase for libraries. Highly recommended.
