An audiobook guide to help support women through post-partum healing on the physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual levels.

This holistic audiobook guide offers practical advice to support women through postpartum healing on the physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual levels--and provides women with a roadmap to this very important transition that can last from a few months to a few years.

Kimberly Ann Johnson draws from her vast professional experience as a doula, postpartum consultant, yoga teacher, body worker, and women's health care advocate, and from the healing traditions of Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, and herbalism--as well as her own personal experience--to cover:

• how you can prepare your body for birth;

• how you can organize yourself and your household for the best possible transition to motherhood;

• simple practices and home remedies to facilitate healing and restore energy;

• how to strengthen relationships and aid the return to sex;

• learning to exercise safely postpartum;

• carrying your baby with comfort;

• exploring the complex and often conflicting emotions that arise postpartum;

and much more.

Includes a bonus PDF with worksheets, illustrations, and recipes

While this book points out very important societal impacts on new mothers, it’s written (and narrated) in a way that victimizes them instead of empowering. I found myself, in my 2nd and 3rd trimesters of pregnancy, feeling scorned and bitter by events described in this book that didn’t actually happen to me. While it brought awareness to me of the possible negative outcomes, this book was so heavily negative that I had to reach to outside support to rebalance.

gorgeous book, full of treasures, both for preparing for an optimal postpartum experience and to integrate a past experience which was not ideal. every woman should read, make notes and revisit this book often throughout their PP journey. thanks Kimberly for your magnificent work
