Book Details

What should you expect when you’re done expecting? Too many of us think that there’s no way to fix everyday concerns after a pregnancy, such as pelvic floor issues, exhaustion and burnout, and getting back into a fitness routine. But it’s simply not true. With this revolutionary resource in hand, you’ll learn what happens to the body during pregnancy and childbirth, common changes in function and feeling, and solutions for healing. Your Postpartum Body was written with expertise by a pelvic floor physical therapist who wants you to know that you can feel like yourself again-physically and mentally. You’ve probably heard plenty of anecdotes about what might help or hurt (to Kegel or not to Kegel?), but they’re not necessarily backed up with medical expertise and practical advice. Your Postpartum Body fills that gap as a complete reference guide for every eventuality, from making sure you’re getting enough fluids to troubleshooting breastfeeding to pelvic floor recovery, with helpful illustrations and photos throughout. While your body is undoubtedly different (after all, you just grew a human!), you do not have to live with pain, incontinence, weakness, or nursing/feeding stress. You now hold the tools and techniques you need to heal and nourish your body and mind.
