We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

Pregnancy, childbirth, and post-partum offer women some of the most emotionally enriching and satisfying experiences of their life. But many women entering motherhood are shocked at their lack of preparation or awareness about what that actually means for their bodies, minds, spirits, and relationships. Kimberly Johnson, a doula, post-partum recovery expert, and yoga instructor has created a wise and supportive illustrated guide that offers women a roadmap to this very important transition that can last a few months--or even a few years. She draws from her vast professional experience, as well as her own personal experience, and also a number of disciplines including Western medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, yoga, herbal medicine, energetics, and traditional (folk) remedies, among others, to create a truly rich and holistic guide. The book offers advice for pregnant women on how to prepare their body for birth; how to organize themselves and their households for the best possible transition to motherhood; simple practices to facilitate healing and restore energy; and how to strengthen relationships and aid the return to sex. Johnson also explores the complex and often conflicting emotions that arise post-partum, and explores the profound nature of childbirth and new motherhood. She helps women contextualize their experience and tap into the spiritual opportunities it can provide.

Reviews

"Birth is our inbuilt experience of initiation to self, but we are in desperate need of sage guidance throughout this otherwise overwhelming and scary transformation. Kimberly Ann Johnson lights the path to our truest, most actualized, and empowered feminine selves...because it begins in the Fourth Trimester. Every mother-to-be and mother-lover needs these pages to learn how to truly honor this mystical transition."--Kelly Brogan MD, author of the New York Times bestseller, A Mind of Your Own "In all my years as an ob/gyn, I never once met a woman who was able to get by the initiation of labor and birth and focus on the critical postpartum time frame--a time which is largely ignored in our culture. After all, most "maternity leaves" end at mere 6 weeks--nowhere near enough time to truly honor and carry out the true work of the fourth trimester. No--we tend to focus only on the birth--and if mom and baby make it through in a reasonably healthy way, we figure we're done. Not even close. In this eye opening and vital book, all those who care about women, children, and families will find a treasure trove of information and practices that are vital for the health of society. I highly recommend this book."--Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality, and Wellbeing, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom, and The Wisdom of Menopause
