Review

...it's a must-have for all women, not just mothers.
- T Magazine
The New York Times Style Magazine


A great mom's guide to getting your hot, pre-baby body back. Heather does a fantastic job providing the tools and resources towards living healthy while reclaiming all the wonderful benefits of being a woman.
Jenny McCarthy, The New York Times best-selling author, actress and mother

Body Back offers A-Z pregnancy help.
- PEOPLE.com Moms & Babies

'She does a great job of covering all aspects of motherhood, not just physical...Her goal is to give moms an all-inclusive single source for a "full service tune-up" for mind, body and soul.'
- SideTracked Mom

Body Back should be the companion book to What to Expect When Expecting. It's the Bible to after Baby in my opinion, and its tagline is simple and personal and every woman who's had a baby needs to read it: Helping you feel like a woman again.
- She Knows, Real Moms Guide

About the Author

Heather Porter was born and educated in London and Kent. She is a mother of four boys, ages four to fourteen, and stepmother to two girls. In addition to managing a bustling family, she is extremely dedicated to her charity work spanning the globe including her own foundation, which provides for children with disabilities.

More About the Author

As a mother of four, Heather Porter knows what it is like to watch your body fall apart after pregnancy. Over the years, she searched for a single manual for the female body, a mother's encyclopedia. When she could not find anything like it on the market, she set out to write it herself.

Heather recalls, "For me, it wasn't just about shedding the pregnancy pounds but about learning how to be attractive and healthy, both emotionally and physically again."

What followed was a journey of self-improvement, with plenty of highs and lows along the way. She tried the A-Z of exercises and treatments, some resulting in hilarious stories, from spinning to colon hydrotherapy, from yoga to wheatgrass drinks. Heather kept a diary that documented her thoughts and experiences and noted what worked and what didn't.

By sticking to her regime, she began to reap the rewards as the pounds shifted and her overall well‑being improved.

Body Back draws together fifteen years of Heather's personal experiences, including working with professionals from various fields of expertise, many of whom have contributed to this book.

Heather Porter's Body Back is such a refreshing change to anything else out there. Her advice is upfront and honest - something we all deserve. Not only is this the perfect companion for any new mother but it is also an old friend for a mother of many years - with teenagers! It belongs next to your medical dictionary or on your bedside table. It's the perfect gift.

If you are a parent you know how much your body changes after pregnancy and birth and just being a mom. I got sagging skin, a pot belly, wrinkles, my hair is so messed up, extra padded around and not to mention the not so perky boobs anymore. Yep I am not that perfect thin firm perky body I was 14 years ago but hey I got kids out of the deal right haha. So who wants to live with all that now your done with having the kid and babies? I don't and I know with the big health kicks everyone is on they don't want to either. So I got some good news for you. There is this awesome book called BODY BACK: The Mother's Handbook to Medical, Physical, and Emotional Well Being. This book I couldn't put down. It had so much info. I have taken nutrition and biology and anatomy in college and I have learned alot about the body and its needs and what surprised me most about this book is it was dead on in what it says to try and do and the whys. I learned even more then I thought I could learn and I cant wait to try some things out. I want to try the one day raw food diet cleanse and some of the awesome exercises and menus plans. So check this out its available at Amazon, Barnes and noble and more. So get it today you will be glad you did!
