Indispensable for the New Mother,
This review is from: After the Baby's Birth...A Woman's Way to Wellness: A Complete Guide for Postpartum Women (Paperback)
I discovered this book when my son was nearly 2 months old, and wish I'd had it BEFORE he was born! It is extremely helpful for the first-time mom, giving encouragement and advice that even the most well-meaning friends and relatives might forget. I especially appreciated the chapter on eating, which includes a lot of good thoughts about body image (i.e., adjusting your expectations after becoming a mom). After reading it I sent a copy to my younger sister, whose first baby was born 3 months after mine.
I hope the publisher reprints it (and maybe invites the author to update it) so more mamas can benefit from Robin Lim's wisdom!
