While there is a wealth of advice for new mums on caring for their babies the same is not true for postpartum health. Fulfilling this vital need, After Birth is the ultimate postnatal primer for women facing changes to their bodies after having a baby. Addressing issues great and small – from hair loss and stretch marks, to bladder and bowel leaks, painful sex, diastasis recti and mental health – researcher and writer Jessica Hatcher-Moore brings together straight-talking advice on preparation for childbirth, healing, and recovery in the weeks, months and even years that follow. She also offers insights for partners, whose role is often overlooked at this critical time. Blending knowledge from traditional medicine, alternative therapies, midwives and physiotherapists, with experiences from mothers, here is balanced advice with no agenda. Taking a broad look at what women can do for themselves at home, and also when to seek expert help, After Birth will reassure, inform and empower women to reclaim their post-birth bodies.
