Pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum 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.
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. She also explores the complex and often conflicting emotions that arise postpartum and the profound nature of childbirth and new motherhood. She helps women contextualize their experience and tap into the spiritual opportunities it can provide.
In this book launch webinar, Kimberly Johnson, a doula, postpartum recovery expert, and yoga instructor, presents her recent publication.
