Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Bing, a noted childbirth expert who introduced the Lamaze method to the United States, has now teamed up with coauthor Colman to help new mothers lose the weight they gained during their pregnancy. Discussing ``the special concerns regarding diet and exercise for the postpartum woman,'' they emphasize the importance of establishing healthy patterns for both mother and baby. Their book is divided into three parts--the immediate postpartum period, the next five weeks, and special concerns about breast-feeding. Specific exercises and suggestions about diet and foods are given in each part. For illustrative purposes, Bing and Colman include anecdotes from new mothers. Their very readable and understandable book fulfills its expressed goal of being a guide to postpartum weight loss and fitness. Recommended for consumer health/patient education collections.-- Mary J. Jarvis, Methodist Hosp. Medical Lib., Lubbock, Tex.
