Overview

With the birth of your baby, your new life as a parent has just begun. This book picks up where most other pregnancy books leave off: the important time after your baby is born, when you are left to look after your newborn child and may have very little idea of what's in store. It will help to guide you through the many new experiences now that your pregnancy is over and your baby is her. Your Pregnancy Recovery Guide covers; the postpartum period, your health and recovery concerns; what to expect if you breastfeed or if you bottlefeed; nutrition and exercise to help you get back into shape; life with your new baby; resuming life with your partner; balancing work concerns and returning to work; and, planning your next pregnancy. This is the book that every mother will want to read, whether you are a first-time parent or you have had a baby before.

"...addresses exercises after birth, contraception during breastfeeding, the emotional connection a mom develops with her baby, and balancing work with a baby."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Curtis, an obstetrician/gynecologist, and coauthor Schuler have written this book to answer the questions most mothers have following a baby's birth. The authors have written three other books dealing with pregnancy: Your Pregnancy: Week by Week (Fisher, 1997), Your Pregnancy: Questions and Answers (Fisher, 1997), and Your Pregnancy After 30 (Fisher, 1996). This chatty, informal addition to the stack deals primarily with what a mother should expect about her body, nutrition and exercise, adjusting to life with a baby, and even planning for the next pregnancy. It includes some information about what to expect from a baby in terms of eating and sleeping, and some information on child safety. A glossary is included. This is a useful addition to Antonia van der Meer's Great Beginnings: An Illustrated Guide to You and Your Baby's First Year (Dell, 1994). Recommended for patient education and consumer health collections.--Mary J. Jarvis, Pampa, TX
