The Little Book of Support for New Moms by Beccy Hands & Alexis Stickland
Specifically written for new moms, this is a survival guide to help you adjust to the “fourth trimester” (the 12 weeks after your child is born) and your new life, both physically and emotionally. Written by a doula and a midwife, it shares tools and advice on healing your body post-childbirth, adjusting to your exciting but challenging new role as a mom, maintaining your relationship with your partner, and retaining your identity amid all your new duties. From questions you were too embarrassed to ask to advice you didn’t know you needed, it contains short and sweet tips on everything you’re dealing with, in an easy-to-find format. Perhaps most importantly, these valuable tips can build your confidence and give you the tools and perspective to more fully enjoy all aspects of your life post-baby.
