Book Synopsis



Explore postpartum self-care strategies for eating, body image, emotions, nursing and milk production, sex, and so much more!

The role of motherhood is one where women are continuously asked to focus on the needs of everyone else but themselves. This is a significant issue in the arena of self-care, where we often ignore our own hunger, energy levels, and emotions in the pursuit of taking care of others.

Written from the perspectives of both therapist and busy mom, Self-Care for New Moms features several eye-opening exercises, interviews from a village of experts (who also happen to be moms), and helpful interventions to help you get through the chronic depletion common to the postpartum year.

Self-care strategies include:

  • Exercise and yoga
  • Pelvic floor recovery work
  • Psychotherapy
  • Self-compassion techniques
  • Complementary and alternative methods (massage, chiropractic, or acupuncture)
  • Simple recipes
  • Methods for reconnecting with your partner
  • And so much more
The practical exercises and comforting techniques in this book will help you manage one of motherhood's biggest challenges: self-care.
