This easy-to-follow health and beauty guide for women after their first (or fifth!) baby looks at the dramatic physical and emotional effects of pregnancy and childbirth and explains how to get back into shape after the great event.
It covers everything from fitness and good posture to eating well. Beauty related subjects include ways to get rid of that tummy and ensuring that hair and skin regain their natural bloom. Equal emphasis is given to reasserting your sense of self after childbirth. An opening chapter on how to cope with the bodily and spiritual changes caused by having a baby is followed by a wealth of information about good diet and advice on nutrition while breastfeeding. Suggestions for exercise from the early days onwards aim to help you to feel and look your best and to boost your self-esteem.
The book concludes with a feel-good, 'mummy needs a moment or two' chapter, dedicated solely to the new mother.
