About this title


Picking up where most pregnancy books leave off, Bouncing Back After Your Pregnancy covers the care of mother and baby and the new family dynamic during the eight to twelve weeks of postpartum adjustment. Written with compassion and packed with sound medical advice, Bouncing Back guides new parents through this most intense, disorienting time, with information on:Recovering from childbirth and regaining strength and vitalityWhat to do if you are having trouble breastfeedingAnd how to tell if your baby is getting enough milk or formulaWhat to ask in your first visit to the pediatricianNutritional tips and recommended exercises for getting back in shapeSelecting the right childcare arrangements if you are returning to the workplaceAnd much, much more.Sure to take its place on the shelf right next to Your Pregnancy Week by Week, Bouncing Back After Your Pregnancy is the definitive resource for every new mother.


The author of the bestselling Your Pregnancy Week by Week returns with possibly the first book of its kind, Your Pregnancy Recovery Guide, which focuses on the physical and emotional concerns during the postpartum period. Yes, most pregnancy books do include this type of information, but for women who'd like to avoid the scary sections on all that can go wrong during pregnancy but realize there are plenty of things they need to learn once the baby is born, this book is a practical choice. Dr. Curtis, a gynecologist and father of five children, covers afterpains and specific steps to take after either a cesarean or vaginal delivery; warning signs that indicate you or your baby should see the doctor; breast- and bottle-feeding; nutrition for the breast-feeding mother; and exercise. He also includes tips for keeping the relationship with your partner close during this stressful time; birth control (yes, you need it even if you're breastfeeding); and issues surrounding childcare and returning to work.
