The First Forty Days–The Essential Art of Nourishing the New Mother

By Heng Ou, Amely Greeven, and Marisa Belger

Caring for the new mother after childbirth is a lost art in Western society which is revived in this delightful book.

 

The book includes 60 simple recipes for healing soups; replenishing meals and snacks; and calming and lactation-boosting teas all formulated to support the unique needs of the new mother. In addition to the recipes, this warm and encouraging guide offers advice on arranging a system of help during the post-partum period, navigating relationship challenges, and honoring the significance of pregnancy and birth. The First Forty Days is a wonderful asset to the genre of perinatal health for birthworkers and family members alike.

Warmly recommended!
