The First Forty Days, fully illustrated to feel both inspiring and soothing, is a practical guide and inspirational read for all new mothers and mothers-to-be – the perfect ally during the first weeks with a new baby.

As modern mothers are pushed to prematurely "bounce back" after deliver­ing their babies, and are often left alone to face the physical and emotional challenges of this new stage of their lives, the first forty days provide a lifeline--a source of connection, nourishment, and guidance.

This encouraging guide offers advice on arranging a system of help during the post­partum period, navigating relationship challenges, and honouring the significance of pregnancy and birth. It also includes several recipes for nourishing meals and snacks.
