By Heng Ou, with Amely Greeven and Marisa Belger, Harry N. Abrams, Hardcover, 224 pages
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.
