"Healing Your Body Naturally After Childbirth" is the definitive postpartum guide. I desperately wish this book had been around after my son had been born 7 years ago. Having this book as a resource would've saved me years of postpartum suffering and hours at the doctor's office. I love all the resources, recipes and real life experiences that Dr. Jolene Brighten included in this book...perfect for pregnant and postpartum mothers...even moms several years postpartum. I still learned some things that could be beneficial to me now! And after reading this book, told my sister who is 4 weeks PP to order it right away. Had I had this book after the baby was born, I could have addressed so many symptoms effectively and naturally and likely would have caught my Hashimoto's thyroiditis diagnosis much sooner. If you know or love someone who is pregnant or has recently had a baby, get this book for them! They'll adore you for it - such a thorough and practical resource.

While many books on the market focus on having a healthy pregnancy, very few give us insight into how to recover our health after pregnancy. Pregnancy and childbirth can trigger a host of health issues, including postpartum depression, and even new onset autoimmunity. After her own struggle with postpartum autoimmune thyroid disease, Dr. Jolene Brighten was forced to take charge of her own healing, using her training as a naturopathic doctor to recover her health. Since that time, Dr. Brighten has dedicated her life’s work to empowering women in the “fourth trimester” and she shares the very strategies she has used to recover her own health, as well as the health of the many women who have trusted her with their care, in her new book “Healing Your Body Naturally After Childbirth: The New Mom's Guide to Navigating the Fourth Trimester”. This book is the definitive guide on recovering your health after pregnancy! If you found that your health problems started after pregnancy, it’s not too late- the recommendations in this book can still help you and change your life and health for the better. If you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, please get this book ASAP-it may just save your life and your future children's lives!
