If you’re serious about healing after baby then you’ll buy this book. Best thing I did my entire pregnancy.
Dr. Brighten says that women plan more for their delivery than their postpartum. Baby number four and I can tell you she’s right. I had 3 kids without this book and I slap myself for not using it sooner. After using what she suggested in this book my labor and postpartum were so much easier. It took me four babies to figure out what one book could teach me. Thank you Dr. Brighten. Thank you, thank you, thank you. My husband and family thank you too!
If your doctor isn’t talking to you about your thyroid during pregnancy please read this book. I found Dr. Jolene Brighten on the Thyroid Secret and my mind was blown away by how much she helped women and the stuff she talked about. My doctor never talked to me about any of this. I bought her book immediately and found so much helpful information. I had no idea you could do something to prevent mastitis and not just treat it with antibiotics which kill you thyroid. I am so much better off with the information in this book. I’ve held on to mine and used it for over a year. I give it at every baby shower. You’re doing yourself an injustice not buying this in pregnancy.
This book changed my life. You think you’ve got it all figured out with your fist baby and then number two comes and you don’t know as much as you thought. I wish I had this book with my first, but am so glad I have it now. These recipes are unbelievable. So good. Really, great information about thyroid and adrenal support that not even my midwife knew about. Now my midwife is recommending this book to women! I wish I had this book with my first son. My postpartum has been so much easier with my second son because of all this prep this book gave me. Buy this book before you’re pregnant and prepare yourself in the second or third trimester. If you do what Dr. Brighten says then your going to have a much easier time postpartum.
Mother Angela –
Best book on the fourth trimester ever! I remember listening to Dr. Brighten talk about the fourth trimester years ago and now that is a really popular term. At first I thought fourth trimester makes sense. And now, there are all these women talking about it and posting stuff about it. Dr. Brighten’s work paved the way for so many moms to feel better. I hate how so many doctors tell women that being a mom is supposed to be terrible. Dr. Brighten offers hope. She’s so much smarter than most doctors and in this book I learned a ton and was able to make my own recipes for healing. The vagina care information is pure gold. I don’t know where I’d be without it. If you’re thinking about having a baby then buy this book. I tell moms that if you’ve had a baby in the last 18 months then this book will help. Women think that they are ok after their 6 week check up. They are not. I wasn’t. I’ve been using this book’s recommendation for two years and I’m better every day because of it. Please get this book and take care of yoruself.
