A comprehensive, one-of-a-kind, evidence-based handbook to support postpartum healing and recovery

Pregnancy may have left you feeling that there’s no way to fix common postpartum symptoms , such as pelvic floor issues, exhaustion, and burnout, and lactation woes. But that's simply not true. With this revolutionary resource in hand, you’ll learn what happens to the body during pregnancy and childbirth, common changes in function and feeling, and solutions for healing. Your Postpartum Body was written with expertise by a pelvic floor physical therapist who'll empower you so that you can feel like yourself again—physically and mentally.
    You’ve probably heard plenty of anecdotes about what might help or hurt (to Kegel or not to Kegel?), and felt unsure about what's right for you. This book is backed up with medical expertise and practical advice. Your Postpartum Body is the complete reference guide for every eventuality—hydration, nutrition, lactation, how to end lactation successfully, pelvic floor recovery, finding your abs again, reducing pain, reclaiming your sexuality, and getting back to fitness confidently—with helpful illustrations and photos throughout.
    While your body is undoubtedly different (after all, you just grew a human!), you do not have to live with pain, incontinence, weakness, or feeding stress. You now hold the tools and techniques you need to heal and nourish your body and mind.
