The Fourth Trimester: A Postpartum Guide to Healing Your Body, Balancing Your Emotions, and Restoring Your Vitality

By Kimberly Ann Johnson

A guide to help support women through post-partum healing on the physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual levels.

This holistic guide offers practical advice to support women through postpartum healing on the physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual levels--and provides women with a roadmap to this very important transition that can last from a few months to a few years.

Kimberly Ann Johnson draws from her vast professional experience as a doula, postpartum consultant, yoga teacher, body worker, and women's health care advocate, and from the healing traditions of Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, and herbalism--as well as her own personal experience--to cover

  • how you can prepare your body for birth
  • how you can organize yourself and your household for the best possible transition to motherhood
  • simple practices and home remedies to facilitate healing and restore energy
  • how to strengthen relationships and aid the return to sex
  • learning to exercise safely postpartum
  • carrying your baby with comfort
  • exploring the complex and often conflicting emotions that arise postpartum
  • and much more.
