Review

" Thirty years ago, when I had my babies, we were rediscovering natural birth and breast-feeding. But, we struggled alone during postpartum. If I had been able to read Aviva's book then, I would have cried less. Every new mother should have a copy of this book."

" This is a superb and much needed book that should help and support all postpartum mothers."

" Destined to have widespread appeal for its compassionate and wise advice.? Thank you, Aviva, for so much vital information in one volume.?

" Finally, a book that addresses an aspect of birthing that has been forgotten in the western world.? This book should make a valuable contribution not only to women, but to the whole family."

From the Back Cover

PARENTING / PREGNANCY "Destined to have widespread appeal for its compassionate and wise advice. Thank you, Aviva, for so much vital information in one volume." --Jeannine Parvati Baker, author of Prenatal Yoga and Natural Childbirth "Finally, a book that addresses an aspect of birthing that has been forgotten in the Western world. This book should make a valuable contribution not only to women, but to the whole family." --Mary Bove, N.D., author of An Encyclopedia of Natural Healing for Children and Infants "This is a superb and much-needed book that should help and support all postpartum mothers." --Suzanne Arms, award-winning photojournalist and author of Immaculate Deception II: Myth, Magic & Birth New mothers need their own special care and support--just like their new babies--to adjust to the myriad challenges facing them after birth: changing body image, lifestyle, work arrangements, and relationships. Now midwife, herbalist, and mother of four, Aviva Jill Romm shares her years of experience and insights into how to make this crucial life transition a smooth and happy one. Aviva offers solutions to situations that can seem completely overwhelming--how to get enough rest by building a support circle of family and friends; how to eat well using her 17 high-energy recipes; how to replenish your spirit with healing baths; and how to regain your strength and tone your abdomen and pelvic area with postnatal yoga exercises. Providing 80 easy-to-make herbal remedies to heal and restore vitality to your body and to stimulate milk production, Aviva carries her advice through the entire first year, including tips on how to soothe fussy babies and how to recapture your sex life. Natural Health after Birth provides the support that is so often lacking for new mothers--support both for stay-at-home moms and those who will return to their jobs soon after the birth. Written with humor and compassion by someone who really understands the journey, Aviva Romm offers practical wisdom and concrete strategies for negotiating the beautiful but demanding path of motherhood while maintaining a strong sense of self. AVIVA JILL ROMM is a certified professional midwife, practicing herbalist, and the president of the American Herbalists Guild. Her children are now ages 17, 14, 10, and 8. Her previous books include The Natural Pregnancy Book, Vaccinations: A Thoughtful Parent's Guide, and Naturally Healthy Babies and Children. She lives with her family in Georgia.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book for Body, Mind and Spirit 17 Mar. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Aviva Jill Romm's book is destined to have widespread appeal for its compassionate and wise advice. I am grateful to Aviva for having so much vital information in one volume. The topics are Herbs, Nutrition, Yoga, and Practical Wisdom and sagely begins with Chapter One -- The Birth of a Mother. Her chapter on Replenishing Yourself -- Body, Mind and Spirit is particularly wonderful and the photos of the mother and newborns are full of soul. Both Robin Lim's (After The Baby's Birth) and Aviva's books make the best baby shower / Blessing Way gifts! For too many years postpartum has been neglected in terms of self-help guidebooks and within a moon of one another in 2002 came two excellent contributions to what I hope to see is the growing body of knowledge for new mothers. This is a book I will give my children and grandchildren!

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful book for postpartum care of your body. 7 Nov. 2011
By Heather Pilon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I highly recommend this book. It gives a realistic perspective on what goes on with the body, heart and mind after our babies are born. After the birth of my first baby, I was a shocked at how long it took my body to recover and most friends and family had very little to say me about what a new mom needs to do help the body balance. I was a little disappointed actually so I decided to do more research about how to take care of myself postpartum now that our second baby will be arrive this January. After reading this book, I feel like I can put together a better plan for rest and have found more ways to heal the achy bits after the baby is born. I think in the West, we have this feeling like we should be able to "do it all", even after giving birth. When first taking care of newborn son, I called my mother telling her how challenging it was to get rest and take care of the home. She said to me, "What's the big deal taking care of just one baby? I had four of you and no help!" But I remember, she was exhausted. This book suggests that we DO need help and time to rest after birth, whether or not you have one child or four children. I appreciate that.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Postpartum Bible! 5 Dec. 2008
By C. M. Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book held my proverbial hand through the postpartum period. For clogged ducts, a fussy baby, hormonal swings, nutritional needs, and bigger life questions this book offered calm, moderate, thorough, step-by-step advice for new mothers. I recommend it for all new moms
