When we think about life postpartum, many of us focus solely on the baby. And while the health and happiness of baby is crucial, so too is that of moms. Thanks to this groundbreaking book, The First 40 Days, co-written by Amely Greeven, we will learn how to nourish new mamas with food, meditation and help from friends and family.
The Book "The first forty days" after the birth of a child is an essential and fleeting period of rest and recovery for the new mother. Co-Author Heng Ou channeled her own experience with zuo yuezi, a set period of postpartum “confinement,” in which a woman remains at home focusing on healing and bonding with her baby, into the The First Forty Days, a book that revives the lost art of caring for a mother after birth. The book includes 60 simple and delicious recipes for healing soups; replenishing meals and snacks; and calming and lactation-boosting teas, all formulated to support the unique needs of the new mother (and to feed hungry partners, too). In addition to the recipes, this warm and encouraging guide offers advice on securing help during the postpartum period, navigating inevitable relationship challenges, and honoring the rite of passage that is pregnancy and birth.
"We must do it for ourselves and for our children, because the way women become mothers profoundly affects the way their children awaken to this world. When you take care of the mother, you take care of the child."
