We read and talk a lot about the first, second and third trimester, preparing for pregnancy and birth. But just as important is the fourth trimester, the Afterwards. This beautiful, real, raw and honest account of this stage is written by Tori Bowman Johnson, a first time mum, who understands that while a newborn brings so much joy ... it is no secret that a new mother’s life becomes a surreal hybrid of wild wonder & WTF moments. Whether it's going to the bathroom for the first time, dealing with the loss of bladder control, managing leaking boobs that look scarily like a botched pair of implants, fearing the act of s-e-x or coping with boredom and gut wrenching guilt... Afterwards dives into the many unfamiliar pockets of life post birth, and will help you deal with the changes, knowing you’re not alone. With a wonderfully, highly qualified team of experts in women's health, midwifery, skincare, sexology and more... Afterwards is a gentle exploration, a warm and word driven friend and a safe place for any and all new mums to nestle into when they’re feeling the feels of the postpartum existence.
