Details

This book will make you feel good, prepared and supported as you approach motherhood. Doulas Jessica Prescott and Vaughne Geary share their evidence-based approach to the lost but ever important art of caring for yourself as a mother, including recipes from their postpartum food delivery service Mama Goodness). They cover everything from conversations to have with your partner while pregnant, gentle boundary setting, emotional regulation, breastfeeding information, what to expect on an emotional and physical level in the days and weeks following birth, practical healing tips, mental health, how to stock your pantry, blood tests to ask for at your 6 week checkup, nutritional advice, sex after baby, parenting on your period, sleep tips, ways your partner can help and so much more. In the tone of a friend who understands you, Jessica and Vaughne touch on the mundane, the taboo, and everything in between, then finish off the book with 30 delicious recipes. 

Makes a beautiful gift for an expecting friend.

Fantastic practical guide

Can't recommend this enough, it's the one book the actually covers all three things that no-one else warns you about! I purchased for myself, read it cover to cover in the final weeks of pregnancy and find it so helpful to set expectations with myself and my partner. An currently rereading 5 weeks post partum, and getting alot of use out of the recipes section at the back.
