Maternity Leave: A New Mother's Guide to the First Six Weeks Postpartum

A well-rounded guide for women that addresses the issues all new mothers face.

Praeclarus Press is pleased to release its first book dedicated to the complete and well-rounded care a new mother needs. The first six weeks postpartum are a crucial time for the new mother and her baby. The puerperium, or postpartum period, is considered to be the fourth stage of labor and begins immediately after delivery and lasts until the new mother is completely recovered, typically about six weeks. It is during this time that the foundation for parenting for mom, baby, and the family is established. The postpartum period is the time for the new mother to adapt, not only to her role as a mother and caregiver, but also to the changes in her body and her psychological state. This book provides vital information for new mothers, their partners and families about what to expect in the first six weeks postpartum.

Maternity Leave: A New Mother’s Guide to the First Six Weeks Postpartum contains essential information for the new mother. It is a comprehensive book on the normal postpartum period. This book contains valuable information for the new mother about taking good care of herself and her newborn baby; and addresses issues that may arise affecting both mother and baby. Topics covered include: post baby body, post baby brain, post baby cesarean, post baby breastfeeding and breast care, post baby bottle-feeding and breast care, post baby diet (weight, exercise, digestion, hair and skin), plus many more.
