The first 40 days after the birth of a child offer an essential and fleeting period of rest and recovery for the new mother. Based on author Heng Ou's own postpartum experience with zuo yuezi, a set period of "confinement," in which a woman remains at home focusing on healing and bonding with her baby, The First Forty Days revives the lost art of caring for the mother after birth. As modern mothers are pushed to prematurely "bounce back" after deliver-ing their babies, and are often left alone to face the physical and emotional challenges of this new stage of their lives, the first forty days provide a lifeline-a source of connection, nourishment, and guidance. The book includes 60 simple 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. In addition to the recipes, this warm and encouraging guide offers advice on arranging a system of help during the post-partum period, navigating relationship challenges, and honoring the significance of pregnancy and birth. The First Forty Days, fully illustrated to feel both inspiring and soothing, is a practical guide and inspirational read for all new mothers and mothers-to-be-the perfect ally during the first weeks with a new baby.
As a parent and a teacher, Monique le Roux Forslund has first-hand experience of the effect food has on children. She has seen how sugar and other fast-acting carbohydrates can cause them to become over-active and struggle with concentration. In Healthy Food For A Healthy Baby she shows you how to give your baby a healthy and nourishing start to life.
In addition to the more than 100 easy recipes appropriate for babies aged six to 18 months, there are tips about natural good food to ensure that your child maintains all-round good health. Although this is not a ‘low carb high fat’ recipe book, the recipes do not include wheat fl our and sugar.
In addition, there is information on encouraging your child to develop mealtime independence – aka baby-led weaning (BLW) – much sooner than you’d expect.
Birth is the feminist issue that nobody's talking about - the land that feminism forgot - but this book aims to change that.This is Lean In for where it's most needed: the birth room, from the founder of the global Positive Birth Movement. Finally blasting the feminist spotlight into the labour ward, Milli Hill encourages women everywhere to stand and deliver, not lie back and think of England. As women consider anew their personal autonomy through the lens of #metoo, Give Birth Like a Feminist insists that birth is no longer left off the list in discussions about female power, control and agency. Both a thought-provoking guide for pregnant women, and a call to arms, this is a galvanising book that explains why women are the key decision makers in childbirth, why they need to know their rights and take an active role in their choices, and why they must find their voice and have their say in the birth room just as they have already done in the board room and the bedroom. Milli Hill lays bare the modern experience of pregnancy and birth in the developed world through research, personal testament and the accounts of hundreds of mothers. She illustrates how medicalisation and systems laid down by a patriarchal society have developed to disempower, even dehumanise, women at the gateway to motherhood. She then prepares the current generation of women for what to expect, setting out their often overlooked options and rights. This book answers the questions: Why should women, their families and healthcare professionals care about women having a positive birth experience? And why should women expect or demand more from their birth? For too long, women have been told that a healthy baby is `all that matters'. Give Birth Like a Feminist dares to say: women matter too.
As a follow-up to her original album, Our Incredible Journey, Cathy Heaton has created a new pregnancy and birth journal, that enables the baby’s parents to record all the milestones for a child, and which the child will be able to understand and enjoy once he or she is older. It is a precious keepsake of the mother and child’s journey from before birth (actually from the fifth week of pregnancy) to the child’s fifth year. The charming format, which is interspersed with gorgeous baby photography and appropriate quotations and verses, makes it simple to record milestones, special events, thoughts and general background. There is ample space to paste in multiple photographs or other keepsakes and mementos.
The astonishing story of a daughter, campaigner, First Lady and nurse SIMPLY A MIDWIFE is the inspirational story of a remarkable daughter, nurse and First Lady. The indomitable Edna Adan Ismail survived imprisonment, persecution, and civil war to become a pioneering politician, a leading light in the World Health Organisation, and a global campaigner for women's rights. The eldest child of an overworked doctor in the British Protectorate of Somaliland, Edna was the first midwife in Somaliland, she campaigned tirelessly for better healthcare for women and fought for women on a global stage as the first female Foreign Minister of her country. But mixing with presidents and princes, she still never forgot her roots and continued to deliver children and train midwives - a role she has to this day. At 81 years old, she still runs what is hailed as the Horn of Africa's finest university hospital where she trains future generations and still delivers babies. After all - as she puts it - she is `simply a midwife.'
As ’n opvolgboek vir haar oorspronklike album, Ons Ongeloofl ike Reis Saam, het Cathy Heaton ’n nuwe swangerskap- en geboortejoernaal geskep wat die baba se ouers in staat stel om alle mylpale aan te teken. Die kind sal dié album kan verstaan en geniet wanneer hy/sy ouer is. Dit is ’n kosbare aandenking van die moeder en kind se reis vanaf voorgeboorte (reeds vanaf die vyfde week van swangerskap) tot die kind vyf jaar oud word. Die aanloklike formaat word deurvleg met verruklike babafoto’s en toepaslike aanhalings en verse wat dit maklik maak om mylpale, spesiale geleenthede, gedagtes en algemene agtergrond aan te teken. Daar is oorgenoeg ruimte om verskeie foto’s of ander aandekings of herinnerings in te plak.
Breastfeeding is undoubtedly the natural and healthy way to nourish your baby, but it is neither always easy nor instinctive. Mothers often lack the knowledge and support they need for trouble-free breastfeeding. Breastfeed your baby is a complete but concise, practical guide for nursing mothers. The information is based on the most recent research in the field, and since it is evidence-based, it will also be invaluable to doctors, nursing staff, antenatal professionals and doulas - everyone assisting women during the intra-partum period. The information is authoritative and presented in such a way that the book can be read in one or two sittings before the baby's birth, yet detailed enough to remain an essential companion throughout the breastfeeding process. Each chapter starts with ten top tips on the theme, and the content is enhanced throughout with practical hints and tips. Case histories scattered throughout add to the level of practicality and will help mothers realize that they are not alone if they struggle. Chapters include: Why breastfeed; Preparing for breastfeeding; The mechanics of breastfeeding; The best start (latching, ensuring good milk supply); Preventing and solving problems; Baby at home; Back to work (breastfeeding in absentia, pumps and other aids); Nursing an older baby; When to wean; Breastfeeding in special circumstances. The book also contains contact details for lactation specialists and La Leche League groups throughout the country so nursing mothers will know where to find help if they struggle.

A chapter on labour and birth explains these processes with step-by-step illustrations and easy-to-grasp text. The Science of Pregnancy also looks at the nature of human pregnancy, including how it evolved, and explores the anatomy and physiology of both the male and female reproductive systems. The mysteries of DNA and genetics are unravelled and explained in clear, illustrated detail, including patterns of inheritance and the interplay of genes and environment. The book also provides straightforward, illustrated information on possible problems before, during, and after birth.

You will find a vast updated amount of important information that will hopefully protect the amazing system of life developing within you. You will also be updated on the latest medical information regarding the prevention of food allergies; by starting to feed your baby a variety of solids from four months.
