This book is kind of comforting to read Most of the information is common, at least to me, but it s nice to hear some of this again I also could skip over some of it because it had nothing to do with me makes it faste I just finished this book and I found it as a good source for new mom s If only I had it months ago it would have helped during those early stages of being a new mom though I don t know if I would have had time to read it like I do now I do think it s a must read for all new moms. A good reference for a clueless first time mother I would not recommend reading it before delivery It s like reading Web MD when you feel sick You end up worryingthan needed You could probably answer the same questions by asking another mother or searching the web. Good book with lots of info for the post partum mom about mommy issues wish I had found this after my first, not my second as I felt I had already known most of this the second time around, but certainly did not the first time Decent post partum book, especially for first time moms There were several sections I skipped when I read this book, discussions concerning special situations like c sections and other post partum conditions that might arise. Decent overview of postpartum changes, what is normal and what is not It would have beenhelpful for me had I read it during my last month of pregnancy, so I would be better prepared for issues as they came up. This was a weird book Loved some of the early chapters, they actually taught me some things that would have been helpful to know a few weeks ago, but then it seemed to randomly turn into a disease o pediafelt like they needed filler maybe Why Can T I Lose The Extra Weight Why Am I Shedding Like My Pet Golden Retriever I M Just Too Tired To Have Sex And It Hurts What Should I Do How Can I Tell The Difference Between The Baby Blues And A Real Depression Why Am I Having So Many Fights With My Husband At Last Your Baby Has Arrived, And You Re Experiencing All The Joys That Come With Being A New Mom But You May Not Have Bargained On Acne And Enlarged Feet, Not To Mention Constipation, Vaginal Pain, Mood Swings, Or Perhaps One Of The Serious Conditions That Pregnancy Can Trigger So What Can You Do To Deal With All These Unexpected Challenges In This Compassionate, Comprehensive Guide, Dr Jennifer Wider, A Physician As Well As The Mother Of Two Small Children, Delivers Up To Date Medical Information, Candid Answers To A Host Of Questions, And Expert Advice On A Range Of Postpartum Issues, Including Sex And Intimacy After Pregnancy Physical And Mental Roadblocks Marital Stresses And Strains How To Safely Lose Weight And Exercise Cracked Nipples And Other Breast Feeding Concerns When The Baby Blues Are Than Just A Phase Coping With Thyroid Problems, Anemia, Diabetes, Urinary Incontinence, And Other Conditions That Can Show Up During Or After PregnancyFrom Redefining Yourself To Taking Care Of Yourself While Caring For Your Baby, The New Mom S Survival Guide Offers Such A Wealth Of Practical Help That New Moms Will Turn To It Again And Again.
