Product description

Review

Women are beginning to see the range of choices they have during pregnancy and birth, but the journey isn't over when the baby arrives. Bringing our attention back to the importance of the postpartum period for new mothers helps to create space for this essential period of integration and recovery. The First 40 Days is an invaluable companion during the first 40 days and beyond.--Ricki Lake & Abby Epstein, Filmmakers, The Business of Being Born
