5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for new and experienced mothers
By Sarah Gamble on August 22, 2016
The First 40 Days should be on every new (and experienced!) mother's reading list. I found this book while pregnant with my third and it has been so insightful and educational. The often overlooked "fourth trimester" is just as important to prepare and plan for as the first three. Though a lot of this book has to do with nutrition during the postpartum period it covers much more, such as insights into very common and normal postpartum feelings that can be very scary, confusing, or depressing to navigate when you feel like you're the only mom that has ever felt that way. Trust me you are not. This book will help you take on the new adventure of motherhood feeling grounded and empowered, to know it's ok to set boundaries for family and friends while you adjust to a new routine, and make it easy to keep you, and therefore your baby, healthy and well nourished.

There is a lot of information regarding traditional postpartum practices from around the world and particularly China as that is the authors heritage/background. Some of these things will probably seem very weird or even gross to those of us modern western world mothers. However, the author does not make any kind of requirements for postpartum care only suggestions and guidelines. I encourage you to read this with an open mind and anything not interesting to you is easily skipped over. There will still be so much knowledge, history, and nutritional care to take away from this read.
