"Pregnancy is an amazing time in a woman's life where her body changes dramatically to allow the baby's development and eventually deliver.
"Unfortunately, there are few providers able to answer even the simplest questions that women have about exercise and getting back in shape after their pregnancy. Much of the currently available guidance is vague, and actual plans that take into account the type of delivery a woman had are almost non-existent.
"This book and program explains how a woman's body changes with pregnancy and how to both maintain fitness during pregnancy and to recover afterward in a comprehensive, but easy-to-follow way. Christine Iverson uses the best evidence available and takes the approach of an orthopedic physical therapist, passionate about helping every woman to achieve optimum health and activity.
"This is a program that fills a huge gap, and more importantly, provides an opportunity for women to take control of their fitness and health during and after pregnancy with clear plans based on years of personal experience and in-depth research.
"Healthy and Quick & Everything Fit is an invaluable resource for every woman after pregnancy who wants to recover and thrive as a mother and an athlete and I have already started recommending it to my patients."--Shad Deering, MD, author of A Practical Manual to Labor and Delivery for Medical Students and Residents --This text refers to the paperback edition.
About the Author
Dr. Christine Iverson lives in Virginia with her husband and two children, David (b. 2013) and Jane (b. 2015). A lifelong athlete, she ran NCAA Division I cross country, indoor and outdoor track for the United States Military Academy at West Point, and she continues to compete in road races from 5Ks to marathons. Christine earned her Bachelor of Science from West Point in 2000 and became a Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2006 at Baylor University through the US Army-Baylor University Doctoral Program in Physical Therapy. She became specialty board certified in orthopedics in 2010.
Christine spent six years serving as a physical therapist for some of the most elite athletes in the US Army. She served for two of those years as the physical therapist for infantry soldiers and for three of those years as the physical therapist for Special Forces (Green Beret) soldiers. Christine is no stranger to helping athletes heal themselves from all types of injuries, from the simple ankle sprain to chronic back pain to multi-trauma injuries.
After having her first child in 2013, Christine made it her mission to give new moms everywhere the tools they need to recover after giving birth and reinvent postpartum athleticism from the inside out.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Some baby shower presents look good for a few weeks, this book will be useful right away.
Warning, if you buy this book, don't leave it at the obstetrician's or pediatrician's waiting room as it will be gone when you get back.
Finally, I like how informative and easy to understand the background chapters are. They do a great job of explaining the changes that happen to your body during pregnancy and how the rehab exercises help to retrain your pre-pregnancy movement patterns.

There is a theory part, exercise part and one about special conditions (like diastasis) and what to do about them.
It informs about changes that occur during pregnancy and how it influences the body afterwards - and that not everything goes automatically back to normal. This helps understand the need for exercise adaptations and helps to not make mistakes that worsen certain conditions. In that regard this book should be compulsory reading for every mom and especially every midwife or gynecologist, who, in my experience, neglect certain issues.
For me the book goes enough into detail to understand (I like to know the "why") with references given, but it is still concise enough not to waste time (which you don't have with a baby anyway.)
The exercise instructions are clear and need exercises need minimal material (dumbbells in later levels). There are 10 different levels with exercise progressions to more difficult ones and they alternate between two days (A and B). You can access all exercise plans and workout-videos online!! If you have trouble deciding you can try the first 3 levels online for free and there are also informative articles available.
