The fourth trimester - something a lot of us don't prepare enough for, but something that we all need to talk about more. Those first few months after you’ve had your new babe, where everything has changed. The Afterwards.
AFTERWARDS is an in-depth, real, raw and honest account of this incredibly challenging time.
AFTERWARDS is written by a first time mum, Tori Bowman Johnson, for every other first time mum who is fumbling around the postpartum playground. Whilst a newborn brings so much joy ... it is no secret that a mama’s life becomes a surreal hybrid of wild wonder & WTF! moments.
Looking down at your tired body to think, "What on earth happened here? Is this normal? Why do my boobs look so angry? Do maternity pads come in any size other than Extreme, Colossal & Boat?"
Whether it's going to the loo for the first time, dealing with the loss of bladder control, managing leaking boobs that look scarily like a botched pair of implants, fearing the act of s-e-x or coping with boredom & gut wrenching guilt ... AFTERWARDS dives into the many unfamiliar pockets of life post birth.
With a wonderfully, high qualified team of experts in women's health, midwifery, skincare, sexology and more ... AFTERWARDS is a gentle exploration, a warm and word driven friend & a safe place for any & all new mums to nestle into when they’re feeling the feels of the postpartum existence.
Another beautiful touch, this book is published on recycled paper. Practical and sustainable. We love!
