While a number of books exist which deal with various aspects of the postnatal experience - breastfeeding, exercise, motherhood, post-partum… depression - this is the first complete source of information on what a woman experiences both physically and emotionally in the days, weeks and months after childbirth. It is also the only book in its field which balances medical advice with practical tips and numerous references to alternative remedies. From Sylvia Brown, a mother, and Mary Dowd Struck, RN,MS,CNM, a nurse/midwife, comes The Post-Pregnancy Handbook, a wonderfully comprehensive, honest self-help guide which every new (and repeat) mother should keep by her bedside. Brown and Struck give detailed guidance on: The First Few Days - alleviating discomfort from the after-effects of labor or a ceasarian - making the hospital stay more pleasant- coping with possible medical complications The First Few Weeks - organizing home life with a new baby - surviving fatigue- breastfeeding successfully - managing older siblings, parents and friends- introducing a new dimension to the couple (returning to sex after childbirth)- navigating the new mother's dietary needs- identifying and overcoming a range of emotional difficulties from "baby blues" to severe postnatal depression- dealing with stress, guilt and that elusive maternal instinct The First Year- achieving a complete physical recovery: how to get back into shape from the inside out - restoring strength and tone to the pelvic floor- countering the legacies of pregnancy: problems with hair, skin, and varicose veinsA thorough, straightforward guide to helping the new mother achieve an effective and harmonious recovery.

A poignant funny and above all honest look at obesity from the inside out Is… it the goal of life to be thin Or to be happy In this inspiring story those two elusive goals become one as a fat man learns acceptance loses the guilt and gains the wisdom to manage his weight You can hardly pick up a magazine or turn on the TV today without encountering a torrent of talk on weight But all too rarely do we hear from overweight people themselves especially men about how life feels inside the body of a fat person Mike Berman shares that story in this hopeful and uplifting memoir A self-proclaimed fat man who is also a happy man successful in his career marriage and friendships Berman has earned his insight and peace of mind through decades of personal struggle In Living Large this well-known political activist and Washington lobbyist never shies away from the pain and daunting challenges of being seriously overweight But Berman has an important message that he wants to be heard Fatness is not a moral failing but a disease and once it is accepted as such it can be successfully managed

في صَبيحَةِ يَوْمٍ باكِرٍ، وَفي بَلْدَةٍ صَغيرَةٍ ما زالَ أَهْلُها نِيامًا، لَعْلَعَ صَوْتُ صَناديقَ تُفْرِغُها سِتُّ شاحِناتٍ. بَيْنَما كانَتِ الشّاحِناتُ تُغادِرُ… المَكانَ، كانَ «سام سِكيبر» يُنادي بِأَعْلى صَوْتِهِ: «كُلُّ ما أَحْتاجُهُ اليَوْمَ هُوَ صُنْدوقانِ اثْنانِ فَقَطْ».
