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.

Thich Nhat Hanh's central teaching is that, through mindfulness, we can learn to live in the present moment instead of… in the past and in the future. It's only way to truly develop peace, both in one's self and in the world. Now, for the first time, all of Thich Nhat Hanh's key practices are collected in one accessible and easy-to-use volume. Happiness is structured to introduce those new to Buddhist teachings as well as for more experienced practitioners, Happiness is the quintessential resource of mindfulness practices. Integrating these practices into daily life allows the reader to begin to cultivate peace and joy within him/herself, leading to solidity and freedom from fear, misunderstanding, and suffering. With the practices offered in Happiness Thich Nhat Hanh encourages the reader to learn to do all the things they do in daily life with mindfulness; to walk, sit, work, eat, and drive, with full awareness of what they are doing. It can bring about a shift towards one of the principles of engaged Buddhism, a shift towards practicing mindfulness in every moment of the day and not just while 'formally' meditating.Thich Nhat Hanh encourages his readers to "try to be intelligent and skillful in their practice, approaching every aspect of the practice with curiosity and a sense of search. It's important to practice with understanding and not just for the form and appearance. Enjoy your practice with a relaxed and gentle attitude, with an open mind and receptive heart."
By Thich Nhat Hanh. 2009
Encouraging readers to be intelligent and skillful in their practice, this new collection by Thich Nhat Hanh outlines the essential… steps by which we can all obtain real and lasting happiness. Each day, we perform the tasks of everyday life without thought or awareness - walking, sitting, working, eating, driving, and much more. But Hanh points out that if we remain truly aware of our actions, no matter the task we're performing, we can stay engaged in our lives and better our outlook through mindfulness. This key practice is the foundation for this accessible, easy-to-understand volume, and an invaluable tool for change for both seasoned Buddhist practitioners and lay readers interested in bettering their lives through full awareness.
