You read all the birthing books, took the Lamaze classes, and made it through labor (mostly) unscathed, but now the baby is home, and it's a whole new ballgame!
There are plenty of books and resources about how to properly care for your new baby, but what about caring for yourself? Maria Lianos-Carbone, founder of AMotherWorld.com, outlines the proper care and feeding of mothers during their baby's first year. From the physical and emotional changes a new mom will undergo to rekindling intimacy with her partner, Oh Baby! A Mom's Self-Care Survival Guide for the First Year keeps the focus on moms, because you can't draw water (or breast milk, for that matter) from an empty well.
