What I think Every Provider Should Prescribe
The Fourth Trimester by Kimberly Ann Johnson. A must read whether you are thinking about pregnancy, are pregnant, had a baby and currently in the postpartum period or if planning your second, third, fourth… child. Also this makes a great baby shower gift! Recently recognized by New York Times as one of the survival guides to postpartum, The Fourth Trimester sheds light on preparing for and managing your life after the baby is born. My favorite highlights of the book include the recommended spices to cook with and certain foods to eat to keep our bodies energized, quick and easy self care routines to promote energy, decrease anxiety/stress, increase core strength and ways to really feel supported by your significant other, family, friends and yourself.
