The First Forty Days - the essential art of nourishing the new mother is a gentle, nurturing guide for new mothers, filled with essential advice and recipes for the early postpartum weeks.

The first forty days is a short season in which you recover from birth and your baby unfurls slowly into the world.  It is a time of amazing intensity and adjustment.  This warm and encouraging guide offers advice on navigating the postpartum period and includes recipes for healing broths, calming and lactation-boosting teas, plus more - all formulated to support the needs of new mothers.

Inspired by author Heng Ou's own postpartum experience with the traditional Chinese zuo yuezi, a set period of "confinement" in which a woman remains at home focusing on healing and bonding with her baby, The First Forty Days revives the lost art of caring for the mother after birth.

As modern mothers are sometimes pushed to "bounce back" before they're ready after delivery their babies and often don't have the support they need for the physical and emotional challenges of this new chapter of their lives, "motherhood".  The Firsty Forty Days is a source of connection, nourishment and guidance for this important time in a mother's life.

This book contains 60 recipes for healing soups, meals and snacks, calming and lactation-boosting teas which have all been created for the needs of the new mother.  It also contains advice on designing a support system during the postpartum period, overcoming relationship challenges and honoring the significance of pregnancy and birth.
