Foster a healthy recovery from birth, and empower holistic care for both Mum and baby with this comprehensive guide that provides natural remedies and specific information for the first couple of weeks after birth.
Far too many birthing mothers are not taught basic strategies and in-home treatments to enable the best chance for optimum recovery after birth, let alone know some simple care practices for the first few weeks of life.
This booklet provides some of those missing pieces.
"Why is this booklet not given out by hospitals and midwives? From a Mum on her third time around, it so needs to be! The natural remedies in here are so soothing and I'm gutted I didn't know about them for my first two births! I'm sure I would have healed quicker, or at least in a more comfortable way. I'm telling all my preggie friends that these expertise are a must have."

I got this guide when I did Philippa’s Postnatal Masterclass course, and it was one of the first things I packed into my hospital bag. That and her BabyCues Book. Really Mums, you can’t go wrong with any of Philippa’s work. She really is an amazing teacher, and I just know that with her stuff, my daughter and I are in good hands.
