This holistic guide offers practical advice to support women through postpartum healing on the physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual levels—and provides women with a roadmap to this very important transition that can last from a few months to a few years.

Kimberly Ann Johnson draws from her vast professional experience as a doula, postpartum consultant, yoga teacher, body worker, and women’s health care advocate, and from the healing traditions of Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine, and herbalism—as well as her own personal experience—to cover


  • how you can prepare your body for birth;

  • how you can organize yourself and your household for the best possible transition to motherhood;

  • simple practices and home remedies to facilitate healing and restore energy;

  • how to strengthen relationships and aid the return to sex;

  • learning to exercise safely postpartum;

  • carrying your baby with comfort;

  • exploring the complex and often conflicting emotions that arise postpartum;

  • and much more.
