Join us on November 23rd at 6 pm for a discussion with Yinova practitioner, Dr. Kelsey Tangel, for a discussion about the book, “The First Forty Days: The Essential Art of Nourishing the New Mother” by Heng Ou with Amely Greeven & Marisa Belger.
About the Book:
“The first 40 days after the birth of a child offer an essential and fleeting period of rest and recovery for the new mother. Based on author Heng Ou’s own postpartum experience with 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 pushed to prematurely “bounce back” after delivering their babies, and are often left alone to face the physical and emotional challenges of this new stage of their lives, the first forty days provide a lifeline—a source of connection, nourishment, and guidance.”
You can get a copy of the book here.
