In the west, the focus in postpartum care has been on the new child. Here is a book for the new mother! The information in Sitting Moon will bring mothers-to-be and professionals involved in taking care of new mothers from birth planning through the first month postpartum. Just as today's health protocols often use integrative care, Sitting Moon breaks the ground by combining western knowledge with health-building tools of the east such as acupressure, Chinese nutrition and chi movement exercise. Includes recipes and resources.

What readers are saying...
I thought one could only dream about a book like this…and here it is! Thank you! — Maria
Oh my. The book is utterly perfect and for some reason, it makes me want to cry. Bless. — Leonie
What a gift to be able to give and receive this kind of loving support during those early weeks. Thank you so much for sharing. xoxo. — Kirsten
I think there is nothing like gathering around a woman who has just given birth. But we do need a little coaching on just how to do that, don’t we? Not a time to be needy ourselves, but rather to sit quietly, at ease with ourselves, letting our skin be soft and the tea warm. — Rebecca
Oh how I wish I had had a Zuo Yue Zi after the birth of each of my children. I hope to provide this to them when they have little ones of their own. — Molly
This will be a lovely bit to share with my dear friend who will soon hold the title: Mother. — Jessica
The vulnerable woman that is a new mama…too many just have no idea. Thanks for sharing this resource. — Jennifer
All mamas need this! Sometimes, I still wish for this kind of support, and my “baby” is 2! — Jenni
As an Ob/Gyn, I love hearing ways to encourage women to slow down and be gentle with themselves during the transition to motherhood. — Anna
What a needed book. As a student of midwifery, the more I learn, the more I realize the post partum period is where my work lies. Thank you!!!! — Marybeth
