Shalay Struhs has written "I've Had My Baby, Now What?" as a quick read on the dramatic and numerous post-postpartum changes women experience after giving birth. Only twenty-four pages in length, "I've Had My Baby, Now What?" tells of the hormonal changes a woman goes through after giving birth. The author has given birth to six children over a period of seventeen years and has experienced the symptoms and problems that come after childbirth. So, she has written of the methods that helped her recover: dietary changes, vitamin supplements, yoga which can be done via video or DVD, acupuncture, walking, getting enough sleep and drinking enough water. Struhs advises that these simple steps will work for any time in a woman's life. As she writes at the book's conclusion, "If we are not healthy mentally, emotionally and physically, we certainly cannot take care of others". And as a mother of six, the author certainly can testify to just that!
"I've Had My Baby, Now What" is short and simple and anyone can apply its steps to their own life, whether they are twenty or eighty years old, new mother or grandmother. Well-written and outlined, this little book can be read in a short time, especially by new mothers who are often sleepless with giving round the clock attention to their newborn baby. Each chapter covers sleep, water, vitamin supplements and the author's other sensible recommendations quickly and in a well-organized manner."I've Had My Baby, Now What" is a great little book to have in large quantities at the doctor's office or anywhere it can be picked up and read.
