Product Details


“Macy and Naliboff take what most pregnancy books consider an epilogue and birth a smart, compassionate companion for parents. A must read for anyone who finds themselves staring at a new baby and feeling like a stranger in their own body and mind.” — Abby Norman, author of Ask Me About My Uterus

Whether you are in the newborn stage or years out, Your Postpartum Body is a thorough guide for any person who has given birth. Pelvic floor issues during pregnancy and postpartum are common but not normal, and many people are left wondering what happened to their body and how they go about healing. This comprehensive guide covers changes that occur from the feet, through the pelvic floor, and into the trunk, and provides actionable guidance to resolve common issues. Uniquely, it also covers return to sport with progressive phases of movement for pilates, crossfit, and running. It is a solid resource and entry point for pelvic rehabilitation.”Amanda Olson, PT, DPT, PRPC

“Postpartum persons need this guide for their fourth trimester. This is an excellent resource for many of the common conditions after birth not commonly discussed either by providers or amongst friends and family.  Ruth and Courtney bring these issues to light, making the reader not feel alone or humiliated by these private and new concerns and give easy to follow strategies to allow healing to occur.” -Melissa Collard, MD FACOG

“In Your Postpartum Body, Ruth and Courtney have birthed a comprehensive and accessible roadmap to understanding and recovering your postpartum self. I couldn’t recommend this book more highly!” –Catherine Hill-Verrochi, DO, FACOG

“Even as a trained yogini I was not prepared for healing and balancing my body after a traumatic birth experience. I wish this remarkable book had been available to me during that time. The guidance in its pages is unmatched.”— Brianna Bedigian, Yoga Instructor, author of Healing Footstep to Footstep

“An empowering and loving guide for restoring and healing your body. This book is what the 6-week checkup should be – intimate, accessible, informative and full of techniques to heal and restore the postpartum body.”–Mara Altman, author of Gross Anatomy

Your Postpartum Body fills major gaps in our cultural understanding of the postpartum experience. Macy and Naliboff thoughtfully and honestly describe the physical realities of the body after birth that so often go ignored, misunderstood or dismissed. With full recognition of the fact that what should be basic postpartum care is out of reach for so many, they give detailed practical guidance for recovering and building strength. This is a postpartum must-have.”—Chelsea Conaboy, author of Mother Brain
