Manage episode 295131673 series 2797840
Wondering how to best manage the fourth trimester? This week on the show we are speaking with Kimberly Ann Johnson, author of "The Fourth Trimester" and "Call of the Wild." After experiencing her own “black hole” through her postpartum experience, she studied indigenous cultures around the world to learn how we can do a better job with the postpartum period.
From her experience, she determined there are five universal needs that all women across the globe require postpartum.
Today, she walks us through these five essential needs and helps us understand the best way to set ourselves up to get these needs met for a better, easier and truly restorative postpartum recovery.
