Too often we think about “bouncing back” from pregnancy, ignoring the important new changes to our bodies and lives. Traditional Chinese medicine offers a different way to find wellness and balance in the weeks following birth. Sitting Moon, an ancient Chinese method for postpartum recovery and growth, includes lifestyle changes, dietary guidelines, advice on family dynamics, and simple exercises to promote healing and balance after birth.
