Golden Month: caring for the world's
mothers after childbirth
by Jenny Allison
Golden Month outlines a holistic approach towards postnatal care that amalgamates the best practices from different cultures throughout the world.
An acupuncturist and teacher, Jenny Allison has spent a decade researching this book. Golden Month aims to debunk the anxiety-inducing myth of the perfect postpartum body. It focuses on a mother’s long-term well-being, looking at both mental and physical health.
Golden Month also explains the importance of nutrition and includes nutrient-dense recipes to ensure optimum recovery during the postnatal period.
"Too often women feel challenged to expect too much of themselves when they most need care and attention, this book is an excellent reinforcement to that other voice of reason that needs to be heard in postpartum care." – Dr Suzanne Cochrane, lecturer in traditional Chinese medicine, University of Western Sydney
"I am very confident that Golden Month will be of enormous benefit to women, regardless of their background or culture." – Paddy McBride MHSc (TCM), President, New Zealand Register of Acupuncturists Inc
