Highly recommended! Kristal's views on how to heal yourself during Postpartum have been so helpful to me. I'm currently pregnant with my first child and I came across Kristal's book while researching postpartum depression. From her book, I've learned how to set up healthy boundaries with those that are often around during the postpartum phase (namely mothers and mothers-in-law). I learned that it is important to set up clear expectations so you can appreciate your family's help without hurting/damaging your relationships. Kristal's book is also good for general preparations such as giving notes on how to prepare/stock healthy food and beverages in accordance with Traditional Chinese Medicine. I'm sure that every expecting mother can learn something of value from this book!
