Being a new mom is a wonderful experience, and it's also an achievement that comes with a bunch of new responsibilities, rewards, and excitement. As exciting as it is to have your new baby in your arms, the thing most women miss after they give birth, and sometimes even during pregnancy, is their tiny figures.

Giving birth is tough, but it always seems like getting the “baby weight” off of your figure is even tougher. Women all over the world read up on how to drop the weight that women naturally gain during those nine or ten months, and it's always so surprising to see how few women lose the weight they gained and actually keep it off.  

This doesn't mean that losing weight has to be too tough, though. The right exercises and practical measures can make it easy for you to shed the pounds. This is what "New Mommy, Hot Body" was written for. It tells you how to lose weight safely and naturally after you have given birth. It is a great exercise guide that comes with both accurate descriptions of each move, and pictures that help illustrate them as well. Form is crucial to good exercise results, and a step-by-step guide that shows you how to do each move well is absolutely necessary.

You will get simple & effective workouts that can be done at home to tone, slim down, strengthen your:

    - butt
    - thighs
    - abs
    - chest
    - upper & lower back
    - pelvis
    - ankles/feet
    - wrist/hands
    - neck
    - calves

Plus you get a day-by-day workout plan that is easy to follow & fit into your busy schedule. Follow the plan to get your body back in 8-12 weeks.

But this book goes beyond being just a simple postpartum exercise guide. It also shows you how to adjust to life as a mom while keeping your health and your back intact. You will learn:

    - How to reduce stretch marks & c-section scars...
    - Should you get Tummy Tuck?
    - How to properly carry your baby to avoid injuring yourself...
    - How to deal with pain after giving birth...
    - How to choose the right baby carrier for you and the baby...
    - Baby and mommy exercises that you and your baby can do together...

Queen Afua
A transformative journey of physical and ancestral healing from a renowned herbalist, natural health expert, and dedicated healer of women’s bodies and women’s souls
 
“Just when I thought I was all alone, I found myself walking with a group of conscious women who were taking sacred steps and speaking sacred words. We were on our way to Queen Afua’s Global Sacred Woman Village. Come with us, there’s Maat—balance and order—there.”—Erykah Badu
 
Queen Afua practices a uniquely Afrocentric spirituality. Her classic bestseller, Heal Thyself for Health and Longevity, forever changed the way African Americans practice holistic health. Now, with Sacred Woman, she restores the magnificence of our spirits through sacred initiation.
 
Queen Afua begins by helping us to discover our unique “womb-an-ness”—and to honor the womb as the center of our consciousness and creativity, giving us a twenty-one-day program for womb purification and spirit rejuvenation. Then Queen Afua summons us to enter the Nine Gateways of Initiation, where she blesses us with the exact tools we need to bring our beings into true harmony with the earth and the cosmos. Through extraordinary meditations, affirmations, and rituals rooted in Ancient Egyptian temple teachings, Queen Afua teaches us how to love and rejoice in our bodies by spiritualizing the words we speak; the foods we eat; the spaces we live and work in; the beauty we create in our lives; the healing energy we transmit to self and others; the relationships we nurture; the service we offer; and the transcendent woman spirit we manifest.
 
With love, wisdom, and passion, Queen Afua guides us to accept our mission and our mantle as Sacred Women—to heal ourselves, the generations of women in our families, our communities, and our world.
 
Praise for Sacred Woman
 
“Sacred Woman flings open the gates of understanding the feminine essence. It is the return of the soul force to women.”—Jewel Pookrum, MD, PhD (Sunut Arit)
 
“Queen Afua is an extraordinary healer, teacher, mother, and keeper of our legacy. Through Sacred Woman, she has given us the sacred tools we need to live our lives in this new century.”—Hazelle Goodman, actress

“Sacred Woman offers profound wisdom to all who seek healing and transformation. Queen Afua is a national treasure.”—Bob Law, author, radio personality, and vice president of WWRL
Tia Mowry
From the bloating to the belching to the Baby Story marathons that might just drive you crazy, prime-time star and new mom Tia Mowry delivers the lowdown in a frank, hilarious guide to modern pregnancy.

Tia Mowry’s 800,000+ Twitter followers know that she tells it like it is. Now, in a pregnancy guide like no other, Tia leaves no topic off-limits while helping expectant moms stay empowered, pampered, and laughing out loud. From sex during the third trimester to pimped-out strollers, Oh, Baby! reveals what to really expect on that nine-month road to the delivery room.

Sharing her personal experience with cravings (she couldn’t have done it without sourdough bread and Funyuns); maternity clothes (Tia prefers black, with sequins); panty liners (memorize that aisle at the drugstore); vagina exercises (just say No!); and hiding your bump from your coworkers (tricky for Tia, since her character on The Game was in lingerie half the time), the maternity maven also discusses Ask the OB Q&A’s she posed to her own ob-gyn, along with dozens of tried-and-true tips for combating morning sickness, fear, and everything else that might overshadow a radiant glow.

From the time she started showing to the moment she welcomed her new baby boy, Cree Taylor, into the world, Tia was in the spotlight, from Access Hollywood to every glossy magazine and countless online sites. Yet she stayed down-to-earth throughout it all. Keeping it real, Oh, Baby! helps every mommy-to-be stay stylish, maintain her dignity, and trust her gut (no matter how big it gets).
