Sylvia Brown with Mary Dowd Struck

Sylvia Brown wrote The Post-Pregnancy Handbook: The Only Book That Tells What the First Year After Childbirth Is Really All About -- Physically, Emotionally, Sexually  (Published by Griffin Trade Paperback) in response to her own frustration at the lack of comprehensive information for the mother in the weeks and months after childbirth. This is her first book.
