      • bioText: Kimberly Johnson is a birth doula, certified Sexological Bodyworker, Somatic Experiencing practitioner, postpartum care advocate, and single mom.
         
        Kimberly graduated valedictorian in the School of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern University. A longtime yoga teacher, yoga teacher trainer, and Structural Integration practitioner, she was unexpectedly rearranged in body, mind, and spirit when she sustained an injury during childbirth. Determined not to get full pelvic floor reconstructive surgery, she traveled the world learning about postpartum practices, healed herself holistically, and now helps other women do the same. ​

        She has private practices in Encinitas and Los Angeles, CA, specializing in helping women prepare for birth, recover from birth injuries and birth trauma, and access their full sexual expression. Her most outstanding accomplishment is being a single mom to her fiery ten-year-old half-​Brazilian daughter, Cecilia. You can find her online at http://www.MagaMama.com​.

      • premium: False
      • source: Kelly Brogan MD, author of the New York Times bestseller, A Mind of Your Own
      • content: "Birth is our inbuilt experience of initiation to self, but we are in desperate need of sage guidance throughout this otherwise overwhelming and scary transformation. Kimberly Ann Johnson lights the path to our truest, most actualized, and empowered feminine selves...because it begins in the Fourth Trimester. Every mother-to-be and mother-lover needs these pages to learn how to truly honor this mystical transition."

      • content: "In all my years as an ob/gyn, I never once met a woman who was able to get by the initiation of labor and birth and focus on the critical postpartum time frame--a time which is largely ignored in our culture. After all, most "maternity leaves" end at mere 6 weeks--nowhere near enough time to truly honor and carry out the true work of the fourth trimester. No--we tend to focus only on the birth--and if mom and baby make it through in a reasonably healthy way, we figure we're done. Not even close. In this eye opening and vital book, all those who care about women, children, and families will find a treasure trove of information and practices that are vital for the health of society. I highly recommend this book."
