            Foreword by Lynne Robinson, Pilates guru and founder of Body Control Pilates This is a straight-talking, woman-to-woman postnatal recovery guide with a difference: based around Pilates fundamentals and a progressive Pilates programme tailored for postnatal recovery, this book wil...l enable women to establish good posture and breathing habits for life as well as rebuilding strength after birth. Pelvic floor dysfunction is a real issue, affecting 75% of women in their lifetime. We have a culture of suffering in silence, and currently many women simply accept postnatal issues such as pelvic floor weakness and abdominal separation, which can be a cause of pain, embarrassment and mental health problems. Postnatal Pilates is a guide to taking control of postnatal recovery, empowering women with robust information and techniques to take their recovery into their own hands, as well as providing essential signposts on when to seek professional guidance. Posture tips are easily incorporated into day-to-day life (breastfeeding, pushing the buggy, at your desk, picking up your toddler) and the book also features bite-sized health, fitness and wellbeing advice throughout, along with tips for dealing with the physical and mental stresses of early motherhood. Exercise routines are broken down into 10/20/30-minute sessions so that women can realistically aim to commit to them around life with a baby.

            Boys & Sex: Young Men on Hookups, Love, Porn, Consent, and Navigating the New Masculinity (Hardback)

            The author of the groundbreaking New York Times bestsellers Girls & Sex and Cinderella Ate My Daughter now turns her focus to the sexual lives of young men, once again offering both an examination of sexual culture and a guide on how to improve it (Washington Post). Peggy Orenste...in's Girls & Sex broke ground, shattered taboos, and galvanized conversations about young women's right to pleasure and agency in sexual encounters. It also had an unintended effect on its author: Orenstein realized that talking about girls is only half the conversation. To understand girls and sex, we also need to talk about boys and sex. Today's young men are subject to the same cultural forces as their female peers. They are steeped in the distorted media images and binary stereotypes of female sexiness and toxic masculinity which shape how they, too, navigate sexual and emotional relationships. In Boys & Sex, Orenstein uses the same fascinating mix of anecdote and research to reveal how young men understand and negotiate the new rules of physical and emotional intimacy. Drawing on comprehensive interviews with young men, psychologists, academics, and experts in the field, Orenstein takes an unprecedented look at the myriad factors that are shaping boys' ideas of sex, girls, and masculinity including: locker room talk how the word hilarious robs boys of empathy pornography as the new sex education hookup culture and consent Bro culture and #metoo excessive drinking and frat parties boys' experience as victims and perpetrators of sexual violence By exploring the complexity of young men's attitudes, beliefs, and experiences, Orenstein unravels the hidden truths, hard lessons, and important realities of boys' sex lives today. The result is a provocative and paradigm-shifting work that offers a much-needed vision of how boys can truly move forward as better men.

            Whether by choice or the result of an unpredictable predicament, heading a two-person family is probably not what you anticipated as a youngster looking toward the future. Perhaps you envisioned having a conventional family of your own, but that plan was stumped by illness, separ...ation, divorce, or death of a partner. Or, maybe, you found yourself of an age where the traditional family scenario was no longer obtainable. Whatever the circumstances, single parenting has its challenges. In Parent and Child, author Kathleen M. Waddington offers practical advice for single parents raising a child on their own. Based on her personal experiences and those of other single parents, she addresses a host of topics, including: living in the moment, family dynamics, keeping the peace, creating your community, discipline, managing stress, the pursuit of happiness, enhancing confidence, and more. Offering guidance for a variety of stages in the parenting journey, Parent and Child recommends letting go of the fallacy that bigger is better and begin to appreciate the advantages of being part of a smaller family unit. It shows you how to discover ways of embracing challenges fueled with courage, strength, and integrity.
