As a mother of four, Heather Porter knows what it is like to
watch your body fall apart after pregnancy. Over the years, she
searched for a single manual for the female body, a mother's
encyclopedia. When she could not find anything like it on the
market, she set out to write it herself.
Heather recalls, "For me, it wasn't just about shedding the
pregnancy pounds but about learning how to be attractive and

diary that documented her thoughts and experiences and noted what
worked and what didn't.
