Brave Healer Productions Announces the Release of Hot Mess to Hot Mom: Transformational Tools for Thriving After Childbirth and Beyond

BETHESDA, Md., April 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Brave Healer Productions announces the release of Hot Mess to Hot Mom: Transformational Tools for Thriving After Childbirth and Beyond, a funny, down-to-earth guide for everything women need after giving birth and beyond.

With a team led by Tara De Leon — a personal trainer, professor of health, fitness and exercise studies and mother of a three-year-old son — the book aims to help women who have given birth become HOT, which stands for Healthy, On It, and Thriving, through the realistic ideas of other women who know what it is like to run on little sleep in a body they no longer recognize.

There are chapters on gentle exercises for postpartum recovery, single steps for getting great sleep again, healthy eating strategies, recovering one’s body confidence and more.

De Leon recounts her story of feeling like a hot mess after she spent five years trying to conceive her son and discovering that her path back to exercising was harder than she expected. She set a new goal: to be strong, confident and badass.

Also featured in the book are stories from Valerie E. Anias, Robin Lee Arnesen, Julie Blamphin, Trish Brewer, Beth Conlon, Aubrey Edwards, Dr. Gina Hahn, Elizabeth Harris, AliceAnne Loftus, Kaitlyn Martin, Melissa Maxwell, Kelly Myerson, Tomika Robertson, Shelley Schoff, Melissa Szurovy, Dr. Irum Tahir, and Maria Winters.

“Covering everything from breathwork to rediscovering your sexuality to staying organized, this book has something for every mama. … I loved the unique structure where each expert would first share their story so you, the reader, can get to know them, their history, and where they’re coming from.
