It includes cited information gleaned from over 200 published primary research studies in subject areas from exercise physiology and nutrition to depression and incontinence.

Content Available the Way You Want it
Getting Back to Me is available in multiple formats including:
• Ebook for Kindle (which can also be read on computers, tablets, and smart phones by downloading the free Kindle Reading Apps)
• handy “purse-sized” paperback book (8.5” x 5.5”),
• and a soon-to-be-released downloadable audio book.
What Getting Back to Me Doesn’t Do
If you’re looking for an all-in-one comprehensive workout plan like a Stroller Strides® or Baby Boot Camp® style plan, Getting Back to Me is not the book you are looking for. While this book does contain exercises, they are designed for moms who have recently given birth to promote healing, provide relaxation, and regain muscle strength, rather than to dramatically increase overall fitness. Getting Back to Me is the “warm-up” that gets you ready for those more comprehensive “new mom/mom and baby” workouts.
