Important note: Clarins offers advice on the physical appearance of new motherhood. It is not intended to replace advice from your doctor, midwife, or physical therapist. They are the ones treating you and they know you. They are qualified to make the final judgment on what you can and cannot do for your health. The advice given here is based on the manual by Jacques & Olivier Courtin-Clarins entitled "Donner la vie en beauté" (Having a Beautiful Birth).
