Are you about to have or have you just had a baby? Wondering how to support your recovery? And if you are breastfeeding wondering how to recover while meeting your baby's needs for nutrients? Perhaps you are well into the first year and are feeling ready shed some of the baby weight?
The postpartum period is beautiful, messy and can be hard. It's like falling in love while you are too sleep deprived, sore and exhausted to fully appreciate it. And yet we do. It can be hard to remember that this is a sacred time to honour our body. We have just done something amazing. Just because women all over the world do it every day makes it no less wondrous. However, it is taxing on the body. The work of labour has been compared to running a marathon ( maybe three). But it is like running a marathon after months of sharing every meal, having your organs rearranged and increasing your blood volume by 50%. The body needs to heal.
Plus many mammas are doing the work of recovery while also breastfeeding. Meaning there are continued demands on your body.
The postpartum period is a time to grow into motherhood. We can become fierce and strong mamas in body and soul. Let me help you support your vision of mamahood with the nutritoin and lifestyle plan that is right for you.
