There’s something you need to know…
The postpartum years have been greatly misunderstood.
We’ve been conditioned to believe that dysfunction, dis-ease, and disregulation are a normal part of motherhood.
After my own battle with postpartum depression and anxiety after my first child, I had to ask the question:
WHY is this happening?
Why are so many women struggling with mental health and autoimmune diseases?
Why are we and our mothers and providers not being taught this information?
And most importantly, how can we heal and prevent this in the first place?
