Breaking the Postpartum Paradigm: Podcast EP1
I am so glad you have found my podcast and I can’t wait to share all of the hugely important information surrounding postpartum with you.
I have so much to say about postpartum health and well being, and much of what I’m going to share with you does not really fit the mold.
There are some massive myths and misconceptions around postpartum in the years after, and all of that is deeply affecting the way we as mothers experience motherhood.
These myths and misconceptions are happening for two main reasons: One reason is, there just isn’t a lot of data or science on postpartum and caring for mothers, it just doesn’t exist. The second reason is women are making up their own formulas and plans and solutions to fill a huge need for this gap in our healthcare.
I can’t wait to dive into the depths of postpartum with all of you and find ways to support you along this journey.
