Recently, I had a popular post deleted in a large maternal mental health group.
The basis for this was because my post on postpartum nutrition felt like it was “anti western medicine”.
If you are a provider and you’re not supporting your clients with at least sharing the significance of nutrient repletion (and therefore emotional and mental support), your clients are missing out considerably.
This doesn’t in any way mean that a provider is not good enough and not valuable enough for all the work they do without nutrition attached. WE NEED COUNSELORS/TRAINED MENTAL HEALTH PROVIDERS. They are essential to postpartum care and this conversation.
AND…. if we as providers are truly going to prevent, assess, and treat PMADs, we must include nutrition (even if it’s a few handouts and a referral).
This episode is for those who feel the same calling I do. For those who believe we must pave a better way when it comes to whole body postpartum care.
In this episode, I am sharing:
Why providers have an obligation to share the significance of nutrition
Adding value while staying within your scope of practice
High rates of deficiency in women after birth and the connection to anxiety and depression
Root cause care is the only way forward
Being stuck in awareness mode instead of making actual progress
Taking better care of our mothers will change the world
