Hair loss, low energy, crazy skin and digestion issues, anxiety, poor sleep.
You may have experienced one or all of these after you had a baby.
They’re common issues, but are they symptoms of something that we should be paying attention to? Something that we don’t have to just live with.
What if everything you knew about healing during the postpartum period was wrong?
After talking to my guest this week on the podcast, Maranda Bower, I started to question everything I knew about how to take care of my body postpartum.
She brings up some fascinating perspectives and compelling information about how nutrition plays a part in our healing not just in the months postpartum, but YEARS postpartum.
Maranda is a Postpartum Bliss Coach and Womb Whisperer® who’s supporting women in experiencing deep authentic healing, while eliminating postpartum depression and anxiety.
