Prenatal & Postnatal Mamas

I love supporting mamas and mamas-to-be.  As a first time mama myself, and a mompreneur, I know how hard it is to achieve work-life balance.  Being a mama is a full time job in itself.  Mix that in with being a wife, caretaker of parents, friend, entrepreneur and all the other titles we give ourselves and it can be a recipe for disaster.

It doesn’t have to be this way, mamas!

I read an article on goop about postnatal depletion. It rocked my world like nothing I had read before. When I first read it, I realized more mamas needed to know about it and what to do to get their health back. I am sharing my own postnatal recovery journey here because I want other mamas to know they’re not alone. We don’t have to suffer in silence! I realized I needed many things including:

Being a mama is a tough, oftentimes lonely job. I have seen counselors, physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists and more following the traumatic birth of my first son in February 2015 and I believe my body is still recovering. In fact, the article on postnatal depletion postulates 7 years is the average length of time a woman’s body is depleted of necessary nutrients, vitamins and energy stores.

What can we as mamas do? What can we as a family do to support mamas?

Focus on HEALTH. First and foremost.

  1. Take the best supplements for your body
  2. Eat a healthy, balanced diet
  3. Exercise as much as you can for what your body allows
  4. Seek spiritual and emotional support from family, friends, church, community
  5. ASK for help. If you feel lonely, reach out. Talk to someone. Call 9-1-1 if you have to. Don’t let feelings of isolation, fear, anxiety or depression overwhelm you. There is hope.
