While postpartum depression has become a recognizable condition, The Postnatal Depletion Cure is the first book to treat the nutrient depletion, sleep loss, and emotional shifts that afflict women up to a decade after giving birth.
Most mothers have experienced exhaustion, pain, forgetfulness, indecision, low energy levels, moodiness, or some form of baby brain. And it’s no wonder: The process of growing a baby depletes a mother’s body in substantial ways – on average, a mother’s brain shrinks 5 percent during pregnancy, and the placenta saps her of essential nutrients that she needs to be healthy and contented. But with postnatal care ending after six weeks, most women never learn how to rebuild their strength and care for their bodies after childbirth. As a result, they can suffer from the effects of depletion for many years, without knowing what’s wrong as well as getting the support and treatments that they need.
Any woman who has heard What to Expect When You’re Expecting needs a copy of The Postnatal Depletion Cure. Filled with trustworthy advice and protocols for successful recovery from a compassionate expert in women’s health, The Postnatal Depletion Cure will help every mother restore her energy, replenish her body, and reclaim her sense of self.
