1 in 7 mothers experience postpartum depression. Between 5-10% of women will develop postpartum thyroiditis in the first year postpartum. Mothers are deeply struggling with health issues while also trying to care for their young babies. As a mother myself, I experienced the struggle which is why I have developed my Postpartum Wellness Protocol. As naturopathic doctors we are in a unique position to help women feel balanced and healthy on their motherhood journey. In this webinar you will learn effective ways to support postpartum women in your practice including lab work and breastfeeding-safe herbs and supplements.
Why postpartum care is lacking and the power you have as a doctor to help mothers.
Important lab work to assess new moms for hormone balance and nutrient deficiencies that frequently contribute to anxiety, depression and overwhelm.
Herbal remedies for new mothers including discussion about breastfeeding and herbs.
Cultural competency when working with mothers: how to talk about their birth, breastfeeding and healing journey in an informed and inclusive way.
