“Natural Therapies for Postpartum Depression and Anxiety,”
Webinar presented by Angela Potter, ND
Sunday, March 7, 2021
11:00 am - 1:00 pm MST

CMEs: 2.0 General approved by the Oregon Board of Naturopathic Medicine

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.

Learning objectives

  • 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.


Presenter
Dr. Angela Potter is a leading holistic doctor supporting mothers in their healing process after birth. After the birth of her first baby, she was amazed at how little support was given for whole-body wellness in this very unique time in a woman’s life. From there she developed her Postpartum Wellness Protocol that she uses with mothers nationally.

Dr. Potter has been interviewed for Healthline.com for postpartum-specific articles. She is a nutritionist as well as a doctor. Her office is located in Portland, Oregon where she lives with her husband and two toddlers. Find out more at www.drangelapotter.com.
