Listen up ladies and listen closely: you do not need to be within one year of being postpartum to experience postnatal depletion issues.
Don’t believe me?
I know so many of us are convinced that you are no longer considered postpartum after one year of having baby, that diagnosis' related to postpartum no longer affect you once you reach the end of those 365 days or that once you're diagnosed with something...that's it. Some of you strive to reach that one-year mark because it is thought that all postpartum symptoms will just go away. I mean that would just make our lives easier right?
Postpartum health isn't that simple.
I invited board-certified physician, Dr. Christine Maren, on the Core Connections podcast to teach you how to thrive postpartum and beyond.
>>We have to be in the driver's seat with our health.<<
It’s all about being open-minded.
Instead of learning to live with the "new normal" of your diagnosis… strive to be your best health advocate and learn new lifestyle habits or wellness practices to see what is possible for your body.
Ladies, being aware, being knowledgable and being on top of your health will help you not only to heal symptoms in your body but prevent them from ever happening.
So this is Dr. Maren and I sharing our knowledge with you…not only as women's health professionals but as moms of three who want you to get your life back and thrive postpartum + beyond.
If you’re ready to hear why it's important to get to the root of the problem and how you can find better solutions, plug-in those headphones and take a listen because things are about to get real good. It all starts with clicking play >>HERE!<<
