You want to be proactive about your postpartum health, but aren’t sure what to do? Struggling or worrying about healing after having a baby? Wondering if you are doing the right things for yourself and your baby’s health? The thought of trying to make an appointment with any kind of practitioner seems logistically difficult? Can’t find a practitioner that meets your needs in your area? Can’t get a babysitter? It’s hard to take time off from work? You just have too many balls in the air?
Whether this is your first baby or your fourth, you know (or will soon learn!) that taking care of yourself postpartum, going to appointments — heck, just taking the time to eat becomes more difficult after having your baby. You also know that healing after giving birth is very important.
The first three months after a full term pregnancy is considered the fourth trimester. Unfortunately, it is also known as the “forgotten trimester”. Postpartum health is more than a women’s issue. It is more than losing the ‘pregnancy weight’. It is vastly important to not only the woman herself, but for her baby and for her family. Not only that, how you heal postpartum can have lasting effects on your health throughout your life. Women may lose their health after childbirth mainly due to improper recovery. In our modern culture, the concept of the ‘superwoman’ is rewarded — have your baby, jump up immediately, lose the pregnancy weight and resume normal life. But, it goes against thousands of years of experience in Oriental Medicine practice.
With access to resources and virtual consultations giving you continuity of care, I try to remove variables that may reduce your access to care.
The purpose of the Postpartum program is to help you heal with relevant, real-life solutions to help you recover after having your baby. Following proper recovery, you and your baby will enjoy more resilient health. The Postpartum program is a system of diet, lifestyle and healing modalities that will help you heal. When you properly heal postpartum it is said that “your body will not sag, you will not ache, your energy begins to recover and your uterus and abdomen will return to normal size.”
I absolutely love supporting women during postpartum and baby’s first year. I have seen it transform the health and outlook of both the mother and baby. The Postpartum program provides resources to give you resilience and strength in your daily living. Along the way, it’s also very fun to learn about!
I began this journey myself during my own pregnancy in my last year of Oriental Medicine school. Using the principles of Integrative Oriental Medicine and my experience with treating women and children through this phase of life since 2002, I have developed an online support program for you. This includes tips and ‘gentle nudges’ in the right direction during the fourth trimester following the birth of your baby, quality practitioner grade products and custom formulations. Not only that, I can bridge the location gap – with the ability to offer wellness consultations remotely and help you find relevant caregivers in your area, if they are available.
